Oh, I've been awfully quiet here this week. I kind of don't know where this week has gone! Unfortunately, I was signed off work for another week, much to my dislike, and haven't really felt inspired to blog about much. That doesn't mean I haven't been sewing! Oh no! I've been pretty busy keeping myself occupied on the sewing front! I've got an Anna Dress, Lakeside Pyjamas, a Saltspring Dress, a shirt I made for my dad and a Vogue mash-up dress to show you in the next couple of weeks. And I've also got a few more projects cut out waiting to sew! So see, I have been using my time off productively!
Also, I've been working on some top-secret projects for work (watch this space) as well as some VM stuff for the shop. And I don't know if I've mentioned, but I'm now doing the Mandors Blog and this week the lovely Debi of My Happy Sewing Place make a stunning summer dress as a guest post for us, if you haven't already, I'd suggest go checking it out!
The other thing I done this week was change my room about and end up with the perfect sewing studio! We moved my TV to another wall and mounted it up high so I can now lie on my bed, comfy, and watch TV, which cleared up my desk space. This allowed me to move my overlocker upstairs and sit it next to my sewing machine, giving me this awesome set-up:
And finally, in line with sorting out my sewing space, I had a major de-stash! I'm planning on selling some of it on Etsy, once I get round to uploading all the pictures. It'll mostly be short ends, leftover from projects that I've made, no less than about half a metre and there will also be some quilting cottons. Whilst I was cleaning out, I found the fab fabrics Claire sent me as a part of Kerry's Spring Sewing Swap and realised I haven't actually posted about them! So in order to rectify this, here's the goods:
I'm planning a beach cover-up with the multi-coloured one and an O'Keefe skirt for the musical print.
I'm hoping to be back to regular posting next week, so see y'all here then :)
