My sewing machine has been hibernating for the last couple of weeks. The children are off school and I have to compete for space with jigsaws, colouring books, dress-up dolls, Sylvanians...to name but a few! I try not get impatient about this, and go sew in another room, because in a week the children will be back at school, and I will miss them!
So to amuse myself I made some mosaics of my sewing over the past year...
I made these things for myself and some of the other adults in my life.
I made a blouse and skirt for my mother, and a shirt for my husband...both were nerve racking, but the results were very rewarding.
Also in this is a bra, which I wrote about here, and I got a great response about it...which was really nice...all I wanted to do was tell people that sewing lingerie is not that difficult!
I also sewed a swimsuit/tankini for myself...can't remember if I blogged about it, but probably not!
For the children...
It is funny to look back at all of these clothes. Some have been worn everytime they have been clean and dry...and some sadly have never been worn. I have two very fussy little ladies who refuse to put on certain things...really life is too short for arguements...so I am hoping that they will still fit when the girls grow out of their "I want to be a boy" phase!
When I have not been sewing, I have been knitting a bit...
And of course, I managed to fit in a couple of quilts and quilt tops.
The two on the bottom went to two friends' baby boys, and the other two are keepers. The top RH one is on the wall upstairs, and top LH one will be quilted by hand before too long, hopefully!
Thanks to you all for reading along during the year..and I wish you all a peaceful and Happy New Year!
