Hello my lovelies. Well we seem to have made it thru the end of January and the beginning of February. And if you’re reading this you also survived the very rare Blue Moon. I find January and February the hardest months to get thru …. less than four weeks to go. I can already see that the days are getting longer.
It’s been a brilliant day here at happy stitching manor. I’ve been a productive happy stitcher indeed. My washing machine has been whirring away. I’ve answered emails, placed a couple of online orders and once all the boring stuff was done I immersed myself in a little English Paper Piecing …..
This quiet repetitive work nourishes my soul. It’s slow sewing to which you do not see quick results but there was a time when it was my solace.
I flipped the page on my calendar yesterday …..
Isn’t that a great quote? Believe you can and you’re halfway there. I must remember that next time I attempt a new technique that I’m not very confident about.
And here’s another quote that we should all remember when we’re rotary cutting the patches for a new project …..
My Sarah bought and framed this print for me for Christmas. It’s going to look great in my freshly painted sewing room.
I’ve chosen my next new little project. I’m hoping I might be able to start and finish it all in one weekend. These prints were purchased to make simple bunting. I haven’t decided how to approach this task but you can bet that I’m going to keep it as simple as possible. It’s going to look fab hanging in my sewing room. Change is as good as a rest.
It’s been a good week in my little world. It was quiet leaving me plenty of time to catch up on different things that needed doing. It helped keep my stress levels down. I do appreciate weeks that don’t have many disasters to be dealt with. It seems that February is off to a good start. Next week will be busy but hopefully the disaster count will be low again. I’m hoping for a productive weekend so that I can show you some proper sewing progress.
So, that’s my report for this last day of the week. I hope you all have a super-duper weekend doing things you truly enjoy. Until next time,
Let’s all keep stitching
