Oh, it’s been a busy few days! We spent the weekend in London which was amazing, but wow! So. Much. Walking!!!! By Saturday evening we’d managed a whopping 11.5 miles. I don’t mind admitting my feet were a little tired by the end of the day!

I’m working on lots of things at the moment – which I’m really excited about sharing with you very soon – but it means there’s not quite as much sewing going on or the project’s going slower than normal, so there’s not much to show! Today though, I needed to sit at my machine for a bit and decided to tackle a bit of a UFO and use up some left over blocks – a double bonus!

I had the remnants of a hexie EPP panel left over that I couldn’t quite bear to throw away (because, you know, Liberty!) but when my eyes landed on it today I figured it would be the perfect size for this little project!

I sew with a Janome Horizon (which I absolutely love!), the only frustrating thing being that my old pincushion doesn’t fit around the neck. I’ve been managing, but recently I’ve taken to sitting my clip’n’pincushion on the bed of the machine so that I can place my pins and clips on there as I go (clearly, reaching around to the other side of the machine is just a step too far!).

I used my Clip’n’Pincushion pattern guide, using the ‘Make it Your Own’ instructions at the back to make it rectangular – the pincushion top finishes at 2.5″ wide x 5.25″ long, the perfect size for fitting in the throat of my machine.

I’m so pleased with it – not only did I manage to use up the remains of a perfectly good EPP block, I get to look at the pretty Liberty fabrics every day. And I don’t know about you, but I always find that doing little projects like this really help me get my sewing mojo back!

Anyways, lots to be getting on with. See you soon!
