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
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!
Today’s sky::: mostly blue with a few clouds, but quite chilly!
