Let’s be honest…it’s been a while since I put anything on this blog; over a year in fact! So first of all, welcome back! I’m planning on getting my blog back up and running as I’m still very much sewing every day and making lots of things that I can share with you. I share a lot over on my Instagram but there are few garments that I would like to go into more detail about over here.
I’m planning on sharing some of my recent makes. Some are sponsored, some are work related, some I’ve had the fabric given to me and some are just my own me mades. I’ll be fully transparent within each blog, just so you know which is which!
Over the last year, I’ve really worked on building up more of my paid sewing work. I’m working in the local community offering group classes and individual sewing classes. My group classes have just got back going again, but with how the World is at the moment, my private lessons are becoming more popular.
I’m also on the writing team for Sewing Life Magazine [Aff Link]. It’s an online magazine which is released bimonthly. You get a sewing pattern and a magazine that is full of useful articles. I write a few articles and sew up samples for each edition.
Home-wise we are doing ok! As well as anyone can be doing through a pandemic anyway. Rosie is 2 and a half and is quite the toddler. She makes us laugh every day and now loves it when she gets to wear the clothes that Mama made for her!
Well, it does feel lovely to write another blog. Something I haven’t really sat down to do for a long time. Please say hello again! Speak soon xx
More often than not, my Sunday Sevens posts have been catch-up posts rather than weekly but that’s the great thing…Sunday Sevens doesn’t have to be regular…thankfully!
I’ve found that life is just flying by recently. Rosie turns 6 months this week and our days together have yet to be boring. She is amazing us with how many new things she is learning and what she manages to do. We’ve finally got a little bit of a routine together where we try to get out of the house at least once every day. I’ve found a very good local Mom’s Fitness group where the kids can come along while the parents take part in a class. I park Rosie at the side of the hall and she watches everything that is going on. Occasionally she gets a bit cranky but it’s so relaxed there, I really don’t feel awkward if she does happen to cry.
Hello! A little update on life for you all in the form of Sunday Sevens. Rosie is entertaining herself on her play mat so I’m speedily typing in the hope that she doesn’t get bored soon.
It was Mardi Gras season back in February and it was also reasonably cold for us. We bundled up and headed into town to catch some throws at a parade. Rosie loved watching the lights go by and even caught her own Moonpies. The following day, we nipped down to Fairhope to watch the Mystic Mutts parade…a parade for dogs! It was by far my favorite!
It really does feel like such a long time since I last wrote a Sunday Sevens post but I’m starting the year as I plan to go on. Today’s post is a little bit of a catch up of little things from the last couple of months and in true tradition, it’s a day late!
It was my birthday back in December and Adam bought me a KitchenAid Stand Mixer. I’d been eyeing one up for a while and had heard a lot of great things about them. I’ve had a basic mixer for a while but as it was one from the UK, the voltage was different so it didn’t mix very well. I was very pleased to get this and it’s made baking so much quicker!
Apologies for the brief hiatus! I’m only just getting the chance to sit down and put my blog post together after a couple of busy weeks! I will get round to commenting & pinning other Sunday Sevens at some point I promise! 🙂
Here are a few photos from the last couple of weeks.
1. Adam & I had been trying to get to a sports bar we enjoy for a couple of weeks…we did attempt to go twice but ended up arriving in Downtown Mobile when big events were on so we couldn’t get parked. We finally got there last week and enjoyed a nice pulled pork sandwich.
2. It was a lovely evening so we even ate outside!
I hope everyone has had a great week! We have been quite busy this week – sewing, dog training & lots of walks. The weather is still hot but I’m hoping that the storms next week will keep things a bit cooler. Air-con is my best friend at the moment!!
1. My new planner came. I’m hoping to be more organised with crafting, blogging, sewing & cooking! Fingers crossed!
