Another view, Another Favourite!

My last make was the 1589a top with the peep hole back. Even though I have since altered the straps slightly, I really like the fit and style of it. I’m after a few tops that are light and not too long, allowing me to wear them with jeans, skirts or shorts. As the fit was nice and the top itself was relatively easy to make, I decided on giving view B a shot last week.

Sunday Sevens #36

Yey! Back to posting on a Sunday! Well, technically it is Sunday in the US but Monday in the UK 🙂

I feel like I have really got into the swing of things this week and have been quite productive!

1. They are replacing a lot of the roofing at the apartments and the building work puts Maisy off walking. She lays down every time we pass a large vehicle or a skip! Fun!

 Welcome to Talented Tuesday No. 27!

Unfortunately this will be my last party!  I just don’t have the time at the moment to be consistent with the party anymore 😦  It’s a shame because I have enjoyed being a hostess but I will still be linking up and coming over to look at the linked up posts.

From next week, there will be 3 new hostesses!  Lindi from Love Create Celebrate , Staci from Crafty Staci & Aspen from Aspen Jay 🙂 Watch out for their posts & social media links on the party next week!

Back to Sewing – a Summer Simplicity

Last week it suddenly dawned on me that I gone a full month without sewing! :-0  With our lives being a little hectic, I suppose that I had just let it slip.  It’s not a good enough excuse really as sewing is my favourite thing to do more than anything, yet I had let myself get hung up on too many other things and had not really been allowing myself any ‘me’ time!  So I decided to  set up a sewing station(despite our lack of furniture!) and got productive.

I recently bought a handful of Simplicity patterns while they were on sale for $3.99 over on Pattern Review.  I took advantage of this offer as all of the patterns were at least $15 full price.  If you haven’t checked out Pattern Review, you should!  I always search patterns on there before sewing, mainly to get recommendations for fabrics and to check for any known fitting issues.

 Welcome to Talented Tuesday No. 26!

Wow! I feel like this post is a bit of a milestone…we have been hosting this party for half a year now!! Isn’t that great?  It really doesn’t seem that long since we started the party!

That being said, unfortunately Meaghan from Cook Craft Love can no longer host with us 😦 A huge thanks must go to Meaghan for hosting over the last 6 months – I wish her well in her future ventures 🙂 So that means we are looking for a new hostess!! If you think you would be up for it, let me know and I can point you in the right direction…over to Kristina!

Don’t forget to follow us!
