It has been a busy week but not in the sewing room. Work has been very busy and I also had a midwifery conference to attend for two days which was very inspirational and rejuvenating. I also had an interview for a new job but they have been slow to respond through the whole process so don’t expect to hear too soon.
This morning it was up early and my nephew and I were off to the local Farmers Market which is on the first Sunday of the month. It was very busy but great atmosphere-they close off a street in a shopping area and the stalls are all set up down both sides of the road. As well as doing lots of tasting we stocked up on marinated olives and feta cheese; herbs to plant in the garden, fruit and vegetables, natural honey and I got my scissors sharpened.
I have managed to make a Christmas sack using a pattern by Natalie Ross. I altered it in that I machine embroidered my Christmas tree using a design by Julie Hall. It pays to read instructions carefully as one of the cutting measurements was nearly two inches short,but luckily I realised that before I cut the material. I love the finished product but it is smaller than I had thought it would be so I am making a bigger one now.
Sue Ross BOM block 4 will not be far away so can’t wait to see what challenges that will bring. Have a good week everyone.
