...Um, yeah so I wasn't back before Christmas... or January... or February... or even March! So thank you for your patience if you have carried on following me or are a new follower.
Part of the reason for my absence is that my husband and I have separated and therefore I won't be living in this house too much longer, and this house has always been a big part of my blog! I also broke my ankle at the end of February on a "look I'm freeee!" night out, which has meant husband moving back in to look after me and the girls. Yep, it's awkward.
Anyway, on a more positive note I have managed to make a couple of things to show you in the intervening time! Firstly one of my best friends was given a sewing tin for Christmas and asked me to give her some pins and cotton to go in it.
Never one to resist a challenge I decided to make my first pin cushion and a needle book along with a few other bits and pieces.Weirdly enough I chose to use the strawberry fabric before I found out the tin she was given also had strawberries on.
Everything's pretty simplistic but my friend was really pleased.
I also made a patchwork heart on the spur of the moment the other day. Lots of people have suggested that while I'm laid up with the cast on my leg that I should do more creative things, which I can see makes sense! Though I always struggle to make when I'm not happy so what with everything that's going on at the moment it has been a bit of a mental challenge. I am pleased with this though, and I think I will use it for a Facebook pay it forward that I signed up to months ago that needs to be completed this year.
Right, I think that will do for the time being, I will do my best not to leave it so long next time! Hope you are all doing well, love Mel xxx
