Thank you to everyone who left such lovely, and often personal, comments on the last post. I really do appreciate the support, it was very comforting to read and I had hoped to reply direct, via email, but in all honesty right now, I find it easier to just move on as best I can so do please forgive me for that; I know you will, but people wrote such lovely things I would have liked to have replied back, but for now I just need to leave it all be as best I can.
So, I’m back. Gosh I’ve missed my little studio space (now shared with the boys, who don’t know how to stick to their half….I think we might have to set some rules). I have actually been sewing, but mostly tweed curtains for my sister and as I’ve mentioned before, I’m not mad keen on ‘straight line’ sewing.
So today, I moved the nearly finished curtains aside and tidied up my desk, ready to get back to some fun sewing. I love this room, even though it’s quite cold outside, the hint of sun warms up the glass wall, making it quite cosy in here and I often stare out into the garden and watch the wildlife.
I have many piles of new fabrics, waiting to be put away, and lots of magazines that need filing. I’m thinking of cutting back my subscriptions. I find more and more that it feels repetitive reading the same ones, perhaps if I take a break, then come back later, I might find them more inspiring? I couldn’t give up Country Living though, it’s my yearly little Mother’s Day/Birthday gift to myself.
I’ve updated my inspiration/note board ready for a more spring vibe, although I might try to get ahead with some products for next winter whilst it’s still cold outside; there was so much I didn’t get around to that I’d still like to make.
Right, I need to get back to tidying, now to tackle ‘their’ side, honestly look at it! I’m not sure where to start. Oh, there’s a giveaway next post to celebrate my (belated) bloganniversary – hurrah 🙂
