SUCH a welcome break from pixels, I have to say.
First, so happy so many of your liked Away We Go too! I have another lesser known recommendation you might like: The Go-Getter. Add it to your queue.
Back in the beginning of the year when I first became a seamstress (HAAAAA), I found myself at the UCC perusing their books on sewing. I was supposed to be walking before breakfast while Brock was running, but shopping and latte sounded better at the time. And I ended up with 2 lovely books by Lotta Jansdotter.
So excited about these books. So excited that I found myself buying fabric remnants on Lotta’s site approximately 3 hours after I purchased them.
But I did actually make things from my scraps!
Coasters! I am currently restricted to things of the rectangular persuasion, but I am getting better.
Draft Snake! I went three dimensional over the weekend. Very satisfying. But we have approximately 10 old leaky windows in our house and only one snake to block the drafts. It moves from window to window.
Okay, actually I made a pillow over Christmas while I was on my bunting kick. So I’ve don’t 3-D before. But still. I can’t believe how satisfying it is to make things. Even though they are mostly squares.
I have all sorts of plans for making baby bloomers and things when we find out what kind of baby we have.
Only two more days of work at the office. Then I can indulge my nesting impulses to the max.
