Do you know that funny feeling you get when you’ve been away and then have to get back into the swing of things again? Well I’m feeling a bit like that as I type away today, as if I don’t really know what I’m doing! So please accept my apologies if this doesn’t make much sense, it’s just me getting used to it all again 🙂
August came and went surprisingly quickly, we had sad times at a family funeral, and happy times going on day trips with family we don’t get to see very often. I did a lot of gardening – our garden has got to the stage where it needs a hack back to get it in order, it’s still not there yet but Autumn is the season for serious pruning so I’m ready to go!
And of course I did some sewing (did you expect anything else from me?)
Most of the sewing I did was for my Church – the Church banner project (read about it here) which has taken HOURS and HOURS, days and days and is still no where near done. My Sewing/Dining room is festooned with half completed fabric panels.
But it is slowly coming together now and a few of the panels have been given to others to work on and for that I am grateful.
During any car trips I’ve been working on my EPP project, as it’s grown in size it’s been getting more and more difficult to handle and the bits of thread it has shed over everything has been a bit of a talking point. I’ve been trying to get everyone to believe that when they find a loose thread it’s lucky – a bit like the rhyme
‘See a penny, pick it up, all day long you’ll have good luck!’
But I’m not sure they’re buying into that theory 😉
I had fun removing most of the papers,
and now it looks like this…
As you can see I’m at the putting borders on stage BUT I seem to have made a mistake along one side and not left enough seam allowance on. I’m having a ponder on how to avoid losing those star points without having to undo anything- any ideas please?
Do you like the new look blog? I spent a few happy hours playing and came up with this. From what I can see the only thing I don’t like is that it’s not clear as to how to comment and like posts. and as I love getting comments I’m going to have to get round that somehow.
Until next time,
