stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
This week we are having a few alterations done on the house. The banisters have come down, the ceiling has gone up and now everything is getting a fresh coat of paint. This is all long overdue and we’re very pleased with the improved space but I haven’t been able to get to my sewing machine. All of the other rooms in the house are full of the displaced furniture, my fabric and threads are in different rooms, (they don’t need a whole room each :)) and I’m feeling a little discombobulated.
The sewing I can get to, binding and sewing in ends, is keeping me sane (and on schedule for deadlines) and I managed to find some fabric I had put by for a demonstration day at Godinton House. This is coming up soon, well, March 30th, so it’s great to play a little and call it prep!
The day will be aimed at families having a go and trying something new, so I thought it would be fun for even the youngest to glue a hexie, older ones can stay and stitch. Come and join in if you’re in the area, it would be lovely to meet you! The gardens are worth a visit and there are lovely little walks too.
Once the decorating is done, I’ll be having to reorder my workroom, no mean feat, I think it will be a while before I can find things easily again. This need to sew is surprisingly overwhelming and I’ll be very pleased to get to my sewing machine again soon. In the meantime I’m happy playing with a few hexies and these lovely woodland themed fabrics 🙂
