Friday Night Sew In

I have been working of Fig n Berry Bom Twas the night before Christmas from 2016 and I got the 6th one finished.  (3 more to go)

I also managed to get the binding on this Christmas quilt.  (I rang out of time before).

This week I have been having a big clean up and sort out of my material.  Amazing what you find and wonder when you bought it.  I have a plan in my head on how my sewing storage area should look like so lets hope it works out.

I have also been sorting out Angus's bedroom and getting him ready for starting back at school next week.

2017 New year

The last few weeks of 2016 were very busy.  I had a special 0 birthday and lots of Christmas events to attend.

I have started the new year doing some hand stitching.  Lisa's (Fig n Berry) Twas the night before Christmas bom from 2016.  I am now (6 months behind).  Lisa has a new bom starting Feburary so im hoping to get this one nearly finished before the next one starts.

The other night I felt like knitting so I made some more fancy coat hangers for my dresses to stop them falling off.

This year I plan on finishing a lot of kits and using up fabric that I have.  No more impulse buying  I need to use what I have and buy to finish things off.  I am feeling very overwhelmed with the amount of things I have everywhere.

This year is about clearing out things I don't use or need, making things easier to get to.  Spending more time with my boys and doing a lot of fun things.

Happy New Year
