Cut, pin, dig,dig,sew.

I did venture out into the garden after my walk with Rufus. My timing was absolutely spot on, just as I walked through the gate it started to rain.
I went back and did a little sewing,  well cutting to be precise, then pinning and finally (a good while later) some sewing.


A little stack of smallish hearts in various shades of pink, destined to become bunting, all with the same backing fabric. A light weight 100% cotton home dec fabric, bought many years ago in Dunelm for £2 a mtr. 


A few medium size and even fewer bigger hearts, more pink prints, same backing. These are as yet in the "I am not sure how to use them yet" category.


This is half made and will be on the bed, possibly with a supporting cast of some of the medium sized ones.

These are all a little "bling" to decorate Fran,s room for her next visit.


This is just a reminder for me, I need to open it and get the pattern pieces out and pressed flat. I like to measure the pieces before deciding what size to trace off. The fabric is ready to go and I am thinking of extending it into a dress as well. I have a double sheet to have practise run and if it works I have the fabric ready to use.

I did get back outside for an hour or so later, it was considerably warmer than Thursday. I did not do very much but you can see were I have been.

The SO has a cold, poor thing, so tonight,s dinner will be a butternut squash and chickpea curry to warm him up. It will be going in the slow cooker and burble away with no attention while I play in the sewing room.

Enjoy your weekend, were ever you are. keep warm if you are in cold snowy climes and stay cool if you are in the sunny side of the world.

  1. Oooh, the butternut and chick pea curry sounds wonderful. It wet and wild here, again! The sewing looks lovely :D
    Someone commented recently that she gets so bored in the wet weather! All the time there are crafts to do, there's no time to be bored!

    1. It is a tried and tested recipe and needs no rice or naan bread. I don.t have a second to be bored in, thank goodness.

  3. One of these years I am going to try my hand at making a bunting.

    I love the blouse pattern. Since it flows so nicely you should be able to extend it to a dress.

    God bless.

    1. Bunting is an easy make but v e r y tedious, once it is hung though it transforms the area. I plan on making some standard triangle from my scrap bag later.

  7. It has rained steadily all day here. An ideal day for indoor persuits. Your bunting fabric is so pretty. I had never thought of making hearts. They really will brighten up the room.
