I actually made a thing this week! I've still not really recovered the sewjo I'd misplaced before the pandemic changed the world but at least I can tick this off the list (albeit it only made it on the list when I started panic cleaning a few weeks ago, but I digress!) I have a small set of blocks for a friend to finish this week, but otherwise am not sure I can bring myself to sew much else, which is unfortunate given the upcoming 4 day weekend. [ 158 more words ]
So according to Track and Trace, this wee dude was finally delivered to the other side of the world last week, but I haven't heard from him yet 😔. Is he in parcel quarantine or has he maybe been left somewhere and my partner doesn't realise? #quiltersforkoalas #ss_teamplatypus if you're still waiting for your parcel and are in the southern hemisphere, could you possibly check please?
So I finally finished my panic deep cleaning of the flat, and I unearthed quite a few things to work on! I'm not sure why, but I have this ridiculously guilty feeling whenever I have an expanse of time when I could do something I enjoy if I feel like there's 'work' I should be doing instead, that I've been putting off until I had time.

This is a plea from a doctor friend of mine at the gym. She posted this on our page earlier and asked us all to share, so I figured it was the least I could do.
Things to do on my list now that I've cleaned the flat top to bottom (with the exception of the hoovering and washing that I saved for tomorrow)
There's a Sainsbury's reusable bag to fix, a pouch to make for my collection of elastic shoelaces, a couple of pieces of fabric to starch, a quilt to cut and a 🐻 or two to make.
Best get started during the #saturdaynightcraftalong with @charmaboutyou
Shopping my shop this morning for a customer order - I'm so glad I unearthed these wee IKEA baskets I bought for the retreat a few years ago, they make perfect order baskets!
I'm currently posting out on Tuesdays and Saturdays if anyone else has an urge to fix up their wee Featherweight or even just have a play with some new toys!

repost via @instarepost20 from @siblingstogetherquiltgroup Shop my Siblings Together stash: I have this bundle of 6 half m and 7 fat quarters of Freebird by Momo.
If you are looking for something to keep you busy in isolation why not make a cute quilt for the Siblings Together charity over the next few weeks. .
Let me know if you are interested while the post office is still operating 😉
So, it turns out I stress clean, which means I haven't sewn anything this week in between doing my day job (turns out I'm a category 3 key worker, and I don't even get a badge for it!) and gutting my flat. On the plus side I've unearthed all sorts of WIPs and things I'd been thinking of doing but never got round to before, so once I've done the 2nd hall cupboard, my hall bench and the daybed/camera stuff in my spare room, I'll be set with a mound of projects.

What interesting times we live in! I am now working from home for the foreseeable future, which initially made me think 'Yay, more time to play' and then I remembered that I actually seem to do more hours when I work from home than when I'm in the office. Since my gym is now closed, as of this morning, I think I'll be doing lunchtime walks round the park down the road to preserve my sanity as much as anything else! [ 171 more words ]
