Hope everyone is well and comfortable – cool if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, or warm if you’re not.
As you can see from my digestives biscuit tin, it’s that time of year again. While this hasn’t been the happiest of years, I hope there’ve been pleasant surprises. Let’s celebrate those.
With countries and their citizens just a few clicks away, I hope you’ll join me and Su of Zimmerbirch on the 17th to raise a glass. Er, cuppa!
Catching up on other news… What have I been reading? Seems like not a thing. (Trying to get used to this latest editor is enough, as far as I’m concerned. 🤪)
However, there has been some sewing going on, even if for the home rather than m’self. After all, this has been a year of trying to be comfortable while being at home some/most/all of the time.
This summer I realised I never sat on my sofa. I started considering why and decided to sit on it, after I cleared off the piles of fabric and the patterns that were usually sitting/reclining/totally covering it.
I made myself sit on it for at least an hour every afternoon for a week. And I began to realize why I was uncomfortable.
It felt like I was trying to sit down and lean on beach balls instead of soft squidgy pillows. Oh! We sewers know how to fix that!
And there was no place for a reading light. Or a cuppa. 😱 No wonder I wasn’t comfortable!
It just so happened… coincidentally… I’d just collected a couple pieces of fabric I hadn’t quite known what to do with, but thought “You can always make pillows.”
SO, whilst me and my comfy sofa would love to welcome you all personally to my home, it’s not the year for it.
However, I hope you’ll find time to click and drop by for a quick cuppa on the 17th.
❤️ ❤️ Meanwhile, please take special care! ❤️ ❤️
