Modest March

Hello blog! Things have been a bit uninspiring on the sewing-front this month. I’ve been ploughing my way through making four more Roman blinds for our loft bedroom. I’m so happy that they are finished and very happy to see the back of the scuffy, broken ones that have hung there for the last seven years. It’s safe to say that blind making is out of my system now.  

 This was the first one to go up. I bought a double width stripe fabric. The extra width did make things much easier and it was much simpler than the linen I used last time.

The only other things to emerge from my sewing machine were a pincushion for my mum on Mother’s Day. There will be more of these! Here’s how to make them.

And a bit of scrappy tinkering to try and ignite my sew-jo. 

 It’s the easter holidays now and we are heading away for a few days, so April won’t start with much sewing either!  I do have a whole weekend of  stitching to look forward to at the end of the month with my lovely friends.
