The last few months have seen everyone around me succumbing to the colds and flu that come with winter and I was therefore destined to eventually get sick as well. Feeling unwell and with the added problems I’ve been having with my sewing machine (which has been back and forward with the repairer over the last month or so) has put a significant pause on my creativity and has made me fall very behind with my Made on Monday, weekly challenge.
I am currently 4 weeks behind but I spent today reconnecting with my sewing machine and experimenting with a piece I had started months ago but never progressed.
I’m trying various pattern options around the initial flower design that was done using variegated thread on a pieced/woven background and I am pleased with the progress so far.
Now that I am back in the (sewing machine) driver’s seat, I’m sure a little extra effort will put me back on track. I hate being behind schedule. The plan is to finish a few more pieces and post them on the weekend. Until then……
