Now, however, everyone is on the mend and I have sewing on my mind. As you know, and as anyone who also reads my personal blog may also know, I am expecting another baby in about a month and a half.
Now that I have my new sewing machine, I would love to make something for the new arrival. I had a dig around in my fabric stash and rediscovered this fabulous green animal-print cotton sheet that I picked up at a Brocante in France a few years ago. It came with a pillow case, which I made into a cushion, using the remaining scraps as patches for an eiderdown that I found at the same Brocante. The sheet, however, I have been loathe to cut into, and as yet I have struggled to think of the right project to use it for.
I did wonder about a quilted play mat so that I could keep a large section of the fabric intact. I have been perusing my sewing books in hope of inspiration but I am hoping that some of the clever sewists who read the blog might have some suggestions!
In an ideal world, I might manage a little sewing time over the Easter weekend. Here's hoping!
