Monthly Meanderings - May 2020 No.01

I took my foot of the gas with sewing scrubs for the NHS in May. Mentally I needed a little time to focus on something a little less intense and so turned to bit of gardening, a little knitting and riffling through my Sewing UFO pile!

A Knitted Yoda & an 80s UFO ~

May started with a bit of gardening I was still trying to use those old seeds up, with mixed results, I also began my knitted Yoda (my predictive text keeps changing that to gourds) journey and delved into the wasteland that is my sewing UFO pile there are more projects in there than I feel comfortable admitting too, oh and I made some Banana bread - hasn't everyone at some point during lockdown? - mine while it looked good, was as dry as toast, ah, well I tried!

Monthly Meanderings - April 2020 No.3

I got a bit of a surprise towards the end of April when I became furloughed from work, part of me was a bit miffed as I love my job and was obviously anxious about what this might mean, the other part was delighted to have a few weeks of essentially free time, where I could spend my days sewing and doing anything, inside my home, that I wanted to.

Audiobooks, Sewing & Scrubs... lots of scrubs! ~

 I was spending most of my furloughed waking hours sewing and listening to listening to Audiobooks - a perfect combination I think, well apart from the regular need for machinery which usually meant the only sounds were heard were those of clattering mechanisms. Pauses in my listening pleasure aside I did manage to make an impressive dent in my audio book library!
