I might be on holiday right now but I thought I’d get my monthly roundup post up!
August was yet another busy month full of crafty related activities!
In the news…
I was invited to a blogger event run by Happy Fabric which specialises in iron vinyl. I had a lovely evening of crafting and made these lovely things!
I decorated two little wash bags and hand cut and layered pieces to make the leopard print on a cushion cover!
The second fabric pop up at The New Craft House happened and it was the Sew Me Sunshine pop up! Harriet brought some lovely fabrics with her and I snagged a few beautiful pieces – one of which was the pineapple print that I used in this dress. I also got a couple of burgundy prints that’ll be perfect for a fall wardrobe!
I made it to another London stitchers meetup this month. This time it was held at the V&A and we even managed to catch a few rays sitting out in the quad. It was lovely as always to meet up with so many like minded people and just chat about sewing!
I was lucky enough to be asked to do a Love Sewing magazine review and we had the photo shoot for the garment a couple of weeks ago! (I don’t say no to being pampered and getting my hair and makeup done! 🤣). Here’s a behind the scenes photo with editor Amy.
More photos to come!
The Sewing Weekender came around again for those lucky enough to snag a ticket a few months back. This time almost 100 of us descended on Murray Edwards College, Cambridge for a weekend of sewing, chit chat and all good things!
Here’s a peak at what was in the goody bag!
What I’ve been watching/ reading/ listening to…
If you haven’t already, watch To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before on Netflix. Yes it’s a bit of a teen flick but I loved seeing an Asian actress take pride of place in a movie for once! (Can you tell I’m also desperately waiting for Crazy Rich Asians to come out as well? 😂).
Reading-wise, I finally made it all the way through Pillars of the Earth! Once you get going it’s actually pretty absorbing. Who knew that building cathedrals could be so interesting?
I was lucky enough to see Hamilton a few weeks ago too. Now that was an absolutely amazing experience!! I’ve been listening to the soundtrack ever since and it’s been replaying in my head on a loop too! That’s definitely a musical that’s lived up to the hype!
What have you been up to this month? X
