Sewing has ground to a crashing halt, as the room where I would usually sew is mostly full of dust and workmen's tools during the week...but I did get a little sewing done this weekend in the form of making some Roman blinds, which are something entirely new to me. I can't say that I was leaping up and down in anticipation of making them as it feels more like Sensible Shoes sort of sewing - utilitarian and necessary - but it was a relief to finally turn my machine back on.

Back in December, with a new gold pen and a smudgy gold ink pad at my disposal I was looking for a subject matter to experiment with. I enjoyed doing this, as decorating the bolts of fabric also gave me a reason to use the old stamper that my sister bought for me as a gift a few years ago. My fabric girl wears rather demure ballet flats, but other than that I've tried to copy the photo faithfully. As a result my children are disturbed that the girl is headless. It's a feeling that I can relate to at the moment though, so I'm happy with that.
Wishing you a lovely week,
