Mid-week Break

  • I can’t believe I forgot to point you towards Cate Anevski’s Blog Hop post! Such a dummy. I invited Cate after my post here, and she answered the same questions on her blog over here.
  • Part Two of our Summer Nights Stitch-along is online at Sew Mama Sew now!
  • A bunch of awesome peeps have posted about the Foldio lately and I totally have toy envy! What an awesome tool – UK shops: pretty please stock this asap, ok?! Thanks.
  • My lovely friend Cheryl (aka elephantjuice on IG and Twitter) shared this link about The Worst Star Wars Exhibition Ever. And it really is. But oh god, how I want to go to it. Seriously, so much.
  • I’m taking deep breaths and keeping calm, getting ready to make a Sew Together Bag by Sew Demented for the upcoming Fat Quarterly Retreat (not that it’s only a week away and I’m totally running out of time or anything) – I’ll show you my progress soon, but in the meantime, there’s some beautiful versions below and some excellent tips at From The Blue Chair. Wish me luck!

Mid-Week Break

Holy cow, it’s been a long time since I posted a mid-week break! Yikes. My ‘regular feature’ posts were put aside during the chaos that was Christmas and, well, all the surrounding months, so I’ll try to get back into the swing of things over the coming weeks!

Ok, speechifying over. Want to see the pretties? This week’s is a particular pretty mosaic, isn’t it?! Have a good week, friends!
