Sew overwhelming

Yesterday was a bit of a write-off (get it 😉) as the night before had been filled with lots of delicious food and many drinks with my soon to be brother-in-law and his wife. 3am came and went, with dancing to 90 cheese and totes emosh conversations occurring. So you can imagine we weren’t in the best state to be productive the next day.

However, I had the urge to be crafty…..not in a sneaky way.

Instagram is great for inspiration and getting the sewing/making vibe, but at the same time, I’ve got so many things I want to make from my stash, and things I want to make for our new house (I’ve got blackout material pinned to our bedroom curtains so guests get some good sleep – that’s as far as I’ve got!) that I just don’t know where to start!!

Maybe I should have a planner/diary of stuff to make – but that almost feels like it’s getting in the way and I should just make something!!

The more I don’t make something because I’m tied about what to make, the more frustrated I get.

Vicious sewing spiral.

However, I did, in the end, make a cheeky little bag to keep my coloured pencils in to try out the Janome sewing machine I had acquired from my friend who has gone on a travelling adventure. Check out their blog to follow their antics PittTraveling.
It needs a zip, but that’s something i’m going to need to purchase another day. For now, this is enough to get me back into the swing of things!

Also – where’s the sewing emoji? Come on!!

Happy Sunday!!
