Having been unwell all over Christmas I attempted to return to work last week, however managed just one day before I was back home in bed with a course of antibiotics for a chest infection. Not the start I planned for the year, but it did give me chance to stay cosy in the warm and read my sewing magazines, catch up on blogs and watch a lot of vlogs! I have watched every vlog on both Like Sew Amazing and Gingerthread Girl, back to back.
I am really not very good at sitting around and not doing anything so if I hadn’t felt so unwell I would never have done so much reading and would most likely rushed into making something without preparing, messing up, then losing my confidence! This way I have had chance to learn what’s out there and get some tips and ideas.
I treated myself to Tilly Walnes – Love at First Stitch book, along with some fabric to get started on when I’m feeling 100 percent again! I have plans (and fabric!) to make the Margot Pyjamas, the Delphine Skirt and the Megan dress. So I would love to see any of your finished results for these and hear any tips you may have! I’m feeling super inspired by Gemma (A girl sew geeky) and Annie (You can’t stitch with us) and their Margot Pyjama results; also Naomi’s Megan dress (Naomi Sews) and Charlotte’s Delphine Skirt (Sew Tipsy).
I have also been reading Simply Sewing magazine and would like to make the Alice dress but haven’t seen any vlogs/blogs on that yet so waiting to see some reviews on how easy it is? I think I am going to busy enough with the Tilly makes for a few months though!
I did get as far as laying out my first pattern to have a good look, however whilst I was looking at my Margot pattern Woody (he so wants to be a blog dog!) tried to sit on it and put wet nose prints on it, luckily I can retreat to the table out of his reach. Hopefully by next weekend I will have started on something and have some actual sewing to share.
