At the moment, I am fixing some of the many items I have laying about in my sewing boxes. Some of these items need a pocket or button sewn back on, there are a couple of bras that need new straps or new plastic adjustments and there are also a few wash bags that needs the last seems before they can be put up on etsy.
These past months, I haven’t looked at my sewing boxes, let alone decided to finish all of these projects, but yesterday – it all changed. I feel if I only finish the smaller projects first – I can start with the bigger ones (like my wedding dress), and the more lists I tick off, the happier I will be. Yesterday, I started by finally sewing on a support strip on one of my vintage looking cardigans. I will complete the hand stitches tonight and then finally, I can go to R’s sister A and borrow her sewing machine which makes wonderful button holes. All by itself.
Of course, I have a machine as well, but mine is old which means I have to do most of the job myself. I’m more than capable. But combining a visit to A with making my cardigan nice again is something I’d be more than happy to do!

It’s been a while since my last update but I’ve been ill back and forth, making it tricky to get anything done. The days when I’ve felt better lists have been written and ticked off bit by bit. I’ve also applied for jobs and contacted job agency after job agency and have a few meetings with some of them (yay!).
The days when I’ve felt worse, I’ve tried to keep myself motivated but mostly just ended up sitting in front of the tv with a dvd from our monthly rental service.

I also have several projects in the pipeline, some which I’m so excited about that I cannot go to sleep at night¬†whilst others I know would be so rewarding finishing but somehow I cannot ¬†make myself motivated enough.
