I'm back!

I haven't blogged in a very long time... I hadn't really been doing much sewing in the winter. I have been moving around quite a bit and it wasn't so easy to set up my sewing machine.

So I spent my winter doing other stuff. I learnt how to crochet! That was something I had wanted to learn for a very long time (my nana tried to teach me about 15 years ago but I thought it was too hard - this was after she taught me how to knit. Now I think crocheting is easier than knitting!). Thank you Jess for teaching me!

I crocheted a hat.
It had been so long since I had made a pompom that I had kinda forgotten how to do them!


I had been at my friend David's place one night and he asked me if I wanted his straw hat. I didn't so he opened the window and flung the hat out. We were in a pharmacy a few weeks later and the straw hat was there!!!


There was a lot of cake baking and lunches and dinners with friends.


After we ate the heart of the cake....


It's funny looking back through my last months of photos. There seems to be a heart theme. Liz made these sugar cookies for Valentines. It was really fun decorating them. And even better eating them.


I have pics of a red dress I made to post but I am too sleepy to do that now. Tomorrow...
