forced the kids out to the park. Cue much whining: “but mummy you only want us to go so you can sit outside knitting!” Yes. Busted.
this Archer shirt has the best buttonholes EVER!! Find out how I did it on the blog, which I just dusted off after almost a year. I’ve been feeling ambivalent about bothering with blogging, or even mini-blogging on instagram, with the algorithm having changed what I see and what that means for how I interact with all you lovely sewists out there. Plus just TIME being in such short supply. But, I like being part of this online community even if sometimes a rather passive one (that’s ok too!) and I’m just going to keep on dropping in and joining in when I can. And I have great affection for my little blog and the record it keeps of what I’ve made and where I’m at. So, hello again. Still here, still making 😘
also today: homemade peanut butter. Because in this day and age you’d think it’d be possible to get the crunchy stuff easily enough but NO not in Belgium apparently 🤦♀️
ok so I did get out of bed 😁 I don’t get to Berger so much these days as it’s a bit out of my way, but it’ll always be my favourite fabric haunt. Visiting this morning after a rather long time felt a bit like returning to my spiritual sewing home 😂 It’s scruffy, cheap and cheerful but they always amaze me by managing to have the latest must-have fibres - those rolls in the last pic are wicking for sportswear, in rather fab colours!
