Monthly sewing update July 2018

This month was so busy with non-sewing related stuff! For one thing, I moved back in with my parents (very cool, I know). Also, there were more Kenya preparations to be done. Still, I managed to work on quite some projects. Quilting, sewing and embroidery is the thing that calms me down and keeps me sane…

Monthly sewing update: June 2018

It’s the last month of June already! Gosh, time is going quick. My room is turning simultaneously chaotic and empty because I am preparing to move at the end of July. Isn’t that a strange thing: chaos and more space at the same time? This does mean that I have to pack up some of…

Monthly sewing update: May 2018

Another month has passed and a lot of creativity has happened in that time! I’ve been very busy preparing fieldwork for my thesis for university, planning a wedding (not my own) and lots of other stuff. For my fieldwork, I plan to go to Kenya for four months in August. My research will be focused on…

Monthly sewing update: December 2017

Wow, this one was a long time coming. I had a little break from quilting and sewing because first my website broke down and I had to rebuild it. Also, there was a lot of school stuff and other things I had to do. But I am back now! So hide your fabric, because I…

Monthly sewing update: July 2017

Sometimes I discover really silly things I have been doing wrong sewing related. Every time that is a very nice reminder that I am still new to the craft and that I have a lot to learn. Last month, for example, I discovered that you need to clean your sewing machine to keep it running…

Monthly sewing update June 2017

The time spent on projects differed a lot this month. The first two weeks were the last two of a reading challenge I participated in and I really wanted to finish it, and I did! But this also meant less time for sewing because I was reading. I did, however, discover the joy of doing…
