Hello everyone! I hope you had a restful weekend/bank hol (in the UK).
It's hilarious. What with book writing and the rest, I'm just about to enter one of the busiest periods of my life (for umm...5 years) and I find I have the strongest urge to bake and sew clothing?!! It's true that when crafting is your day job (which as you know I wouldn't swap for most anything) it becomes harder and harder to craft for fun. It's just as well that I get a lot of enjoyment from crafting for work. But it can't all be work - otherwise it would show in my work. A girl's gotta satisfy her recreational urges too (that sounded naughty) So I've been hunting around for quick fix sewing patterns and kitchen quick fixes that I can fit in between the workload.
I'm seriously considering clicking 'checkout' on these sewing patterns (I'd love to hear from anyone who has tried these patterns):
Pattern no. V8278. Love the simple dress shape with the sash thing going on (great for if I've eaten 3 1 too many Kripsy Kremes).
Pattern V8571. Love the lines of this dress too. Decisions decisions.
and here's our weekend kitchen quick fix...
Before... Banoffee pie recipe is here.
