My Favourite Things #12


Hi y’all, the next instalment of our Thermoweb sew-along is ready to go. You can find it on the sew-along page here. This week I’ve uploaded the templates for a rocket, a donut, and a sunflower.

Spud is still on the mend, his depression is a bit hard to manage, but he’s better. I think the endless rain is getting him down, he’s bored if that makes any form of kitty sense. He gets really sulky and won’t talk to anyone.

Hubby is doing okay with his Covid infection. I have no idea if I have it or not, the RAT is coming back negative but I’m breathless and have been achy, tired, and nauseous on and off for the better part of the week. I should go and get a PCR test but it’s bucketing down again.

The new ‘Best Friends’ pattern is ready to go, I just haven’t uploaded it to the website yet. They are about 40cm (15 inches) tall. Very easy to make (who can be bothered with all those inset seams) and can be whipped up in an afternoon. It’s raining so much I can’t get a good photo so this one will have to do for the moment.

I haven’t as much as looked at my sewing machine for weeks. Spud, Covid, this bloody rain. I had to go and buy a clothes drier lol. We haven’t needed one for nearly 10 years but this past few months have been sodden. Everything is wet, muddy, and mouldy. I’m so very happy the drought has broken (for us) but wow this has been ridiculous (and I adore rainy weather). At least the house plants are getting a good soaking and dusting lol.

Take care of yourselves, have fun, much love, toni xx
