Some fast days lately

It's amazing how much faster it goes when you're alone at home and have to make your own food! 😆 Or when you get involved in something or other that requires a little bit every day...

My husband has been travelling for work most of last week and most of this week, and although the daily routine hasn't changed, I do spend part of my evening cooking and suddenly evenings are a lot shorter...

I've also joined an Instagram thing called MIY March, basically the organizers post a theme related to sewing everyday and we post a picture on that theme, they select 4 every day and one of those selected on Saturday wins the weekly prize (which is also sewing related items...fabric, patterns, books, vouchers at fabric stores, etc...). So far I haven't been selected, but at least its fun to try.

I continued embroidering in front of the TV on weekday evenings, and did sewing in the weekends, so I've actually made good progress in my planned "Sewing for others" list. The baby shirt and pants are done, as well as the pants from the (romper and pants pair)

Silje finally came to visit yesterday and tried the dress and two skirts I made for her. The skirts fit great...but the dress didn't! 😭 It was a bit too tight...I'll have to try to fix that, but not sure how much I can do...and it'll have to wait after the collection is done (I'm really not in the mood for fixing). But lesson learned: I'm never making her things again without a fitting session or two in the middle!

And this is my hundredth post! Yippiiieee 😃

    1. Hi Riya, thanks for taking a look at my humble blog, glad you like it and hope you come back again :)
      MIY March is an Instagram game/competition created by Wendy Ward, for full details on how to join, see this entry from her blog:
      There is a prize every Sunday but it's not always open for those living outside of the UK (first week was international, this week is UK only for example).
      Looking forward to seeing what you post :)
