Making a patchy muslin of a #kochikimono from linen & denim scraps. Wearable or hideous - only time will tell! πŸ˜„

The sleeping game is strong with this one. πŸ‘ŒπŸ’•

New to me via the glory of Gumtree this morning. Bernina Record 830. One owner only - I bought it from her son as he's helping her move into a nursing home. It's in perfect nick and sews like a dream. Even the original 1981 purchase docket is included. I'm in sewing nerd heaven! (Our new dog chewed the cord of my trusty Husky (doggie is safe!) and my other machine lives at the shop, so I needed a back up, right?!) Woohoo!

Gratuitous hound-settling-in photo. 😍

Hooray for new four legged friends. 😍

New favorite biscuit cutter.

I'm excavating fabrics from deep stash to make a quilt for a friend today, but keep getting distracted by pretty things long forgotten. If only all those things in our brains would just get made while we slept, hey? #firstworldproblems

Tamarack, round 2. (I have been making other things, but none as fun as this!) #tamarackjacket #grainlinestudio

Stuck home with a case of vertigo today (gah!) - so making use of the daylight and kind husband to take a pic of my @grainlinestudio #tamarackjacket. Have worn this 4 days straight, it could be my favourite make ever. (Cropped by about 20cm with no pocket. Cotton outer, wool inner and pretty cotton + steel/rifle paper rayon for the lining).

Boring action shot alert! Stitching down the binding on my Grainline #tamarackjacket. It's been so cold here, I can't wait to put this warm, quilty thing on and not take it off again until summer.

Making six squillion metres* of bias tape and binding some seams this holiday Monday. (*slight exaggeration). #theforeman #merchantandmills

After school play in the shop tonight for the 9 year olds. They still can't resist the lure of boxes. πŸ‘Œ
