I had been meaning to write this since my last post (which I can't believe was a week ago) but life has as normal got in the way. I can see it doing that more often when I return to work for a third day each week at the start of May.
So here is what I have been making recently
passport covers one is in use by me and the other is destined for a birthday present (but not entirely sure who to send it to yet)
I have also made four curtains for R work but have not yet had a chance to see them in action so no photos. I thought about it but they just looked like a pile of black fabric so through no point. I still have two more to do but my darling sewing machine has thrown a fit (probably because it didn't get a trip to NZ) and won't sew properly. I am working on it.
In the meantime I have been baking
Apple Flan - not as good as it looks so that recipe has been consigned to the bin
Lastly I made some deodorant. "WHAT?" I hear you shout, not exactly my thing but I figured why not while we are watching the pennies why not try to make the stuff I usually buy (I might try soap next). No photos of this as it is not very photogenic, and it has gone completly solid and I am using a chisel to get it out each morning. I really like it though. I got the recipe from here and I can say that I have had no problems with white marks on my black clothes, no smell (although it doesn't stop you sweating) and I have even used it immediatly after shaving (not something I usually do with commercial products).
So I have been doing things just not sat at my sewing machine. I will remedy that shortly. Jot is currently asleep and I am going to trace out some patterns now so I can get sewing once I have fixed my machine.
Have a good week
