I spent a while hand sewing the hems on my brown dress until my eyes hurt. I think I'm going to get it finished tomorrow and be able to wear it a couple of times before it looks silly, being all autumnal and all.

The project as left me with a pile of quilting weight fabric scraps, though, and that's too good an opportunity to miss. I'm going to start collecting all the other scraps I end up with in future projects and make myself a patchwork blanket. I've gotten myself some templates and I'm liking the idea of making one made of squares and octagons.

My landlord thinks I'm getting old before my time...


  1. That's a good idea! I'm also saving my fabric scraps, but I don't know if I can commit to a real size quilt

    1. I'm thinking of doing it when I'm away from home, like at my Grandparents where my mum does crocheting.
