Well, tomorrow is finally the dreaded 'Return to Work'. Although I've been off for 2 years (and 2 months!) there probably hasn't been a day gone past when I haven't thought about my return to work. I will miss Joshua a lot while he's at his new private nursery, but I'll try to look on the bright side - going to the loo ALONE! Enjoying a full cup of tea while it's still HOT! And having some adult conversations with no INTERRUPTIONS!
I've kept myself busy the past few days, Joshua needed something to put his spare change of clothes in for keeping at nursery so of course I got creative!
May as well make it personalised eh?
I made up a simple drawstring bag with some of the fun children's IKEA fabric I bought recently -
Perfect size for a change of clothes -
I suppose I feel like there will be a little bit of me keeping an eye on him while he's at nursery :)
And not to feel left out, I decided that I should make myself a little pencil case so I've hand appliqued some cute flowers to a lovely grey fabric and I'm now in the process of hand quilting around them. I'll have too order some zips before I can actually sew it together though.
(Sorry, not a great photo) I haven't done much hand quilting so this is a little experiment and practice for me.
Needless to say - I won't have a lot of sewing time for the beginning of the week now but hopefully Thursdays and Fridays will allow me plenty of time to fit in all the sewing and crafty things I just have to make. Things may also be a bit quiet around my blog too, but don't worry, I'll be back soon showing off my crafty makes!
