I haven’t posted for a long long time – sorry to have disappeared. I didn’t really go away, just paused for a while and I am determined to change that. Community is just so important so I hope you will forgive me.
COVID-19 sucks and I hate what is happening around the world because of it. The news reports break my heart every day and I work hard not to let anxiety and worry take over.
We stay within our bubble (which is what we in NZ call those we are in isolation with), keep our distance from everyone else, though that also hurts our heart, and hold our precious ones close however we can.
So far we are all OK in our little patch of isolation in New Zealand. We are lucky enough to have a back garden, a long driveway and plenty of places to stroll to or run to or bike to. We have stable income for now and plenty of work and school to do during the week.
I also have stitching to help keep me sane and I am sewing again, though not masks (yet). I have again started making skinny pants, which I muslin’d with this wonderfully mad cotton lycra….
The crotch curve just aint right yet and I know what I have to do to fix it but I’m taking a wee rest from it and start something new. Possibly a Burda Style? Can’t quite decide.
