I really have not been particularly attentative lately, been far too busy working and tidying and cleaning up our home with the view to putting it on the market. Stressful having to do all the paper work and having a proper spring clean and throw out to pretend that we live clutter free which is not the case! Amazing how when you are selling your home you almost have to create an illusion of not living in your home!
It was a good opportunity for me to sort out all my fabric bits in the loft where I have an old Victorian wooden chest full to the brim of fabrics and where I normally do my sewing in the Spring and Summer. It was really rewarding to give a lot away to charity shops too hoping that they will find happy homes to be recycled in.
It was also good fun finding things that I have made and have forgotten about in amongst my sewing bits and bobs.
I am quite keen to sew a few African fabric skirts this Spring, my wonderful mum packaged some beautiful navy African fabrics over to me which I received the other day. Will show you when they are made, I will have to jog my memory on how to insert a zip again.
I am actually enjoying having a rather neat and tidy home, not that we are very untidy normally, but we do live in our home it certainly ain't a museum!
I am feeling a bit nostalgic about potentially leaving our terraced Victorian home, with all it's beautiful character and original features...but am very excited about the 1930's home that we are hoping to purchase. We'll see what happens and no doubt I will log our progress here.
Hope you are well and enjoying the longer and lighter northern hemisphere days and maybe doing a little bit of spring cleaning yourself?
See you all soon
