Where I find myself now……

Hi ,

Sorry I have been absent for a while . I am still sewing and there are lots of things to share but I need to let you know that my life has changed drastically.

In Dec 2020 I injured my knee and it would not support me .
In January 2021 I had a fall whilst building a bed that shattered my shoulder so I had a reverse shoulder replacement.

Then in June 2022 I had an ACL reconstruction. Lots to deal with that have made blogging way down on the list of priorities.

In August 2022 I was diagnosed with ALS a form of Motor Neurone Disease . I have been told I have the slow onset type but it still affects my legs . So I can’t take a picture of myself any more I can’t move fast enough.

I have made lots of things over the past few years but I will just put up what I have pictures of .

This is the latest make , I finished this top a few weeks back.

This top is a very comfortable style a little fiddly as I made it in silk chiffon from The sewing Basket shop at Newington. French seams throughout . I added elastic to the sleeve edge .

The pattern is M 7760

I will definitely make it again it is easy to wear.

The pants are a pleated black satin knit I made using the Tessuti Robbie pant pattern but added elastic stitched at the waist . This was the first outing for these pants as I had made them in 2020 but didn’t wear them . They work well for me now as I get around in a wheelchair often they are easy on and very comfortable.

I hope you are enjoying your life and making the most of every day. That’s what I am trying to do. Every day is the best I can be so I need to make the most of everyday.

Take care,

Happy Sewing 😊

    I’m so sorry, you certainly have had more than your fair share the past 2 years. Don’t feel you have to model your makes, I know I enjoy just seeing the finished items. I’m very happy to see your beautiful face, it’s been too long.

    So many beautiful clothes on this blog. Despite your medical challenges you are still so positive. I have retired now and am kept very busy with my many sewing, gardening and art interests. Perhaps we can meet up soon.
