UFOs and 2019

The second half of my 2018 was taken up with many sewing and creative projects for community groups hence not much blogging!  A brief inventory includes: vicar's collar; card horse head mask and horse blanket; pretend ferret in bag (this was fun! basically I made a sausage shape out of polar fleece fabric stuffed with some rice so that he weighed the same as an average ferret!); prize rosette; WW1 nurse apron; 2 x cook's aprons and caps; early 20thC Royal Mail badges; not to mention co-ordinating all the costumes for a large ensemble cast.  Plus there were some more (vaguely) medieval sewing projects which involved additions to existing basic tabards and dresses:

I was happy to donate bags of costumes and vintage garments to two local charity shops for their vintage and Victorian sectioins.

I also started getting back into creative writing and attended a fab local WEA course.

So for 2019, maybe a bit less sewing, but finish all UFOs and keep writing!

Wishing everyone a happy 2019.
