52 Weekends No.41 – Handmade note books

For my birthday a couple of weeks ago my Mum kindly bought me a sewing machine. I’ve never really done much sewing but I’m really keen to learn. Since I received it I’ve been gathering ideas and patterns on Pinterest, buying fabric from various shops and this weekend I felt ready to try it out.

I started by learning what all the bits on the machine do and practiced a couple of different stitches and learnt about thread tension. Then I was ready to start my first project, what was it going to be… the floppy summer hat? The house slippers, an apron, pin cushion, wall storage, summer dress, bunny doll? I’d collected so many ideas at this point I got a little over whelmed. I needed to real myself back in and write a list of projects in order and build up my confidence. That’s when my first project found me… a note book made of scrap paper. Maybe not the most obvious first sewing project but at least I now have a little note book to write down all my ideas, put them in order and work through them 😀

52 Weekends No.39 – Homemade hair mask

I had a bit of a hectic one this weekend, busy, busy, busy! So there was only one way to end it…with some serious relaxing! I made a deep conditioning hair mask. I mashed one banana and added 2 eggs, 1 tbsp coconut oil and 1 tbsp honey. Mixed it all up and applied it to clean wet hair. Wrapped up my hair in a plastic hair bag and a towel, then left it on for 20 mins. Just enough time to sit and relax with my book! This is how to turn a busy weekend into a calm one 😀
