The weather this summer has been amazing but it’s made me realise my wardrobe is not cut out for this heat. So I decided to customise a few things to suit the weather… cutting down jeans, cutting sleeves off shirts, that sort of thing. However I’m not confident enough to wear a crop top, so with a bit of careful cutting and knotting, I made this perfect little breezy top!
Really excited to be sharing one of the lovely shots I did for a recent photoshoot for Tigerlily Makes new range of ‘Vegan Friendly” felt making kits. I wasn’t sure how I was going to style this cute little needle case and then it just came to life when it was on set!
This time last week was one of the hottest days since records begun and guess what I was shooting that day?!
I’m working from home today and when I do I love to start the day with a cooked breakfast. It could be poached eggs, dippy egg or even a fried egg sandwich, even I don’t know yet!
Homemade Salsa and tortilla chips…. easy win!
Pretty Summer Chicken Salad Recipe… love the colours! Looks light and refreshing! I may not eat meat but I can appreiciate how pretty it can look in food photography.
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 😀
I’m loving how our Summer has started this year and seems there is no signs of it cooling down anytime soon! Just an excuse to eat more ice cream!
Just because it’s a vegetarian breakfast doesn’t mean it has to be a boring breakfast… I’ve such a weakness for pastries in the morning! Enjoy a MEAT FREE MONDAY!
It’s an exciting day today as I have a meeting with Mr X Stitch to discuss the brief for issue 5 of XStitch Mag… Heroes and Villains. Which prompted me to share this cute little cross stitch Bonsai by PixlStitch from issue 4 for this weeks NON FOOD FRIDAY!
