I must be the slowest (I was going to write sewer, but that just didn’t sound… right ) seamstress on earth. It took me one whole morning to complete a strawberry! And I’ve been slaving away at a donut all evening today… Phew.
Yes, you guessed it, December in August. And at the rate I’m going, it’s a good thing I’m starting early this year, or I’ll never ever get those December presents ready in time! We’re planning on gifting the little ones a play kitchen (which still *ahem* has to be built as well, unless we decide to be lazy cowards and get the IKEA one), and while I’ve been squirreling away various objects over the course of this year (kitchen utensils, a cake stand, the sweetest porcelain polka dotted tea set), what has been sadly lacking so far is food. Which will be remedied in due time. One hopes.
I’m back to my stitching now, but I’ll leave you with a link to a VERY useful tutorial on making a neat blanket stitch, essential for slow sewers seamstresses.
