Our school went back on Monday so although I had been kept busy over the holidays I started to get back to normal (sewing wise) this week. It is surprising how quickly I have become used to an extra hour in bed, my 6 o'clock alarm has been a real pain this week, but routine is like a favourite old jumper, good to get back to.
Over the Christmas break I have allowed myself some time to get on with some of my own sewing both works in progress and some long awaited projects I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed them and have promised myself to try and make time for more handwork in particular.
This is a foxy pocket I have been working at for the last few nights ( around 10 hours in total) for one little fox. I wanted to create texture and a raised effect to the foxes fur I think I used a whole skein of the red brown cotton but am pleased with how it turned out, now all I have to do is whip up the rest of the trousers hope they don't take 10 hours.
