We are at the tail end of July and I’ve been meaning to finish my post in time for Allie J’s Social Sew for July! But life and work has taken over and I hadn’t been able to find time to post this earlier than I would have liked.
We didn’t used to frequent Gardens By The Bay until our discovery of the Children’s Garden. In fact, we were really quite impressed with the Children’s Garden and all that it offers. It is a great place for kids, if I say so myself, and my little bub certainly enjoys himself every single time we are there. He loves the water play area the most, especially so on warmer days.
The saying is true – time flies when you are having fun. This will be the last instalment of this 7 part mini-series which I hope have being interesting and a ball of fun to read. If you have missed out the first 6 instalments, catch them here: Allie J, Sew Dixie Lou, Randomly Happy, Madalynne, House of Pinheiro, Ada Spragg.
Last month when The Monthly Stitch held it’s annual Indie Patter Month challenge, I jumped on the opportunity to try a new pattern and also to have some fun. I have been quite conservative in using commercial and indie patterns and have preferred to draft my own for I was afraid of fitting issues. I supposed all I needed was some motivation to start my engine rolling. So, I decided to jump into the deep end to challenge myself this Indie Pattern Month.
There is 1 thing I’ve learnt from Sophie of Ada Spragg and that is, quality sewing takes time. She has shown me in so many ways that a good sew cannot be rushed. And that is such a huge reminder to myself.
Sophie is also one who has impeccable style and wicked sewing skills, definitely one who has a wardrobe I’ll love to ransack someday (heh!). I’m always stalking her blog and getting so much inspiration out of it and I’m sure you would too, so I’m excited for her to be on this week’s mini-series where she shares more and gives us a tip or 2.
As a child I really liked to read. I particularly enjoyed Knid Blyton’s books and the Babysitter club’s series. I would often spend hours after that making believe and even attempted (embarrassingly) to write my own novel by the name of Petsitter club as I grew slightly older.
I’ve received so much encouragement on this mini-series, so I really want you to know I appreciate all your kind words and love!
I’m back with the 5th instalment and today I have Rachel of House of Pinheiro.
Anyone of you misses Me Made May like I do? I never thought I’ll miss it that much but that really gave me the shove in planning my wardrobe for most days in May. Now, I’m a lot less discipline and a lot more haphazard in choosing my daily outfits. Well.. well, definitely something I gotta do about!
