The normal where I spent my evenings hand sewing, and my days not working I'd do some basic housework and then get the sewing machine out for a few hours.
Before the lockdown was announced I was on a conference call (by phone - how the world has changed!) and I made a list of all the projects I could potentially finish.
How many of them have I finished?
How many of them have I actually even touched?
Did I do any sewing at all?
Yes, but my focus changed. I didn't have the concentration span for working out what pieces went where - what colour went with what, how to do the quilting. The list is endless.
I joined up a fair few scraps, to make other pieces of fabric.
Then made them into pouches. I also did a virtual retreat with Threadhouse where I learned to add tendrils, so added those to a pouch
I took part in a 'Random act of kindness' on Instagram so I made lots of little things, small enough to go in a standard envelope. To be honest, it’s about all I could manage.
In Mid March, I managed to get to Merseymade and had enough room to almost finish my Mystery Quilt.
