Just like that

Just like that it's summer. Last week there was fresh snow on the hills around us, this afternoon the thermometer on our sheltered back porch tells me it's 30 degrees Celsius - and it feels like it.
We had ice blocks for afternoon tea and then a magic show - lego style

After the KCW sewing week there was the usual lull until yesterday I had a few moments of inspiration and covered the seat of an old chair recently acquired from a friend.

I've had a chair in progress for months for Georgie's art table , this took 20 mins - sewing and stapling to turn it into a cosmetically acceptable comfortable chair to kneel on.

Too easy - kicking myself for taking so long to getting around to it.

Now I have a big pile of knit fabric that arrived on my doorstep today.

In the midst of the sewing frenzy of Kids clothes week I did a bit of impulsive online fabric shopping and bought these 4 fabrics - inspired by the success of the stretch items I made that week. I have some vague plans for these . I thought I might try a lightweight Bimaa top with a cowl neck. I had planned to make one in sweatshirt weight fabric and actually thought the teal green fabric would be thicker than it is but I think the Bimaa will work in t shirt weight.
