That was a slightly longer break than I intended.
My foot is all healed up now, thanks for your good wishes. I had a lovely mummy bandage for a while and then a very silly sandal thing.
I can now wear heels, and if I chose carefully you can't see the scar!
I have been knitting, but I'm most excited about this blouse I'm sewing:
I'm making a test item out of an old duvet cover, and I love the pleats at the back - which are referred to as "dart tucks".
I just have to set the sleeves in and make the button holes (and sew the buttons on). It's short sleeved, so I am not likely to wear it until the weather warms up, but I really wanted to check the fit of the blouse. Once I know it fits properly I'll make some proper ones up, with the long sleeves.
I'm starting a new job on Monday, another maternity cover job, and hopefully it will be less intense than the last one - it's closer so the travel time should be less.
So, how's everyone been while I've been away from blogland?
