So its been a while again huh? What can I say homeschooling has been taking up a lot of time and I didn't particularity feel like blogging.
I have been making things, mainly crocheting cute animals and i have made some play suits, a dress and a shirt but haven't gotten around to taking photos yet.
But today I had to bite the bullet and sew something corona related. EURGH! Now don't get me wrong I love the way that members of the sewing community have thrown themselves into making scrubs and face masks but I couldn't face it. In the beginning of lock down I was tagged in posts asking for scrubs and I just couldn't do it. Number one I didn't have the right fabrics or time and two I just didn't have the heart for it. In typical me style I had decided to deal with the pandemic by putting my hands over my ears and saying LALALALALALA very loudly.
To be completely honest this pandemic has messed with my mental health in ways I didn't think it would. I have spent years being told by family, friends and various medical professionals that my fear of germs and illness is a touch on the crazy side. And now its like "Oh yeah wash your hands forty million times a day and take a bath in dettol or your gonna die"
Luckily for me my boyfriend is very much of the relaxed variety and hes been doing a lot to calm me down.
At the start of lock down I toyed with the idea of making face masks and even made some but sent them to my sister and her husband because I thought they get a kick out of having ones fitting their personality [my sisters is harry potter and her husbands is guitars].
But the general consensus seemed to be that face masks didn't really do much and that wearing one could actually provide a perfect breeding ground for bacteria.
And now its like "oh yeah you have to wear a face mask at the shops or we'll fine you £100"
WELL THAT WAS AN ABOUT TURN OF EPIC PROPORTION !!!!!!!!!!!!!
So ive finally had to force myself to make something corona related.
So far I've made us two each. We chose our own fabrics and I was luckily enough to find a pattern that comes in different sizes so i could make them based off our measurements and hopefully that makes them fit better.
I chose Harry Potter and Penguins and I managed to find some manly fabrics for Johns. He's going to need a lot more face masks than we do because he goes to work everyday.
Little dude chose the same harry potter fabric as me and some stars. Technically he doesn't have to wear one as hes under 11 but I gave him the option and he said if I'm wearing one he'll wear one as well. Hes got a little tiny face so the different sizes were very useful.
He's actually pretty pleased with his and stated that he thinks he looks "cool" Pretty sure face masks are going to end up being the new fashion accessory. I've noticed places like asos are already trying to cash in on peoples fear.
Anyway in other news!
Im learning guitar and I bloody love it!!!! I've wanted to try and learn properly for ages and now seemed like as good time as any.
I'm still practising ukulele
I'm enjoying crochet and I've been watching a LOT of TV series. so far I've finished Roswell and Buffy the vampire slayer and I've started desperate housewives.
I've also finished two books "Eleanor oliphant is completely fine" and "this is going to hurt" I'd recommend both of them for "this is going to hurt" is about a junior doctor and it gives excellent insight into how the nhs works.
So yeah thats it.
I'd say I'll try not to leave it so long again but my momma taught me not to tell lies!!!!
