pattern shop and check out one of the many mug rug patterns. They are quick and easy to put together and what is even better ...... you already have all the necessary fabrics to hand because many of them use scraps. You might even find yourself unwinding with the whir of the sewing machine and the rhythm of the stitches.
Which brings me nicely onto a future series I will be starting in 2013 - Sew I See - it will be a chatty series discussing the way we use sewing to help us cope in our oh-so-busy lives. So please come back and join me for a chat - we can share experiences and make friends over some philosophical fabric fun.
And whilst you visit in 2013 you can check on the monthly Stitchthrift hints for saving money on stitching supplies. Of course there will be the usual additions to the Patchsmith Pattern shop - particularly as spring will be approaching with its abundance of brightness, colour and warmth. And the Across the Pond sew-along will continue to grow and expand whilst having fun on both sides of the Atlantic - with some great FREE patterns from various designers on the web.
I will be rejigging the blog layout slightly so that all this information will be easy to find. Sew until then I just wanted to say to each and every one of you .......
