This Week…

This week has been very busy!

Very exciting! I have taken on tutoring some more A Level students in preparation for their exams in June.

My Mom and I went to the Sewing for Pleasure and Hobbycrafts show at the NEC. It was so much fun and we got lots of goodies! We are both feeling inspired about finishing old projects and starting brand new ones! Here are some of the new Burda patterns we purchased:

It has been snowing like crazy here the last few day! We have never had snow this late in March and it isn’t showing signs of disappearing anytime soon!
