Pattern Haul

Hi everyone. Sorry it's been so long since my last post. I am still alive lol. I've just been so busy with work and other things I've been a bit time poor.

I haven't really done a lot of sewing either except for some wallets and a bag.

In all honesty I've been avoiding sewing clothing because I made a big decision this year. I decided to have weight loss surgery. Specifically the omega loop mini bypass. My weight got out of control and I ended up over 200 kilos. Not sure if I've mentioned it before but I also suffer from chronic leg ulcers and with the extra weight they became much worse. So I bit the bullet and booked in with the surgeon and had my surgery on the 1st of May this year (2017). So far things are going well. I did 4 weeks of optifast prior to my surgery and the day I started that I had already got down to 198.8kg which I am using as my official starting point. Since then I have lost 45.3kg so far. It hasn't been easy and I still have a long way to go so I won't be doing any sewing until my weight stabilises because I don't want to waste any of my pretty fabric 😜 lol.

So in the meantime I will be collecting "skinny" patterns and fabric and just stick to making bags and wallets and other goodies.

Anyhow onto more important things I wanted to share my pattern haul from spotlight yesterday 😊

Please excuse the cat bum in the second photo lol. That's but baby ranga Fred 😻

So excited to make all these pretties

  1. Best wishes on all your life changes…and I don’t think there’s a need to apologize for prioritizing your blog lower on your list. Thanks for sharing what is up with you though, so that we ( who peek in to see what you are up to) know that you aren’t abandoning your space. Keep up your good hard work!
