Finished Objects: An advent calendar and a 2 week early surprise!

Hello hello!

Hope everyone is well. So I managed to finish the advent calendar I was working on for Mr HM and I before advent began (very chuffed).

Not much to report in terms of the manufacture. Its a pre-prepared fabric panel from Cotton Patch which you cut out and sew together. Probably only took me about an hour in total from start to finish.


I've been meaning to make a reusable advent panel for years and finally got round to it so I'm very happy with myself!

In other news... this happened ... 2 weeks earlier than expected! Baby Felix.


One of the reasons I'm so chuffed with making the advent calendar is because I made it up after he was born - and he slept through the noise of the machine beautifully (yay for more sewing time when he's sleeping - that is when he's sleeping better at night and therefore I don't need to join him in a nap when he sleeps in the day!) :-)

    1. Thanks! I'm hoping that means I may get some sewing in at some point whilst I'm off on mat leave!
