We interrupt this service

Hi everyone! How is life treating you? Well, I hope. I'm writing today with advanced notice that it is likely that this little corner of the internet will become quieter over the next few months as I just don't have the time to keep up at the moment. The reasons are a mix of normality and potentially exciting opportunities. 


Starting with normality, we've entered the busiest three months at work and I've got some stretching targets for this year. I'm not complaining - I've been pushing for a couple of projects and I've finally been given them. Hooray! The potentially exciting part is that Adam and I are trying to buy a house! We came home from holiday to the news that our flat was to be sold and it seemed only logical for us to attempt to get onto the property ladder. We're moving along rather quickly, according to my colleagues who have been through the process, and many of my evenings and weekends are currently taken up with paperwork and clearing out the flat. We're aiming to complete sometime between mid-November and mid-December but we'll have to see how that goes.  I know there are no guarantees until completion but the fact there's no chain is a huge advantage. I'm trying not to get too carried away in case something goes wrong but it's a pretty exciting time! Especially when I think of the dedicated sewing storage space I might get...

I really hope that it won't be too quiet here until we complete - I'm still snatching short periods of time to sew and have some makes waiting patiently to be shared. They will be up as soon as I find the space to get photos and write the posts. In the meantime, I'll have to get my sewing fix through you guys and ask that you keep everything crossed for a smooth ride as we purchase the house. 


  1. Oh wow! that all sounds so exciting! Fingers crossed for the normality and the potential new home!

  2. wow - really exciting! good luck with work (although you won't need it) and the house (in my experience you probably will!)

  3. Exciting times! I look forward to hearing how you get on with things!

  4. Best of luck, Claire! Here's hoping you have exciting news for us when you're back to blogging. :)

  5. How exciting! Good luck, hope you're able to fit in a little bit of sewing still.

  6. Ooo! What exciting news! I will be thinking lots of good thoughts for you, and I hope everything goes well.

  7. Sounds like good times ahead. Good luck with the house :)

  8. Hills of luck to you, Claire! You're a speedy woman. Fingers crossed and fists up for you! Hope to hear from you soon.
    Merry holidays!!
    Dianne or just Di
