661 - Last Look Back May

I sort of went from not doing any Smashbooking for ages, do doing like 5 pages in one day. I had a whole load of stuff saved up so I decided to clear my stash and get some pages made. For the last page I used a prompt from the Smash Book Challenge I've been working my way through, which you can read more about here!

660 - Smashbook supplies

So as I got a little birthday money this year, I decided to treat myself to a little more Smashbook stuff. I end up using the same stuff quite a lot, so I thought a mixture of stuff would be awesome. I got all my stuff from Crafts U Love, so check it out.

I bought the grab bags because I thought they would add a little variety to my Smashbook, but some of the items are just like...okay. Like the dice. Don't think I'll be sticking those in any time soon, but most of the stuff is mega cute. Can't wait to get using it.

657 - Patchwork cushion

So last week I tried to make my t-shirt quilt and then got the fear. It seemed like too many steps and I was worried I would ruin my t-shirts, so I decided to have a go at something more low-key. I had a pack of fabric squares I got free in Sew magazine, and after finding the right issue (which is no easy task in my massive pile) I settled on making a large patchwork cushion. Mainly because it used all the fabric in the pack, but also because a cushion was something that I wouldn't mind in the house, as opposed to another pin cushion or a plush elephant.

I think this is the longest I ever used my sewing machine, and I only made one mistake (sewing two bits of fabric the wrong sides together) and I managed to fix that quickly. I'm very impressed, because there was a lot of sewing involved.

The back was made by hemming two pieces of fabric that were a bit shorter than the cushion, and then sewing them on to the right side of the patchwork and flipping them round. I was impressed at how quickly it made a lovely envelope back for the cushion, which would be cool if I ever made one again. Though I just filled it with stuffing and not a cushion pad, so it's a bit lumpier than it should be.

And here it is on the bed, with an assortment of other squishy friends.

656 - Happy Birthday to Me



So today is my birthday and I turn 26. 26 is quite a scary age because I'm now officially closer to 30 than I am 20, but oh well.

So to celebrate my birthday I thought I would do 10 facts about the year that's just past and the year that's coming up.

  1. Last December I got engaged!
  2. By the time my next birthday comes around I'll be married!
  3. And I'll be Kim Morrison and not Kim Hutton anymore.
  4. This year I gave up competitive skating and moved over to reffing with Fierce Valley Roller Girls. It's scary as hell sometimes, but I totally love it. 
  5. And I've reffed two bouts so far this year, with my third (and first as a jam ref) coming up this week! 
  6. Even though I turned 25 with blonde hair, I soon went back to my more "natural" colour of straight out of the box red. 
  7. In the past year I've learnt to crochet. How exciting. 
  8. I added a new tattoo to my collection and finally got my rose tattoo for my Gran. 
  9. I'll have been at my job three years this August. Now that is scary.
  10. And basically, I've spent the whole month and a half listening to nothing but Paramore's new album. It's too good!
