KCWC ended on Sunday, but it took me a while to get these last few photos…
The last piece I worked on during kcwc was this Oliver + S ice cream top. I must admit that my sewing got a little side-tracked this week-end by the raised vegetable bed that was put into position. It needed filling of course, and then there was the planning of where to put the vegetables and which ones should go into the bed as opposed to being grown in pots…
Needless to say, while I was busy getting soil totally embedded beneath my finger nails, sewing was not at the forefront of my mind! However, as the purpose of kcwc was just to set aside 1 hour a day for a week, I think I can still say I fulfilled that goal. I just didn’t exceed 1 hour a day for the last 3 days!
Both fabrics are from the ‘Outfoxed’ collection by Lizzy House. Come on now, little wee hedgehogs…how could I not sew somethings with that?!

And as a wrap up to the spring 2012 edition of kcwc, this past week I learnt the following:
- sewing with a 2½ year old on my lap can be done quite successfully
- making a button hole really isn’t that difficult (I really love my sewing machine!)
- sewing is best accomplished while the babe is sleeping…whether on the sheepskin or in a sling makes no difference
- I sew clothes for my children as much for myself as I do for them. It is incredibly therapeutic to create.
