MONTHLY RUNDOWN – JULY

Hiya! I’m back back back again for a monthly rundown! This July has been a month of much-missed time with wonderful friends, and a good few G&Ts!

As I mentioned in my round up of June, I am definitely feeling the effect on having less time at home to get my make on, but am really trying to dedicate a few evenings a week to be creative and I’m starting to get into the swing of it – even if it is just to knit a couple of squares for my wonky ‘quarantine quilt’ (a story for another day).

As always, I’ve discovered more wonderfully talented makers this month, and can’t wait to share them with you, so let’s get going!

WHAT I’M BUYING

So I mentioned these earlier, but not sorry, they’re just that good! I bought some pink and red mushroom friends to pop in my plant pots and am so happy with them. I love seeing their cheeky lil faces peeping through the leaves!

WHAT I’M WEARING

I’ve been really feeling my little pink rainbow T from Emma Warren this month – it looks so good with dungas!

WHAT I’M MAKING

My fabric scraps are really getting out of hand at this point, so I decided to start a new project (yep another one) …
I basically just began to stitch squares together into strips, in the hope that at some point they will become some sort of quilt! I like the idea of a project that I can just keep putting down and coming back to and I also really like the fact that it is going to be incredibly ugly!

Thanks for reading, come back next Friday for a fabby Creative Q&A!
