Projects of the week

This week, Sarah is getting cosy and making some comfortable patternless pyjamas – you’ll wear them all the time!

Zoe is sprucing up her home and having a go at making her own beanbag covers using a pattern from Simply Sewing Magazine.

One good thing

Zoe’s one good thing this week is a book recommendation! She’s been embracing nature and learning all about the science of trees by reading The Overstory by Richard Powers. It’s full of fascinating facts and she would highly recommend it.

Sarah has been spending a lot of time in nature on her daily walks. Getting outdoors at least once a day helps her to feel calmer and happier.
