I missed the last Handmade Monday post due to an episode of dizziness. I was recently diagnosed with something called Migraine Associated Vertigo. As a result I am trailing different mediation and I am on a strict diet (including no alcohol or chocolate!!) to try and control my symptoms. It was so frustrating to wake up last Sunday with the world spinning. I had planned on finishing my mystery project so I could share it with you, so I had to keep you guessing another week instead!
Here’s my finished project
A make up bag! Thank you to everyone that commented on my last past, a lot of you had guessed right! I did some freehand machine embroidery to make out the definition of the items and I lined it with wipe clean fabric to make it practical to use.
I have had an influx of custom orders too over the last 2 weeks, so I have been busy working on those. It’s lovely to get a brief then let you imagination run wild with fabric and design ideas! I will share the photos next week once everyone has received them!
So it’s over to handmade harbour again, looking forward to seeing what you have all been up to. I just also want to quickly mention another blog which I think you should all go and read – Span’s Studio. Hannah also suffers from MAV but her symptoms are so much worse than mine, limiting her day to day and also her crafting. I feel truly inspired as to the things she is able to do despite her symptoms.
