The Road Taken ~ Photo Challenge 

There couldn’t be a more ordinary commute than the route I walk to work each day. I pass houses, car forecourts and small businesses, and most days I inhale the morning air but observe nothing of note. 

This photo was taken one morning when the sky decided to do something just a little unusual.and breathtaking. My road taken is a road I choose to take almost every day, and here’s an example of why.

New up on the blog today ~ it's the summer so I've been sewing! Could it be the perfect pattern for autumn/winter? Link in profile 🔗

@sewoveritlondon #heather #heatherdress #knits #sewingwithknits #jersey #autumn #winter #winterwardrobe #cosy Today I ran my third half marathon, in the glorious August sunshine. It was a warm one, but fairly flat, and a lovely way to spend a few hours on a Sunday.

#homegrown #tomatoes #fresh #eatfresh #5aday #runners4runners #runnerbeans #green #vegetables #eattherainbow #Heatherdress #2 is now in progress. Hard to tell from the photo, but it's a lilac-grey jersey I've had in my stash for a while, possibly from last year's #sewupnorth ? I'm planning on the 3/4 sleeve option, and adding 3 inches to the length rather than the 4 I added to version 1. This fabric is a lot less beach than the other, so I'm interested to compare + contrast the two. I'm thinking this one will be more casual, although my stitching needs to be neater as it will be in plain sight on this one 😬 .

@sewoverit #sewingwithknits #memade #autumn #sewingtheseasons #cosy #lilac #sweatshirt #dressmaking My first @sewoveritlondon #heatherdress is all cut out and underway. I've added a couple of inches to the length, hoping this turns out to be a colourful dress for late summer/autumn. If it were finished I'd be wearing it today - it's torrential! ☔️ Fabric bought on my last trip to @fabworksmillshop .
