What I've Been Up to In Quarantine | Sewing, Gardening and More

Saturday, August 29, 2020


It has been almost six months. 

Six months since my world was turned upside down, I say "mine" because for some of you quarantine started in January or February, and for others, it wasn't until April or later.

These past six months have been eventful (good and bad), filled with anxiety, confusion, and stress. 

As of mid-August, my province is mostly opened up, everything is slowly going back to "normal" and I'll be starting school once again in a couple of weeks (online) so life is feeling semi-normal again.

But before I started school again, I wanted to share a post of what I had done during this quarantine period, like a journal of sorts.

During this period of #stayhome, I did more than I've done (craft-wise) in the last three years and so I thought to share what I did during quarantine (mid-March to early July). From gardening to sewing to procrastination and more!

Sewing My Birthday Skirt & Going to a Lavender Field

Sewing A Birthday Skirt | visiting a lavender field by Plaid and Sugar blog

Happy August to all!  July has come and gone and now I'm a year older. 

Last month I decided to sew myself a birthday dress to commemorate my 21st birthday over a week ago and let me tell you, there was such a big hiccup that it ended up becoming a skirt! 

And since last week I finally had the opportunity to go to a lavender field (so so beautiful and calm) I had had the "photoshoot" for the skirt there.  

Although the dress did not go as planned I love the skirt. It's one of my favorite colors and I learned how to use a hemming sewing foot that made my life so much easier!
