Today I’ve been at home after two days at work. I rather foolishly thought that I’d be able to get some sewing done today, but have had so much other stuff that needed doing that it hasn’t happened. I keep looking wistfully at my fabric though. Roll on the weekend sewathon!
My husband is away skiing this weekend and I’m holding the fort at home with the teenagers. As none of them want to be seen dead with me and they are either out or locked away in their bedrooms I figure as long as home is under control I can give myself a sewing weekend.
I’m horribly behind in the Stitch Tease bee – mainly because the blocks are big and scary and involve me having to do creative things, so I’ve put them off and put them off and in a week or so I’ll actually be two blocks behind, so I really have to get my skates on. I don’t like being late. It’s really not in my nature.
So this weekend, come hell or high water, I’m going to have my nose to the grindstone and progress will be made. There are actually still three blocks to do – but I’d be really happy if I could get one done and one started. Two done would be brilliant. I think it might be more or less possible. I’m going to try anyway.
A little sewing stress would provide welcome relief. Going back to work has been nice (all two days of it), but shall we say that there is a lot that needs to be done and quite a lot of it is in areas that aren’t my strengths (can you hear me screaming in the ladies!). Sewing is always good mulling things over time, so I could well kill two birds with one stone!
Watch this space – I’ll be posting regular updates at the weekend, although as all the sewing is secret for the moment, they could be a little cryptic!
