Alas, the evil work elves took over a large chunk of my last week, but I did get a chance to write up the Advanced Bag Pattern for Sew Brit Bag Camp, all the camp supply lists and pattern pieces, write my QN 22 pattern, make a little something for Mother’s Day and go to an ice hockey game and the pub with some friends from work on Saturday night. Huh, that actually seems like quite a lot for a 55 odd hour work week!
Wow, the ice hockey was a serious trip down memory lane to my 16 year old exchange student self, sitting with my friends in a very cold and draughty SJHL rink in a tiny town in Saskatchewan, Canada, watching games 3 or 4 times a week throughout the winter for the princely sum of about $4 CDN a time. On Saturday night the Braehead Clan were playing the Belfast Giants, which led to a slight inner conflict as to who to support, but the city of my birth beat the city of my home 5-2, so you can decide who Jack and I plumped for in the end ;o)
Finishes This Week:
This spool has now become a Mother’s Day present (if you know what it now is please don’t say so in the comments, the recipient stalks me ;o) ) Bear for scale, he’s staying here…
In Progress This Week:
During a conference call last Thursday, when I was working from home, I pulled together some fabrics for the next few 6″ Moda Building Blocks which are sitting in a sad little pile in the corner of my cutting table, it wasn’t even worth taking a photo!
To Be Worked On This Week:
Finish writing up the Mainstream Bag Camp Pattern
Sew at least one of those Building Blocks, I need to just sew something for me before I lose my mind!
There’s more extra day job work on the horizon too :o/
Hope you all have a fabulous and productive week!
Oooh, I know what you've made mum – mum, I'm sure you'll love it, but if not you can recycle it to me!!
We had never watched an ice hockey game until we moved to Latvia, where it is almost a religion 🙂 It was a brilliant night out even although we had no idea of the rules!
Look forward to seeing the Mother's Day present reveal.
Love the blog and so glad to see the bears after a good time away. Looked at the weekend and decided that I am not up to it this year – next year who knows. Lovely to catch up with you again.
