It’s that time of the year again when I have the crazy 5 am starts for the day job several mornings a week which always puts me a bit out of whack – either I’m super productive or, well, I’m not. This week I managed to multi-task on no end of conference calls and got my flat cleaned (hoovering aside, there’s a limit!) but on the flip side my sewing was not so prolific as the evenings, when I normally sew, were shot! Oh well, there’s always next month (yeah, 2 more weeks to go of this madness). My dad and I also finally fixed my roof at the weekend, so no more effing pigeons! Hope you all had a great week :o)
Finishes This Week:
One of my multi-tasking activities this week was reshuffling some of my bag making hardware after I picked up a few new bits recently. I originally had these sorts of bits in one of the colourful box sets on the right in the photo (there’s 2 sets stacked here), so when I saw the set on the left in B&Q I knew it would be perfect to store all the things. Then I saw another of the colourful box sets on sale and decided I needed to put all my Kam snaps in them divided by colour and size (I have a slight obsession with the B&Q tool storage section). You all sit and sort things armed with your Dymo label maker, right?
In Progress This Week:
Remember this pile from last week? I now have all the bits cut and the interfacing fused. It will be sewed together this weekend because it has to
I did get inspired for a couple of new quilts over the past couple of weeks, so I pulled the fabric out and did a rough sketch for each, so I’m good to go when I get spare time (ha!) I’ve had both these bundles for a couple of years so it seemed like their time had come.
I also cut the bits for Jo for the next Brit Bee block on the planner.
To Be Worked On This Week:
- Finish at least one of the bags
- Get the bee block done and posted
- Maybe cut the fabric piles above
Hope you all have a great week!
Oh you have been busy love your storage boxes and sorting kam snaps into colours is a bit ocd but can really understand why you did it can’t wait to see your bag’s are they new one’s you’ve designed xx
Is it any wonder you didn’t get any sewing done? Lol! I know I have OCD so I recognize it in others. Don’t you just love sorting and labeling? :^)
I suggest you put locks on that storage, or it’s coming home with me! ;0
I cannot wait to see what you make with your bag fixin’s!! Get a move on!
I do love sorting things out! And I also love the B&Q tool storage section…
