Just quickly…

I’m still here! The past few weeks has been chaos- doctors, being ill (again!) and covering sickness at work.

Not fun! As it has meant this week being out of the house just after 7am and not being back til almost 7pm… Very little time to sew and play. Gutted missed most of the SMS giveaways but as my work day is spent on a computer I really couldn’t face it when got home.

However some quick finishes last week (feels like a month ago now!)

2013-12-08 19.21.44 2013-12-08 19.22.50A wabbit for my nephew and my secret santa gifts 🙂 I’ve also need to put the finishing touches on my Minerva Crafts Blogger Challenge before I reveal that to you hopefully life will calm down next week (but doubt it!).

What are you all up to?


Oh dear…. How many works in progress?

Ok.. I finally got round to clearing my desk to make room to a) play with fabrics or b) play with papercrafts i.e the new docrafts goody bag I picked up last week.

However to my dismay I found all these cut out and ready to be sewn.

The bag I remembered it has been on my to do list to finish for well… almost six weeks. It was supposed to be my treat for when I started my new job which was mid April.

However I’ve noticed a stupid mistake! One of the lining pieces I’ve cut out the wrong way. Hopefully I have enough material left do another. It might look ugly now! But it’s my first real bag I’m trying and it’s a fab 50s style pattern by Emma Brennan

Can you guess what the others are going to be? Yup- purses and a funky retroish phone cosy. Well I hope it will turn into a cosy totally my own pattern and playing with it at the moment. We will see……..

Hopefully I can finish these this week and then on to more projects! But what to try next………… I have so many fabrics it’s hard to decide.

How are your WIPS coming along?
