Sinking under!

Another week, another update! I'm sure that some of the tips on the Plum and June Blog Hop were:
a) Don't complain about how busy you are (well - tough, I'm going to!)
and b) Try to blog at regular intervals. Hopefully once a week counts as regular!

I did manage to finish one thing this week, my swap item in the Scrappy Swap. I was slightly intimidated by the talent of my partner so I sewed very, very carefully and am really quite pleased with the final results:

Scrappy Swap Boxed Pouch

I also found quite a funky local item which I hope she'll like.

This is however the only bit of sewing which I've managed this week, due to work and family stress. As a result, the to-do list is no shorter but the big day is getting closer!

Here is the to-do list, so I can remember what I need to work on:
  1. Commission cushions - I'm in the process of sorting the applique letters now, just got to bite the bullet and cut into that Essex Linen......
  2. Christmas presents - I'm thinking Infinity Scarves for every female member of the family, maybe some pouches for the boys if I can find appropriate fabric. The only person whose present I have put absolutely zero thought into so far is Hubs!!
  3. HST BOF Christmas table runners (using Blossom Heart Quilts' tutorials) for our mums. One block finished so far (in September!), five to go.

     4.Two Kindle covers for friends (including one made in a skeleton print!) 
     5. Something to take to the next LMQG meeting for show and tell, rather than being lame and just  taking my Kindle cover!
     6. This is a good one - go to my class with Aneela Hoey tomorrow! :D
Hmmm, that list is supposed to be much, much longer, but I can't remember what else should go on. Sort of defeats the purpose of the list!

T - 34 days until we head up North, best get a move on!!  (Can someone get me out of  Parent's Eve and VI form Open Eve so I can sew more?)

PS - someone remind me next year not to watch Children in Need, can't handle the emotion!
PPS - Is it wrong to find Tom Daley so attractive???
PPPS - The Doctor Who Christmas trailer looks so amazing - the only reason why I want Christmas here   NOW!


  1. Lol your post made me laugh! I'm in the same boat! Not enough sewing and soooo much to do!! Good luck with your to do list!

  2. Great project and I'm loving your PS/PPS/PPPS, lol :)

  3. A class with Aneela Hoey that sounds like fun! Look forward to hearing all about it.

  4. Hope you had a fab time with Aneela!! X

  5. Hi Sarah, we met at Aneela's class! Love your blog and so glad someone else has a to do list like mine!
