The week that was

A few weeks ago I had a full week off with no plans but that of my own devising. Bliss! The weather was beautiful all week but one day. So how much sewing do you think I got done?

Yep never enough. Although a sewing related project took over so I was happy enough.

Since getting another room decorated in our house I was able to move some furniture around to leave more space in my sewing room. So I treated myself in IKEA to a new cutting table. So first I had to paint it and build it. That took up most of Monday!

All tidy with scraps sorted my size and colour in these little drawers and bigger pieces in the cupboard in shoeboxes.

This is now what my husband refers to as "Goods In".

The room all completed and tidy for about the next 5 minutes! I should be much more productive now.

Obviously no week off is complete without a trip to the fabric shop. This is my stash that I got from the local sewing shop to make myself some clothes. More to follow on that soon. It makes a pretty stack I think.

I just can't wait to get started on that lot, but have a few gifts and orders to finish first. Why does the project list never go down no matter how much you tick off?!
