Sunday Sitrep

Sunday already! 
 
My goodness this week has flown by!  is it just me?
 
I wanted to get a lot done, no, I NEEDED to get a lot done!
 
first up, Pea Room BOM Block
 
 
 
and then there was the round robin to get to Lynz for the Ab Fab Free Bees
 
 
and of course the Brit Bee Blocks for the lovely Katy
 
 
and a small matter of a framed purse for a birthday gift, 
 
 
I haven't finished quilting the Best of British just yet, but it's close

 
 
my time seems to be on everyone else's agenda at the moment, and I'm a little sluggish getting going in the mornings ... I need to change that situation ...
 
though the annual school shop for shoes (urghhh!) and uniform is done!
And this year the Teenage Diva actually lost the will to live long before I did!
 
Plan for the coming week ...
 
finish quilting Best of British
 
turn this pile of loveliness into a Brit Quilt Swap quilt for my partner
 
load up a customer quilt and get it movin'
 
I think, being as I already have a day sewing planned with Di that is enough to keep me out of too much trouble, don't you think?
 
And then there is the small matter of himself that has other ideas, and Mum's Taxi duties!

(I continue to do battle with Blogger loading my pics, and my laptop that is slowly dying)

That is quite a list. I'm glad that I am on it! I hate the whole school shoe shopping bit. I am reduced to online shoe shopping as the choice for big size 12s is very limited - normally the choice of one! See you Tuesday. Di x

Lots of lovely projects going on there. I love the birthday purse. Hope you have a fabulous day with Di

All sounds mighty productive to me!

Life is just flying by for me right now! Still tomorrow is a day off - bonus! You have indeed been suitably busy though, and thanks for the blocks :o) Enjoy your day with Di!

Your list to do is scary long. Hope you start chipping away at it. Enjoy the bank holiday - don't work yourself to the bone!!

Cindy said...

You and I are kind of in the same spot. Lots of stitching to be done for others. Still, you (hopefully) get a great sense of accomplishment out of it! I'm hoping to give my bee block a trial run, then cut everything for the bee ladies tonight. Fingers crossed they're packed and ready to go before bed!

I love the purse! Can't wait to see what you're making for BQS but you've got a scary to do list!!
P.S. Mornings are over-rated!

Love the purse. Is it a fortune cookie one?

Leanne said...

You sure got a lot done over the weekend, and all lovely. I really like that stack of solids.

Sounds like you're back to your normal productive self. Hope this week's going well too.
