Where did my week go? I got a bit of Storm and Lightning written, but the time just seemed to evaporate. Ah well. I think I’ve probably needed a more restful spell to get on with other things after all the UK Meet/Hot Floor release stuff I was busy with over September.
I’ve continued sorting the house out, and now have a lovely sewing area all tidied and organised. I know now that unless I make my craft things really accessible to use when the urge hits me, I just don’t ever get on with doing stuff. I’m now working through the basket of almost-finished projects and reducing that before I launch into serious dressmaking mode. It’s the only option, as I just can’t find any clothes I like in the shops these days!
I mentioned next door’s leylandii trees last week, which had grown to colossal proportions and were blocking all the afternoon sunlight from the back of the house. They’re coming down right now! Already, my garden looks so much lighter and bigger. I think the fact I asked them to remove the yew tree from the end of my garden too makes a real difference. Now I’m excited to get on with planning that end flowerbed
I’ll be writing more Storm and Lightning (target 12k, which should bring me very near the finish). I’ve also got a few UK Meet things to be getting on with, and most importantly of all, Daisy’s 7th Birthday Party to plan for Saturday. I’ve already sorted the party bags and her presents. Just food, cake and decorations to do now. Oh, and thinking of games to entertain a group of eight girls :-/
I’ll be blogging over at Cole’s tomorrow, talking about gauge swatches (or tension squares to the Brits). Hope to see some of you there
What are the rest of you up to this week?
