Feeling Guilty

Forgive me dear bloggers, for I have neglected to post for two weeks now.  I have given myself over to the pleasures of sewing bags, embroidering sheep, quilting crowns, playing with clay and stamps and sneezing over lavender bags.  I have not thanked Jeyco at I’m liking it! for sending me the most fantastic stuff via the One cool thing / One strange thing swap initiated by TJ at the Perfect Nose.  I didn’t send out my parcel to the fabulous (and to me, slightly intimidating) Oonaballoona until this Monday.  Forgive me, for I have been distracted.

For my penance I promise to refocus.  I will make a proper start on the pj’s for Karen’s Pyjama Party (only one and a bit weeks left).  Has anyone seen the fab board she has put together on Pinterest??  I will photograph the lovely fabrics sent by Jeyco and maybe propose what will become of them.  I will show you what daughter no 2 and I have been working on. Yes, a bit of pattern cutting has made its way onto the table over the Easter Hols.  Just a bit.  And I will get making the bra I have promised to make for the past year!  There is also a little pile of lovely stretch lace on the corner of my sewing table – inspired by Mary Portas’ Bottom Line, I bought some goodies from Gypsy Lace in Derby – online only.

Like I needed to buy any more fabric???  *sigh*

I love fabric, and sewing. And I could do nothing else but sew, all day, every day, if I could!

  1. I love the sheep cushions. They are so cute!

    I misunderstood and thought you and I were paired for swapping! But I’m glad to know you’ve got my stuff 🙂

    1. And lovely stuff it is too!! Daughter no 2 has her eye on the mad print, and I love the Liberty stuff and the green gingham silk is FABULOUS!! I’m going to give those patterns a try too. I will post it sometime this week, promise! 😀

  2. oh my goodness. i intimidate you? mais non! have a shot of something delicious and know that i will rip into your package with joy!!!

    like jeyco i misunderstood too, i thought the person i was sending to was my partner, this makes it even more of a surprise :)!

    1. Your stuff is so colourful and “out there”! I’m pretty tame in comparison! 😀 I do hope you like what you’re getting.. :s

      1. WWAAAAAAAAOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!

        i’ll do a proper post soon but i just wanted to say thank you thank you thank you… i’m off to tear into some fabric!

      2. YAY!! So glad it’s finally there, and so glad you like it!! 😀 Have fun tearing into it all!!

  3. Hi Anne W,
    Oh how funny! I too was confused about the swap. I thought we were doing it in pairs too. I only realized that this wasn’t the case when I read your post! Tee hee! No worries though- this makes it more fun and adds an element of surprise to the whole thing. Don’t worry about feeling guilty. It takes some time to take decent pictures and write a good post about it. Look forward to seeing your score!
