Well after my big week-end, today has been a quiet reclaiming of my space – yes there really was a desk under that pile and a floor under the other!!
Is it just me or does everyone get in a mess when ‘creating’?
While cleaning I was well aware of the fact that I need more room!!!!! ( don’t we all), when I came across a basket with things to do in it – you know the boring stuff that always gets bypassed….
I thought get in and do these and you’ll have another basket !! ( not rocket science is it!!!)
So I finished the top for my daughter – the one that had little shoulder pads that she didn’t want and after I cut them out she didnt really like the top anyway -(hence I lost interest) anyway who knows, it might be just right now but, one thing for sure, it won’t be in my room!! lol
Then I found a brand new pair of jeans that needed to be cut off to fit husband – so measured, cut, pinned and will zap them up tomorrow after I buy some cotton. I saw a tutorial recently where the person used the original hem – I don’t like that finish so instead, I will make a new hem, use the same sort of thread, rub it over with sandpaper and no-one will know the difference!!
Next was a top for me – silly thing had short sleeves with elastic in the hem – we all know how that looks on ‘Nanny’ arms – so ripped the elastic out and turned a little hem.
Then I spotted (how could I miss it) that ottaman that I am covering – stripes, piping etc and now it is all pinned and ready to finish – I read the other day that to do what I am trying was an impossible task :/ too late……..
I am making my little grandson a ‘Thomas’ playmat so that came out to have the next job done – work out the pockets for Thomas and his friends so they can travel safely….
Then I thought about starting something ‘new’ but that comfy chair called to me and I took my poor aching back over for a visit – needless to say, that was that and any creative juices I thought I had, quickly dried up!
I am hopeful of a sunny morning tomorrow – I need to do some quilting!
Until next time
