OK ... so ... no worries ... all afternoon to stitch in front of some of my favourite 80's television programs (have discovered "Knight Rider" and "The A Team" on new digital channel! Tee! Hee! Hee!) and the whole night in front of yet more fave viewing ... "Escape To The Country" and "60 Minute Makeover". Are you guessing where I'm heading with my story?? My Beloved Geek Boy finally made it home from work at about 6:15pm and immediately asked how I felt about taking a ride in the country. Huh?!?!? It seems he'd received a call from his parents whose car had broken down an hour and a half from home and needed a tow. SIGH! No stitching ... helped mount the rescue effort and since the return trip had to be done at 50km/hour it was a LOOOOOOOOONG night! We finally tumbled into bed just after 2am! Who said it was KIDS who cause your headaches as you get older?!?! Tee! Hee! Hee!
So ... today the ol' concentration hasn't been what it should be when attempting to write instructions ... that make sense!! ... so I've been procrastinating, but in a productive way. Three more tea wallets finished to add to the Christmas basket ...
A couple are earmarked for specific recipients and the other is a 'just in case' giftie that I usually try to have on hand around Christmas to add to other gifties or to reciprocate unexpected gifties. Now, I can't show you the other stitching I've been working on ... YET! But, do you remember these delicious fabrics I bought from Marion a little while ago?
They're from the latest "Pure" range and I've come up with a new pattern design using them and I am SOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED about it!!! I'm loving how it's coming up ... the more I stitch, the happier I am with it! I know, I'm a meanie teasing you with how happy I am with it and then telling you I'm not gonna show you ... yet ... but I will share a sneaky peek with you to make up for it ... ready??
Yep ... to quote a favourite childhood TV show ... "There's a bear in there ..."! :0) Do you love that pretty blue fabric with white hearts and daisies as much as I do?? I think it's my absolute FAVE of this range ... I wish they'd done it in LOTS of colours! :0)
OK ... so that's what I've been up to as I put off finishing the sample and instructions for the project I'll be teaching next weekend at the Creative Craft Retreat. Yes ... I am a BAD girl ... but it's been FUN! :0) And it's not as if I've WASTED the time ... right?! SIGH! OK ... I promise to be good tomorrow and get back to what I SHOULD be doing. Hope you're all having a lovely weekend, whether you're following through your planned itinerary, or like me, procrastinating and puddling your way through the weekend! :0) Don't forget OPAMer's ... it's the end of the month tomorrow, so make sure you update your sidebar finishes lists and email Peg or me with the number of finishes you've had this month. Ooh ... and watch out for faeries, cos October 31st is one of their travelling days! :0) Til next time ...
