Catching up!

After my little outburst in the last post I am slowly catching up.

I finished my friends Birthday present:

It's a Blythe version of a real life 1960's chair that is her pride and joy. I sprayed a Bratz chair and made a little cushion for it.

We had a lovely time at Center Parcs, I took the girls along, this is what Mervin wore:

I cancelled my stall at the craft fair as I've got so stressed out about it and there is no way I would make enough stuff for 2 days of the fair.

I've made a great start on my Morticia Addams costume for the amateur dramatics christmas show. I've also managed to borrow a lot of stuff for my hubby to wear. We've added lots of extra rehearsals days so that will be fine.

I rearranged my work day before I had cancelled the craft fair, so now I can get on with my costume, Blythe commissions and get ready to go away next week.

I've made a good start on my Blythe commissions. Although last week I had a disaster. I had cut out and half sewn 3 coats. I finished the first one and found that I had added seam allowance onto the pattern that already had seam allowance (that's what I get for not labelling my patterns). So I threw them all away and started again.

Every cloud has a silver lining because I made a new pattern and it works a lot better than the last :D

So at last I've finished one commission!

And in true procrastination style I started my little applique project that I mentioned ages ago.

I started it yesterday before I cancelled the craft fair so should have been working my butt off making stuff to sell.....but no, I start a new project lol.

Can you guess what it is yet?

I'm hoping to start swimming again this week and maybe actually clean my house.

Can't get on Twitter!

It's playing up for me today! Noo!

So anyway.
I'm in a slump at the moment, I hate it when I get like this.
I'm a yes person. I just can't say no to things and then I get in a melt down like this.
I can't move, I just want to watch tv.
I need to finish my friends birthday present, 3 sets of Blythe commissions, make my costume for the Christmas show. Rehearse for the Christmas show, go away for the weekend for my friends 30th. Two hats to make for work, go away for 5 days to the Shetland Islands for my Aunts 50th wedding Anniversary, make a stalls worth of crafts to sell at a craft weekend, go to London for work, prepare my husbands costume for the christmas show, DO the christmas show.
I stupidly said I would go down to london for a few days in November to sell some costumes on Ebay for my boss but I'm going to have to let her down and do it in January.

So, on the 5th of December I am going to collapse. Well until the 7th when I go down to London to work again, followed by more work in Switzerland.

So I'm procrastinating.
