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.

  1. What is it that drives us to biting off more than we can chew? Sometimes the act of procrastintion is actually a good thing as it helps define what is actually important... Oh well, I am glad to hear you are finding the balance once more and enjoying the creative process again. The coat looks great as does the chair.
