One of those days
Here is the sum total of today's sewing - some little bags for party bags for Sarah's sleepover party on Saturday. We made them this afternoon after she got home from school - really quick drawstring bags, made from an old wrap I bought in a charity shop. We have filled them with a large handful of sweets (Celebrations, Quality Street) - too hard to think of anything else to give 9 & 10 year old girls, really.
Although I was home all day I didn't actually do any sewing - wasn't really in the mood, so I unpacked the shopping, cooked the Bolognese sauce for dinner, cleared out a number of bookcases, tidied up various things the kids had left lying about (this is a never-ending process in our house, though often I make them do it), read email, and finally got around to writing the words about my dad for the Celebration of Life which my stepmom is organising (more on that on my family blog). A busy day, and productive, but no sewing.
Anyway, here's a quilty picture - this is the baby quilt for Geoff's other co-worker, whose last day is tomorrow. I finished the binding on it last night (see - I'm not always last minute about these things!) and it's ready to go in to work with him tomorrow. Still have another one to finish for my own friend, and then I really ought to get another one at least to the binding stage, just in case...
