Not very much
As expected, I didn't get much done today, sewing-wise (we pretty much just vacated the house while they worked on the floor). I did finish the centre block for the round robin (which I can't show) but I can't post it off to the next person quite yet as a)I need to take the paper off and b)I can't actually get to the drawer where the envelopes are at the moment, as there is too much stuff piled in front of it. They hope to be finished with the living room tomorrow, so perhaps I'll mail it Wednesday - it's not due to go out until mid-August, luckily, so it's not really a problem.
Among the errands we ran today to take us out of the house, I popped into my local haberdashery & craft department for a zipper (see - there's a zipper in the above photo!). Technically, I did also need the plain black fabric and the black thread, too, but the other stuff just kinda jumped in the bag (and yes, there are a lot of brads there - I kind of have this brad thing* at the moment, and there are so many nice ones to be had these days) - between the order from the Fruit Pixie and this, my embellishment stock is in much better shape than a few weeks ago - now if I just had some time to make things, we'd be sorted. [Other errands included a haircut for Olivia, the bank to pay in the school uniform shop money, booking a fun day for Alex during the week the girls both have tennis (i.e. no kids in the house between 10 and 3 - how much work do you suppose I can cram into that time?) and various other bits and pieces - such is the excitement of my life...]
*I was going to make a Brad Pitt joke, but couldn't really think of anything funny, so decided not to.
