Getting prepped!

Only 1 more day at work before my sew fest!!!! Whoopee, I cant wait. Last night I decided that instead of just getting to Thursday morning and wondering where to start I would have some kind of structure to my extended sewing weekend.

I started with a quick stock take and made of list of bags that needed to be replenished, but keeping it down to a minimum per style combo as I like to only make 5 or 6 of the same (it was already a big list by this point). Then I decided that I would have a little dabble with my new project (still under wraps) so I wrote a separate list for that.

Next on my list is a new set of cosmetic pouches and coin purses for which I bought some new fabric (sssshhhhh don't tell the other half, he already thinks I have a big enough collection) :)

And here it is, I bought these fat quarters from Nuno they have a lovely selection of Japanese fabrics and accessories. And me being me, cant resist any fabric websites!!!! I think I am addicted!

I am also going to be able to make use of my new cutting table.....I had to give in and buy one, sitting on the floor now kills me knees!! Well I'm just not as young as I used to be ;) I can hear my joints sighing with relief as I type.


  1. Have fun! That sounds great!
