Long day,i'm tired!!!

Hi everyone,

had a very busy day today getting ready for my visitor,she arrives in 3 days!!! I have rearranged her room,moved lots of furniture,and changed all the lamps and cushions around.Will post pics tomorrow if the light is good enough to take some!It is cold and dingy up here at the moment!!

I have bought myself a lovely vintage French chest of drawers for my bedroom after waiting 5 years to find the right one,as the one i have is too small! So that has now gone in ,my spare room and my new one has taken pride of place in my bay window.

My lovely friend Kaz came around yesterday to help me clean up,i am getting so stressed out as i just have 20 million things to do and not enough time to devote to everything! And all i want to do is sit in front of my sewing machine and sew,i have a lot of new ideas and no time to try them out!And some gorgeous new fabrics!!

I have had quite a few requests for some more pics,thank you everyone for being so friendly!!!So i'll put some oldies up and when i take new ones will post them as well!!!

I will try and reply to all my emails,sometimes i get 25 a day and i just run out of time as i have to share the computer with my hubby and kids! And suze,i still have to ring you,i am trying to squeeze it in!!! I havnt forgotten you my dear friend!!!!

Busy week sewing!!

Well,after a very busy weekend,i can get back into my sewing! I have so many projects and orders on the go,i am always busy!
Just getting ready to do my listings for ebay,this is the part i fond a chore! I love to sew,i love to photograph,but typing description after desription,i find i run out of interesting things to say!
Only a few days to go now until my special visitor from Denmark arrives,we are looking forward very much to having Sukie arrive!I am still madly cleaning and trying to get organised,but i dont feel like i am getting anywhere!!

Tomorrow i am out for the day shopping and having lunch with a friend,so looking forward to a little break! But not for long because as per usual i am the mum taxi and chauffering my son around to his million different sports! I do love that he has an interest in sports,but it is a bit out of control and he has training for one thing or another 7 days a week!
Anyway,i'll try and post some pics of my latest projects going up on ebay shortly!I just have to get motivated to type,which i am not so good at!

Have a nice evening everyone,my first week of blogging has been great!Thanks to all my lovely emails!!!
