You know how some weeks turn out not as you’d expected? Well that was last week.
It started well with some instant gratification sewing.
|City Sampler, block 11|
A very quick block from Tula Pink’s City Sampler book. I really should join in the City Sampler SAL being hosted by Sara from Sew Sweetness among others, I’m holding back because its just something else to add to the list each week/month???….but I have got a lovely stack of Bella that hasn’t been used yet, that would look amazing hmmm? To join another SAL or not, that IS the question.
I then went on to pull my fabric choices for June’s Together. at do Good Stitches blocks, which led to this

which then led on to this
|sorted, folded and realising that I haven’t got a big stash after all|
Which obviously led to me finally sorting out all the clutter in the old (tatty) bureau/writing desk we have in the corner of the dining room that I have been intending to call my own to house my sewing stuff.

I was on a roll, I even sorted out my most pressing projects into zip files
|I am uber organised – how long will it last??|
The rest of the week was taken up by more ‘building new website/blog’ work and my marketing course had a training call I’d forgotten about so some quick swatting was in order.
Hopefully this week will be more productive, this is what I want to get finished this week.
The Fat Quarterly Retreat in London is fast approaching, I want to get my swap partners name tag completed and ready to post.

My bee blocks need making and sending. At least I can find all my fabric now!
