I have a 3 day weekend-woo hoo, boy do I need it. Which means I only have a 3 day week next week and a four day week after that. Phew
Knowing that I have an extra day means that I didn't have to go mad with house work, studying etc all over 2 days, so I got down to some sewing
I have ordered a new dining room table (altho I don't have a dining room, so it will live in the kitchen!) which arrives on Wednesday, so I need a table runner for it. I cut up the material with a completely different pattern in mind, which I didn;t like so went with this instead
For once I have been extremly careful with my seam allowances and it has really paid off
everything matches up perfectly!! I hope to get this all sewn up tomorrow, so will hopefully have something to show on Monday
Tomorrow is Lilys fresh sewing day and having missed February and March I will definitely be posting on there tomorrow.
And I am nominating myself for the bad mother award of the week - on Monday I had to go to Clacton to do a presentation to a board of school governors. There were due to be 20 of them and one of me. Just after I had left home (about 5.30) I got a call from Jenny who was at work at Asda 'Mum, can you take me to A&E'.... I didn;t even ask her what was wrong, just ..'No, not really'
Now, if she had been screaming down the phone or I had had a co-presenter that evening, I would have been there like a shot! But she was very calm and explained that she had run over her foot with a cage full of baked bean tins. Her friend took her to casualty and I meet them there at about 9.45pm, just as she was seeing the doctor. Nothing broken but soft tissue damage. She was given crutches and has been in a lot of pain this week but seems to be on the mend today. Sometimes its really hard to juggle everything and I have spent all week feeling very guilty!!
Please feel free to nominate yourself for said award and help me not to feel so guilty!!
