Well sadly the pink crate has been sent back to the garage, and the big guns have been called down from the loft - having tried in vain to get everything in, I have resorted to the good old wheelie-holdall, which, quite literally holds all I need to take to Retreat and leaves me with a free hand to wave with!
No photo, it's blue, and boring, so I might have to do something about that!
I have finished everything I wanted to get done before Saturday, (although I have that niggle that there was something I didn't write down as it was so so obvious I wouldn't forget, and now I can't remember).
Here's my final flurry of making...
...more of Nova's little +x brooches - I'm still undecided whether they look cutely 'rustic' or just like I let my kids loose with fabric, thread and scissors! Hey ho.
I have now finished work until 11th June, so I am rather happy about that. I've played my refreshment-monitor role at the school disco this evening, and now just have the cleaning and weekend shopping to do tomorrow morning; I don't want those staying at home to starve or catch anything nasty. Then it'll be all about the nail varnish and the 'mummy time'!
Anyhow, I will see most of you tomorrow for Fresh Sewing Day on June the 1st, for goodness sake already!
And for those who will be in London tomorrow - have a good start and I'll catch you bright and early on Saturday xxx
