Sunday Unwrapped!

Rather than wrapping up a productive week, and crossing off everything I had hoped to get finished, I came up a bit short...

Mum's hexies are still not a panel; I am about a third of the way there, but as I could, in theory, finish this on Christmas Eve, it got bumped down the priorities.

I made what was intended to be my Brit Bee Secret Santa gift, then had a wobble because it is not Christmassy in the slightest, but then figured today, what the heck.  I love it, made it with my partner in mind, and think she will take it in the spirit in which it was intended, so I am sticking with it.

I finally got to the post office on Friday and mailed my Bee Blessed blocks, Stitch Tease Secret Santa gift and LV Swap fabric; phew.

The wall-hanging is 2/3rds quilted - again, this is to divert attention from the paintwork over Christmas, so it can take a back seat to more pressing makery, but I will get it done in time, I hope.

My Christmas Gift sewing list has been made, and it's not so bad.  Fabric has been ordered for the gents and other things were started today.

And then, I had big plans for tomorrow's Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day, but I am just not ready!  I spent all afternoon preparing and cutting, and generally trying to get myself sorted, and then I ran out of steam.

So if all goes to plan, I should still be able to get finished and link up tomorrow evening, but it might be late, just in case you are interested; but I know how you all hate giveaways!

This coming week then, I am not going to set myself up for a fall, so anything will be a bonus.  If all goes to plan with everyone else, I will get a proper day off on Wednesday and make the most of it.

Oh and no photo today, sorry, what has become of me!? x


  1. Lots and lots done for you. And still managing the giveaway. I'll be back! ;-)

  2. Sounds a bit mental! Good luck :D

  3. The give away day lasts all week, so you are good to go, do not worry. And the rest sounds good to me, just breathe some more.

  4. I'm not even setting myself up for the giveaway as I'd not realised when it was until Friday! Good luck with your lists, and I'm hoping I can finally hit the PO at lunchtime tomorrow...

  5. Oh Hads, if anyone can get it all done its you!

  6. Tsk, tsk! You're on a backward slide- no photo! Send out the blogging police!

  7. Hope your Wednesday doesn't get hijacked! Another 22 days and the pressure will be off!

  8. Slacking! But with a list that looks like that and three kids, you can be forgiven for the lack of pic!!

  9. Repeat after me 'It'll all be fine...' xx
