Patchy pleasures


Things have been rather hectic, stressful and crazy here as you can imagine. Here we are trying to keep a house picture perfect whilst both working full time with a mischievous little scalliwag (who seriously makes up for it with cuteness!) thinking up plans to undo all our efforts. Okay, not really, he's just being a 2 year old. Nevertheless, it's exhausting.

So, after Monday's mid-day open, we realised we didn't have an open for another week and decided that we can relax a little (but not too much or else we'll struggle to get it ready again for the next open), so after Austy is in bed, the dishwasher is on, the washing is hung and all is well I have been avoiding TV, trying not to linger on the net, and hitting the sewing machine, letting my stresses disperse through stitchy goodness! I am rather limited on fabrics as I am ona fabric buying ban and most of my stuff is packed and in storage, but thankfully I just had a birthday.

As you can see, some of my birthday swap fats have become very handy. I am enjoying every stitch and look forward to this time of the evening. As a matter of fact, got to run, there's a sewing machine out on the desk calling my name!
