Drawstring Bags

I read a comment from Pip today that started me worrying. She said she was looking forward to seeing what I make over the easter break. Then she said, "No pressure". (Something we basketball Mums say when we really mean PRESSURE!!!) I started thinking about the fact that I haven't done anything yet! I am still tidying and sorting my sewing space. Then I realised that whilst tidying today I made 5 drawstring bags. One from some fat quarters that I received for my birthday in Maree's fat quarter birthday swap and the other four from leftovers from some bags I had made. I think that's why tidying takes me so long. I kind of have to do sewing as well to keep my interest! Lol! I am hopeless! These drawstring bags will be filled with projects so that I can be a little more organised. (I hope) I have uncovered all sorts of half finished things that I am excited to work on. I also have a head full of ideas for things I want to try, to make and to learn. I think I'd be dangerous if I ever got organised! Anyway, I'm having fun and really enjoying easter!

a day out ....AND ....time in your sewing room....tidying AND sewing....I had a day out too....in the house cleaning....that would get a big Eewwwwwwwwww from Miss 16..it did from me!! but it looks fab now so hopefully if everyone goes out today I will get some time in my sewing room....does that sound anti social??? I haven't really had any time to myself in weeks....so am looking forward to hopefully having some today...there is a craft fair in the hall about a 100 metres from us today so I will be having a look there as well....enjoy the rest of the Easter break.....!

I should go and tidy my sewing space. Maybe I will get some in-between sewing done too!

Happy Easter!

I can totally relate. it is so easy to get sidetracked in your crafty space. Love the spotty bag!

Ahhh....so now I know where Ashlee got the idea for having a drawstring bag. I need to go and make one for her.
