A Week of Sighs

It has been one of those weeks. Okay, so not really. Nothing has really gone wrong and technically speaking the week has been just fine, but I have spent the week sighing a lot. Do you do that? Sometimes when I am sewing I start to sigh. Loudly. That usually marks the moment that it starts to be not so fun. Maybe I'm tired, or doing some kind of repetitive sewing and despite the fact that I am completely in love with sewing and I want to do it every moment of every day, I am over it. Well I got over this week some time on Tuesday night I think. It feels like Sunday night to me right now, but it's only Thursday. (I know the post says Friday, but that's only because it is after midnight. I haven't managed to get to sleep yet so to me it is still Thursday night.) Even the fact that I have the most exciting weekend in history ahead of me is not cheering me up. It starts Friday morning (I know! A weekend that starts Friday morning should be amazing, right?) at the Patchwork Apple. I am booked in to a class with Marg Lowe. After the class I am off to Quilt Fabric Delights' Inspired Stitches. A weekend of stitching and fun. A couple of designers will be there, but I am looking forward particularly to Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches. It should be amazing. You've seen her blog, right? But I'm still feeling very ho hum about the whole thing. I've lost my zing I think. Hmm....... better get some sleep.

Oh, and as well as monsters we made donuts this week too. Not sure why we made donuts, but we did. Someone who commented on the monsters post requested a monster tutorial. I thought that was a pretty good idea, so look out for a monster tutorial next week some time. (You really don't want me writing a tutorial when I am zingless. Hopefully I will locate some zing during my amazing weekend.) Have a great weekend!

Drat, last year I meant to put a reminder in my diary to check up about Inspired Stitches towards the end of the year, of course I forgot. Maybe next year. Hope you have a great time, weather should be good.
