Hi all :) i'm sorry i haven't posted all that often recently - the truth is i am stressed for two reasons. One: my life is hectic, all. the. time. Sometimes i think that surely there will be some point where it all evens out and things are just normal...but i think it's a myth haha. I have been madly preparing for my son's party which is in 3 days [ARGH!] and my husband's birthday is also next week + father's day in 4 days and i have been working and family drama! Sigh. And then there's still the health side. I was completely 100% fine with it all until about mid this morning when i found out from the hospital that they would be giving me my test results on Friday...i know i should be relieved but it's brought up some really weird emotions...Sigh...again hehe.
BUT i have been doing some sewing...
Remember i mentioned quite a while back that my kids broke the bottom window of their bedroom door within the first week of moving into our new house? Hmmm maybe i forgot to mention it...either way they did and i have been meaning to make a curtain [i'm not replacing the glass because they will just break it again and again + it's not safe to have glass in a door near my kids]...so i made one! Don't you love the fabrics - most of which i purchased from Brenda of [Pink Castle Fabrics].
Today i also felt very motivated and made up all the party favor bags for the weekend. A big thanks to Sal of [Fat Quarters and Bobbins] who allowed me to borrow her overlocker when mine packed up over the weekend! You're the best :)
On top of letting me borrow her overlocker, Sally also came over for a Birthday sewing evening to help me out with these flags...Sally went above and beyond the call of duty by babysitting my daughter after i got a last minute call to go to the hospital for my Nanna - she cut out all the flags while i was gone, did my dishes and fed my child....one word...LEGEND! Once i got home we spent the remainder of the evening sewing the flags and tonight mum is coming over to help me turn them out, iron them and make them into a couple of super long buntings :)
i have also nearly finished hand quilting my dad's flannel Gradpa Quilt just in time for Father's Day!
Chances are that between now and the party i probably wont have much time to post [between sewing, decorating, collecting hay bales and the like hehe] but i promise to give a full account of the event soon after!
