Well, I had all sorts of grand plans for the month of August. As I was house sitting, and the house in question has a huge dining table…
I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to catch up with some sewing. I’ve got a patchwork quilt that needs to be sewn together, and also bought some beautiful broderie anglais which is also destined to be sewn into bedding… But I didn’t sew anything as I didn’t have time! Bit of a wasted opportunity, and no doubt I will be kicking myself when I eventually attempt the sewing in my tiny studio, but hey ho!
I’d also planned to get my beekeeper’s quilt finished…but didn’t knit so much as a single stitch. Major fail on that score (although since moving back home on Sunday I have made five hexipuffs, so I’m back on track).
I did get a lot of gardening done, and played with the dog a lot, and caught up with some reading too, so I wasn’t completely idle. Oh, and of course there was the dog blog (see Sunday Sketchblog #80).
This week I’m catching up with my post, e-mails, admin, and other chores (like sorting out my own garden, which turned into a little jungle while I was gone). I can’t wait to get back into my studio properly, but suspect it’ll be the weekend before I really have time to be creative again.
