I got the bag made last night. It's sat wrapped up in a gift bag, waiting for me to exchange pressies with the recipient soon. I can't show you a picture though in case the person stops by my blog and works out it's for them. There is something very satisfying about finishing something. Especially when time is of the essence.
I've been agonising about something over the last few days. Well ever since the tickets for the FQ Retreat went on sale. I was one of the people that yelled around all over blog land how us Brit Quilters need something in the UK to rival the sewing summit. So I was over the moon when I discovered the funsters at Fat Quarterly had organised a retreat in London. I was whooping and dancing all over the place. Then I read another comment on the blog that announced it, that it was the Jubilee weekend and I felt kind of deflated, because bank holiday weekends are really hard for me to commit too. Still I thought it will be a while before I have to make a decision. And then this week the tickets went on sale. Accommodation will get snapped up, as Jubilee weekend in London is likely to be very busy! If I don't book a room now (which means finding a roomie super quickly) then I could miss out on being able to go - should I be able to go.
So now I'm agonising. I can already imagine how disappointing it's going to be if I don't go, as the world and her sewing pet is shouting about the retreat already. It's going to have more build up in this little corner of blog land than the 2012 Olympics have had any where.
The other thing I'm agonising over is whether I can get my Mum a little hand made something whipped up. In my frenzy to have a mainly handmade Christmas I completely forgot about dear old Mum. Any suggestions gratefully received.
And because I don't like blogging without a picture here is the tea lighter I was given for Christmas last year looking all festive. It's about the only festive decor I have up so far...
