So last night I decided to go to the website where I was hoping to get my new machine from and just drool over it for a bit. Only to find Shock Horror it's no longer listed! I can get the next machine up but that means adding a lot more money to the purchase! Cue lots of Internet searching and debating and probably weeks of agonising as I don't do impulse buys of this nature.
But then I decided that I really needed to get on with some sewing as the deadline in the Brit Quilt Swap Round 3 is imminent and whilst I'd done the quilt, I'd not done the label.
This is the front of the quilt
This is the back with the label - my finger was on hand to grab the leaf if it tried blowing away again!
Could your name be under the leaf? And don't ask how I managed to sew it on so wonky :-(
So now I need to go and get together an extra and wrap it all up and then I'll be good to go. I hope my partner likes it. I've never worked up to a deadline like this before. Normally I'd be done and dusted ages before. However, being ill at the start of the month, then having a turn before going on holiday sort of ate into my time like I didn't believe possible and then the missing mojo hasn't helped. Lets hope it decides it's had holiday enough soon!
