To Do List 23

Happy New Year!! Did you all have a good break? I hope so! Mine was very relaxed and quiet, but I don't necessarily feel relaxed today back at work but hey ho! There is no one about today (hence the blog post) so I am taking it easy for the day!

I didn't get anywhere near as much sewing done as I hoped, I did some but mostly before Christmas not in the 5 days was back in London after, we decided to try do some improvements to our home in preparation for Baby arriving, which basically means tried to increase storage space, a trip to IKEA, £300 later and we sat all day yesterday building cupboards! Not my idea of fun but it will be worth it!

So, here is what I did get done:

Christmas Presents

1.       Finish cross stitch - FORGOT TO TAKE A PHOTO OF IT FINISHED!!

2.       Sew hat – Lily – Ellie – Heidi – Emily

3.       Add velcro to hat – Lily – Ellie – Heidi – Emily – James – Ewan

36.       Sew straps
37.       Sew front
38.       Add band
39.       Sew legs
40.       Add snaps

M7038 Top - Yellow
43. Sew back
44.       Add sleeves
45.       Bind neckline
46.       Hem

70.       Sew up

74.       Close opening
75.       Add snaps

A-Line Dress – Rabbit
76.       Sew up
77.       Close opening
78.       Add snaps

Which is 24 out of 81 from my last #kristystodolist (29.6%). Not too bad but was really hoping to wipe it out. Never mind...

This week going to be hard to squeeze in some sewing time, I have to head back up north tomorrow for a funeral and then I am at my OH's friends birthday party overnight in Kent, then the weekend after the in-laws are visiting London so doubt will get too much done again so you may not hear from me for a couple of weeks.

Here is my next list;



On top of this list I have done a bit of an inventory of the many pieces of fabric I keep buying to try keep it in check - at which I am failing badly! I can't decide what to sew though...I have half a metre of each:

Lemon/pink flannel
Duck cotton
Giraffe cotton
Raindrop cotton
Star cotton
Robot cotton
Monster cotton
Lobster cotton
Safari cotton
Panda sweatshirt
Black sweatshirt
Geese
Gingham
Whales
Plain denim
Red flower
Square denim

Hopefully I will have made some decisions about the above before my next list!

Wishing you a lovely new year and all the best for 2017!
