Well there hasn’t been too much sewing going on to report for today, but I will tell you what has gone on in the past few days.
On Wednesday night I decided that my craft room really really really needed a good cleaning. It was getting to the point where I had to walk over things and well I heard rumours that the next episode of hoarders was going to be at my place so I got my butt in gear. The bad thing about letting things get out of control is that it takes so much extra effort to clean it. You would think I would have learnt this by now.
My mother always kept a spotless house I however did not get those genes and instead got the ones from my father where we keep everything, don’t put away our things and leave every cupboard door open and light on....lol I would have loved to have shown you a before picture, however it was just too embarrassing...lol So long story short I spent a good part of Wednesday cleaning up, which if you clean like me means that things get worse before they get better. I still have another good couple of hours of cleaning before it is done.
This is where things are at now.....which doesn't really let me do any sewing..lol The sewing machine on the other side of the room is clean, but my cutting table is piled HIGH with...crap....LOL
Thursday night was Mr. Pickles and my 4th wedding anniversary. We decided no presents this year and instead we would spend the extra money on eating out.
Since Mr.P is Swiss we fondue quite a bit and that was our first choice of what to do for our anniversary. We were just going to stay at home and do that, however, there just happens to be a fondue restaurant in Saskatoon that we had never been to. So we figured we would give it a try and it was pretty good. Now when we put on a meat or cheese or chocolate fondue at our place we go all out and have enough meat or bread or fruit to feed us plus 4 more. You can’t really expect that from a restaurant, but it was still good enough and we left full. Now would we go back again....probably not since we do a better job, but it was something different. We are still questioning if the restaurant is the reason we were both sick that night/Friday too!!
Okay if you survived reading all of that .....back to sewing.....kind of....lol
I did end up getting a bit done. I picked the last thing on my no progress list and started on it. It is a fall wall hanging. I have everything cut out and ready to iron on. I am not very good at machine sewing the appliqué, but I shall see how it goes.....
can you guess what this will become??
Have a great day
