Is it possible to get so 'involved' with crafts/sewing that you would rather do that than anything else?

Cos that's kinda how I feel right now.  Like all I want to do is sew.  And sew.  

It's the weekend.  I don't think we have anything riveting planned, except maybe waterblasting the concrete and cleaning the windows.   How bloody exciting is that?  *sigh*

Summer is pretty much here already, it's been quite warm lately... and I have decided I don't like being hot anymore!  I used to love summer the MOST... now I think I dread it!  Being overweight again god damn it is no fun in summer.

I have not been sticking 100% to the NO CARBS... do jellybeans count?  I had been craving them ALL WEEK, and last night Stew got me some.   And I ate them.  What is it about cravings? 

I have no excuse... I ain't pregnant!  *shaking me head*.... I really must try to stop giving in to my evil little 'wants' eh?

I've been sewing this morning, and watching a few things on the telly... this cute card arrived in the post today:

It's from Froggy in Australia, she had bought the brown floral bag... which is gorgeous if I must say so!  lol
I love how she selected at card with shells in it!  It's a beautiful card, thanks 'Froggy'!

I'm off now to post her bag....

Bag posted.

Now feeling quite IKKKK... like... dirty ikkkk.
Stew and I are scrubbing and waterblasting the house, windows and concrete.  So far we have done about 1/6th of the house.  Next weekend we will do more.  For now... I am feeling filthy, need to go have a shower.  Ikkkkk....

End of Day:  and I've had one 'finish' and two 'starts' today on bags today... and feel good that we are on to getting the house and grounds all nice for summer.  Pleasantly tired now... my foot is almost all better too... no sign of infection which is neat, I was kinda worried about that as I refused to have a tetnus injection... well hell, last time I had one I had a really nasty reaction to it... and soooo didn't want that to happen again did I?  If had NOTHING to do with my having a needle phobia, nope, nothing at all!  lol
nite nite.


  1. Giving in to your 'evil little wants' is one of lifes great pleasures! Just get Stew involved and ensure your 'evil little wants' are no or low calorie!!

  2. So much easier said than done, isn't it? I gained about 5kg recently and despite healthy eating it just won't shift. Not one little gram! Still, at least I am making an effort. Gotta be something in that... :-)

    And isn't it funny how our headspace determines what we do? Like when you really didn't try, just cut out carbs, your brain was in a good place, and the weight just fell off? Wish I could get my brain to do that! Haha.

    Good luck, chick. Sending you "good food vibes". haha. xx

  3. Hey as long as what you're doing makes you happy and doesn't hurt anyone else - then it's win/win all the way and then of course there's the huge added bonus of all the beautiful creations you're producing. As always I'm so in awe of your talents! Zxx

  4. I am absolutely powerless over cravings!!... if I want it, I have it. And that's probably as good thing because if you deny yourself you end up obsessing over the item and eating *much* more of it than you really should.

    In other news, Corby is back in hospital. We have another diagnosis: Pyloric stenosis, which is "a narrowing of the pylorus, the lower part of the stomach through which food and other stomach contents pass to enter the small intestine"

    Anyway, he'll probably have surgery for it tomorrow. Bad timing and it's Guy's birthday and I have a big party planned for him...

  5. Try this diet -

  6. Chris I reckon the only way I'm gonna lose any weight is if I sew my flamin' lips together!!!!
    Joy :o)

  7. I'm terrible with cravings and not just when I'm pregnant. Some people can just have a little of something and move on, not me I have to gorge on it.

    That is called having a passion when you want to do something you love all the time. More people should be passionate like you! Waterblasting the house must have been a nice and cool job in the warm weather, like running around under the sprinkler! WOMBAT

  9. hey Chris,
    Love the fabric you chose for my bag... tried to leave a comment yesterday, but blogger had an epic fail.. so it got lost in the big wide web somewhere :-)
    Don't worry, you are not the only one who hates summer... I can't stand the heat!

  10. Sewing up a storm again, then waterblasting well necessary jobs and at least it was warm.

  11. Glad your foot is getting better and boy have you been busy AGAIN :)



  12. Glad to hear that foot is better. That picture made me cringe!

    I don't think that there is anything wrong with sewing so much - after all you are making money from it!

    Are you still making your cards as well?

  13. I wouldn't worry unless you end up homeless on the street, begging passersby "Got any thread? Spare thimble?"
    And no Jelly Beans are vegetables. All good and no bad. Funny you mention jelly beans though, I had strong craving s the other day and went to the grocery store and got a bag. they are INCREDIBLY good, I couldn't believe how good they were as I was eating them.

  14. Yay! Can't wait to receive it! Thanks mate! xxx

  15. I get on little crafty jags like that too. Although not lately. Lately it's just been facebook and blog jags haha.

  16. you gotta love stew-in the end he just gives in and you get your way. i'm just like you and i have my 'stew'. aren't we lucky?:)

    i'm glad your leg is feeling better. just few more days and you'll be able to run. :)

    hugs, danka
