Today, it's full on sewing all day.

I will get the large Wonky House Runner finished this morning, then move on to trying to get 3 small Tree Runners done too.

I've got 3 full days of sewing to try and get as much done as possible.  I know I need to build up my stock again... can't believe I've sold so much in the past few months!

And of course, I really should have tried to make more in the past month, but oh well... shit happens.

ABOVE:  A cool photo taken last night, during our FBG walk, of St Andrews Church here in Cambridge.  So pretty at night.

And that's all I have for now!  It's going to be a long, quiet day no doubt.


11.25 am:   Finally finished the W.H.Runner:

ABOVE:  I have sent a photo of it off to the lady who ordered it.  Now I wait to see if she likes it!  Nervous.  

On with Small Tree Runners now... less stress involved with those thank goodness.

1.30 pm:   I've got a bit of a production line going on:

ABOVE:  My kitchen benches come in SO HANDY *smiles*.
I've got 8 small tree runners on the go.  There's no guarantee I will get them all done before Sunday, but I'm gunna give it a go!

So... I have heard from the lady who commissioned the Large W.H.Runner.  She loves it!  What a relief.  She's going to pick it up at the Market on Sunday.

This afternoon I got all 8 Small Tree Runners pinned up, and I've done the stitching on 3 of them already!  So yes, a very productive day.
And tomorrow will be the same. 

By the time I'd finished laying out and pinning all those runners, my back was literally KILLING ME.... so I piked out of cooking dinner.

We are having chinese takeaways.  And NO, I don't feel bad about that at all!  *smiles*

I'm freezing now, so it will be nice to curl up with a blankie and have dinner in front of the TV.  Then I might do some more sewing.  Or not, we will see.

Catch ya tomorrow.


  1. I'm sure she'll love the runner. If she doesn't does she have to pay you anyway?

    1. She has paid a deposit... so if she hates it I will give her the deposit back and sell it at market, and for twice the price I quoted her!
