If you phone me you will hear typing in the background as I put the final touches on the patterns I am preparing for Stitches and Craft.
If you pop in for a cuppa you will be handed something to fold, stickers to stick or fabric to sort.
You will be nagged about joining in with Handmade Help either by donating or bidding or in whatever way you can.
If I head out in the car (as a passenger) the car craft basket will be brought along.
The term frantic was used this morning, but I prefer to think of it as effective time management.
I am really excited about Stitches and have just been told that my workshops will be going ahead.....how cool is that? At first I was so nervous at the thought of teaching a workshop (and I use the word "teaching' extremely loosely), but then I figured.....Whats the worst thing that can happen? ..... I'll just bribe all the participants with chocolate anyway !
Apart from that, I recently delivered a whole slew of selvedge products to Living Creatively for a display - Yep.....The Frock is coming to the show as well. I am really really excited / nervous about this. I mean of course I am excited that the poor dear gets out of the wardrobe , but I am kinda nervous about all those bona fide seamstresses out there checking out my seams and darts.
There will be other selvedge things there as well, even one or two that have yet to be seen on the blog..........In fact the latest not-so-big-but-kinda-more-technical project is about 290 short pieces of selvedge from completion...... and I am sooo in love with it , that I plan to give up sleeping to get it there in March.

Ester and Ruby and Violet are very excited to be coming along to the show. They are a bit nervous to be meeting lots of bloggers but they know that some really really fun people will be there. They are less than happy that Harry and Oscar will be coming along as well. They have made me promise that they don't have to play with them if they are being silly.
Having spent the day with Harry and Oscar, I am just hoping they don't poke anyone, throw food or call someone a poo-bum head.

I saw a tutorial for making paper gift wrap thingy's recently ( I have no idea where) and when I was chopping the tails of all the too-long zippers...I fiddled these similar little doo-dads....
But then I fiddled this one into existence from the tape measure stash.......
