FNSI

I had a bit of a blow out last night as this week was mayhem….. volunteering at the op. shop and tutoring Monday and Tuesday, Funeral for a work colleague Wednesday, and Thursday - Friday I was working at the op shop again…….the first full week of work on my feet since my operation 3 1/2 years ago and my knee didn’t like it one little bit!  But it’s recovering well…..however, last night I was totally knackered and didn’t get a great deal done.

Had a bit of secret cross-stitching to do but lost motivation after about 3 rows and then I thought I might get started on a hexi for Our Craft Group Hexi Flower Swap.

It got to 11pm and I got this much done and I just  couldn’t do any more….. I didn’t even have the energy to move from my chair to get to bed!  Don’t you hate that??

After a good sleep I’m feeling motivated so I finished it off this morning. It’s ready to be sent to my partner…..early!

Now, I had big plans for sewing catch-up this afternoon, but after running into a friend this morning whilst shopping, she reminded me the Pink Lady Breakfast, a fundraiser for Breast Cancer in our district, is on tomorrow….the one I promised to make 80 booby biscuits for!!! Yikes…….I truly thought it was next weekend!  Guess what I’m now doing all afternoon??? (and I daresay well into the night!)

But I don’t mind a bit….. it’s all for an exceptional cause.

Make sure you pop on over HERE to visit all the other ladies who linked in and stitched with me last night at FNSI.  Get your stitchiness on!

A week like that, & now all those bikkies to make??! Golly Wendy, I wouldn't have the energy to even THINK about picking up a needle...
hope you get a quiet few days this week to recover from it all! xo

Good heart, good deeds. =) Love the hexagon - the fabric almost looks like a suede or velvet!
