a week of drama

Last week was a week of drama…you know the ones??? …..where nothing seems to go right and everything that can go wrong, does!  Particularly when you have a deadline to meet!

I had both my sewing machines at the doctors last week….3 times each, as neither wanted to play fair, and as I had to send my SSCS gift on its way, my fingernails became shorter and my hair became greyer in a very short space of time!

But, just in the nick of time, I got one of the cheeky little beggers back on Friday morning and it began to behave, just a little…still some naughty business but we sorted that out between us!  I can’t show you my SSCS just yet, until Christmas day, but I can show you it has gone…..

along with some other FQ swaps, birthday swaps and the wonky log cabins!

I was also in a mad rush to finish off my Christmas swap gift for our Guild break up…I really didn’t think I’d make it but……

some applique with a few beads and some hand stitching…

and some FMQ (when the machine decided she’d like to play along!!!)….

All whilst making these little gifts for the lovely ladies who join us every fortnight or so at our meeting place!


All in all, it turned out well, despite all the drama, we had such a fun time on Saturday at our break up sorting through quilty puzzles and left-right games, prizes galore and food to boot!!!!…..

all the swap gifts got sent, only a day late, and hubby took me on a lovely drive for brunch on Sunday!….aaaah bliss!   But I’ll leave that for another post!

Sugary hugs xox  :O)
