Not my day for sewing!

I have a friend coming to visit from Houston on Friday so she is staying for 1 night in the flat in London and 3 nights in the cottage.  As you know I haven't been actively mobile over the past few weeks and my housework has rather gone to pot, so Monday I decided I needed to catch up on some much needed housework, but felt like I was doing this on my knees with one hand behind my back.

I can't believe it has taken me 3 whole days to clean one bedroom, bathroom, office, lounge and kitchen - I haven't even stepped upstairs into my sewing room, so I think this will have to be out of bounds to my visitor.  I am feeling better each day, but jobs that I would normally take in my stride are taking me so much longer because I need to take little breaks between each task.

I did wander upstairs to pick up on my jewel neck Jalie top and made a complete hash of the neck edges - annoyed and frustrated, I decided that perhaps I would take a fresh look at my problem in the morning, when hopefully I don't feel so tired.  Just to add insult to injury, many of my fellow sewing bloggers are knocking out garments like they are on a production line - yes I am just a little jealous because I may get a couple of hours sewing in tomorrow and then nothing until the middle of next week  grrrrrrrrrrr.

Catch you later.......................


  1. No growling......enjoy your company.
    Glad to hear you are feeling better and able to do housework. I have to get mine done again as I am noticing a white layer of gyproc dust on everything. How many years does it take to get out of the air?????

  2. Pauline, I know exactly what you been going on.. i had to go thought that every time i had a back operation.. and now with 500 words to write every week in assignments, sewing bug is nagging my lack of time or disposition. Take a deserved break . ps if you can let me know that software the records online classes will be great as I'm not able to catch up with my online classes i hope to record them for another time in less busy.

  3. I'm glad you are feeling up to doing more but please be careful and don't overdo. Your dear friend will understand a few dust bunnies under the bed!

  4. Don't overdo and enjoy your company. Oh, and not everyone is sewing. I have sewn 2 seams in 2 days. wheeeee!

  5. thanks ladies I am trying very hard to be good - its just hard..........
