So sorry – it’s been a while. My life is being eaten up with trips, work, kids (and I’ve started exercising again) – and I have had ZERO free time to sew. Not to mention write the post about the giveaway winner!
I know. This.Is.Serious. I have a Frocktails dress to make. I am getting more frustrated by the day about my lack of free time 😦
I’m sure I can pull a rabbit out of a hat… or a drunk monkey before Frocktails – watch this space…
And the winner of the Abakhan Fabric is…
LOUISE of Sew Sensational!
Please contact me via email sewbusylizzy at gmail and I will send it fabric to you – congratulations Louise!
Let’s see what Louise makes of Grandma’s Rocking Chair on Acid fabric!
It stinks when life gets in the way of what we want to do, isn’t it? I miss your posts, but totally understand if you are being a responsible adult. Carry on.
Duh, I meant, doesn’t it, not isn’t it. It’s early here.
Oh it’s been so frustrating. I have lots of ideas and no time 😦 hopefully I will find a few hours soon and blogging will resume as normal!
Great to see you again. I’m with you in the life gets in the way category. Just posted for the first time in months myself. It’s nice and cleansing to allow yourself to take a break, and then you can return with a vengeance! Your 8280 is a stunner!!
Hugs and welcome back
Hi Shelley, glad I’m not the only blogger lost in life’s wilderness of responsibilities! Glad you have found your way back to blogland too xox
Oh I feel your pain! Real life. Sigh. I regularly get asked by non sewing friends how I find time to sew and I say “I don’t watch TV” which is so not the whole story but seems to pacify them. But where there is a will, and passion, eventually we find the time, make the time, find a way. In the meantime sometimes it’s just impossible and that’s ok too. Looking forward to seeing your frocktails make. If anyone can pull a rabbit out of a hat, it will be you. 😉
I rarely watch TV either! I have so little free time I try to spend every minute of it doing something I enjoy. All the traveling takes its toll though. It’s impossible to sew at other people’s houses, not to mention rude, and while it’s fun to get out & about, I do desperately miss my creative time…
Yayyy! Thank you so much 🙂 I’m sending you an email over now!
Yep, my frock for tails is going to be sewn right to the last minute methinks. Nothing like a good deadline to kick you into gear 😉
Yes, I think I’ve decided – now I need some TIME!!! That’s the hardest of all
Don’t forget to sleep somewhere in there too! Congrats to Louise 🙂
My prize arrived in the post today! Thank you so much, and for the extra pattern too 🙂
Sorry it took so long! I’ve been away so much it took me forever to get organised. Hope you enjoy it!!
haha no problem – it had a long way to travel! (and excuse me whilst I plaster my excitement over various internet/social media outlets!)
