Desperation at work...

This past week has just flown by, but I did manage to fit in a little sewing this last weekend. I am acutely aware that I need to make some swap items for the FQ Retreat. Time is ticking away and I have absolutely no inspiration at all! Desperation has now taken over, so I got to work with some cutting and sewing.
I have chosen some bright colours...
I have also had a little go at writing on some linen... As you can see it isn't great. You will be pleased to know that I scrapped this one!

I think that I have done a little better with the one below. I don't think that I can hone the skill in time for the Retreat, so this is my best effort.

I  am going to try and finish this project  in the next couple of days. I will report back when I have a finish!

  1. I think we are all suddenly sewing like demons - except Hadley who will be fully prepared.

  2. And I'm enjoying watching what you're all making! (Bet Hadley has her cases packed and lined up at the door!)

  3. She has and she has had her train ticket since she bought the FQ ticket!

    But normal people like us haven't finished our swap items yet! The writing looks great - and those colourful pieces will make it look even better! Take heart!

  4. I can't wait to see all of your swap items. How many are you making? Oh only a week away!
