Deadline

16/07/2009

I haven’t managed to write any posts lately – mainly because I’ve been just way too busy/tired. I work as a data manager in a secondary school and this time of year (leading up to summer holidays) is absolute mayhem. Luckily we break up tomorrow – almost seven weeks of no school, hurray!

I wanted this blog to be mostly about my creative efforts, but when things get as busy as they have been it’s hard to find the time and energy to do any crafting. Having said that, there’s a major deadline rapidly approaching – the birth of our third grandchild due this Monday. I’ve almost finished her cot quilt; just a little bit more binding to sew up. I was also hoping to have the monkey quilt ready at the same time so that our three year old grandson doesn’t feel left out. I’ve only managed to completely finish one new monkey, although I’ve got the others in various stages of completion.

So my plan this weekend is to do practically nothing except for sewing. I’ve no idea whether I’ll get it all finished but that’s my aim!
