Projects for a long weekend

Well, it's been a wet weekend in our part of Queensland. Where we are we dont have to worry about floods but it must have been very scary for other people.

While cleaning and sorting was on my agenda I wanted to spend some time sewing.

Saturday afternoon I spent working on scrap books. I'd had photos printed and really wanted to get some of those sorted. I had bought a mini Christmas album with pre-designed pages - just insert photos, journalling and a few embellishments. Creative Memories publish them.

In about an hour I had Christmas Morning sorted.

I then went on and put together the main part of our big Christmas album for last year and made a start on my daughter's graduation. A very successful afternoon.

Yesterday I spent time sorting DVDs and found lots that had been used and not returned to their cases! Mostly by that person who dwells in our house and causes lots of trouble but is yet to be seen by anyone - "Someone else"!

Saturday night we watched a re-run of Legally Blond 2. And while this was on, I made a start on the first Project from the Little Things Club. I've subscribed to this through Quilt Fabric Delights. All English Paper Piecing. I think all by Sue Daley. The first one is clam shells. I've done lots of hexies but never tried these.

I spent Saturday night glueing and last night sewed the clams together and got started on appliqueing the rows.

Love the colours Sarah chose. It's a great hand sewing project. Looking forward to month 2 - which I know is coming soon!

The sun is shining here this morning. Although they say the rain hasn't completely gone but even a little bit of sunshine is welcome at the moment.

A big week of craft here - Sewing Guild tomorrow, monthly sewing project on Wednesday, scrapbooking tonight and card making on Thursday! All come together in the one week.
