So at 8:30 last night, I shut down my work laptop for the last time for 8 whole days, and I’m now on holiday… to work at the Commonwealths. Oh yes, I really know how to take a break ;o) I do have today off specifically because I’m going to the opening ceremony though, and I have got a little sewing in (although it’s almost a bit too hot to have the iron on all the time, so I’m sewing all I can before I have to turn it on to press things, then unplugging it again!).
I hope you all have a great week, and for those of you in the Commonwealth, I hope you have a great Games! As this goes live, I’ll be meeting my dad and we’ll be heading into the stadium for the opening ceremony. From tomorrow I’ll be at Tollcross, directing people for the swimming with my green foam finger and doing my best to avoid any cameras…
Finishes This Week:
My first project to be tackled this week was Anneliese’s late bee blocks (I got a bye, she’s on holiday), bringing me back up to date with my blocks:
I’ve got 2/3 of my pillowcases from my FAL Q3 list on Monday complete. It would have been 3/3, but it turned out I didn’t buy quite enough of the green voile, so I’ve had to order more in.
In Progress This Week:
I’ve got 7/8 of this turned into a top, but a cutting error means that one bit will find its way onto the back, while I wait for a replacement piece to come through. I’m just lucky I was able to get hold of another bit!
To Be Worked On This Week:
If the replacement piece arrives in time, finishing the Christmas top, and maybe quilting after my shifts (providing the loft, aka my basting area, isn’t too tropical!)
