it's been a full on week, with many crappy nights sleep thrown in to the mix, and i was so looking forward to spending time this weekend tackling a few of the large projects that have been hanging over my head for months - a complicated (mostly in size) pattern that's due to a craft magazine in june, a quilted throw for our couch before the weather gets too chilly, some comfy around the house pants in the lovely sweat material i picked up at darn cheap, curtains for our bedroom and the baby's room... i planned on getting at least one of these knocked off the list today and instead just faffed around with each of them in turn - couldn't decide on fabric choices to test the pattern for the magazine, couldn't be bothered ironing the fabric for the quilt, pulled out the sweat pant/pj pant pattern, cleaned off my table to cut it out and then couldn't find my tracing paper... sigh. somedays everything is just a bit too hard and this was one of them. in the end i got one curtain panel of the two needed for our bedroom done and i'm not even too happy with the way this turned out - i'm using a cotton/linen blend and it's possibly the most wrinkle attracting fabric known to man.
shane and i are kelpie sitting tonight and, after a big lap of the dog park and a stop at the video shop for casino royale, i think i need to spend some time mindlessly cutting out oobees so i can feel like i accomplished something today...
