The Time Has Come The Walrus Said ...

... for me to go back to full time work.

I don't really mind working, and I enjoy the company of my colleagues (I have worked with them before), but it leaves so much less time for everything else! And with Miss M back in day care we are going to have an onslaught of germs and bugs at home until her immune system adjusts again. Thus my Friday Night With Friends (FNFW) did not go quite as planned.

But before I bring you up to speed, if you are visiting from the Grow Your Blog (GYB) party hosted by Vicki at 2 Bags Full, thanks for stopping by. You can view my GYB post here.

So, I've actually been back at work for 1 week. It all happened rather quickly. With 1 spare day before I started I decided it would be a good idea to get my sewing room in order.



I took everything downstairs and started organising...


... then got side-tracked - baking with Miss M & making jam.



FNFW looked like a great opportunity to finish sorting and organising, followed by some relaxing stitching. But Miss M had a mild bout of gastro and neither of us got much sleep Thurs night.

I did manage to finish sorting and organising most of my UFO projects (22 & counting) ...




... which included some planning for my first design (still in the very early stages).

 
Then a bit more cuddling of Miss M and off to dinner for my nephew's 18th birthday. After that I was exhausted so no actual sewing occurred for FNWF. I haven't finished organising and sorting but have made some reasonable progress. Hopefully I can finish it off next weekend and put my sewing room back together.

I'm sure everyone else who participated in FNWF with Cheryl had a much more productive evening than I did. If you would like to see what my 50 fellow sewers got up to you can visit Cheryl's blog, Gone Stitching.

Have a great week everyone!
Cheers, Tracy.

Good idea to get your room all tidied & organised Tracy - so much easier for you to pop in & take something to work on when you have a little time...
Hope Miss M is back to normal now after her sickie

Hope the littly is much better now and I believe your FNWF was quite productive getting organised for the year ahead. It makes things run so much smoother when you know exactly where everything is for a WIP especially in our busy lifestyles
