The Faster I Go, The Behinder I Get

I'm having a busy weekend here! Friday I was at son's school for 3 hours in the morning and 5 hours that night! And am doing a bridesmaid dress alteration today. Church tomm. followed by a friend's Spring Concert (one of my sewing lesson buddies). And I have quite a bit on my Blog To Do List. patient. This is what I will be catching up on....

**Sharing Betty's 12 skirt sets for The Hundred Skirts Project. They arrived last week and they are AWESOME! It was like Christmas opening her box. Even DH was impressed. Do you know how hard it is to impress a man with children's clothing?

**A giveaway in honor of reaching our 100 Skirts goal

**Yesterday's Mother's Day Gift idea which took much longer than I anticipated. It's a cute little fabric memorabilia portfolio. I had seen them in stores, but had no pattern, never made one before. So the first one turned out a little rough and I wanted to make a couple more. So there was no Mother's Day post yesterday, but I'll catch up!! To see the posts to date on this series, click on Mother's Day in the labels section on the sidebar.

**My sewing room progress. We've set up the prototype and I'm sewing and working in it to works out the bugs before we move forward with the next step - wiring and electricity.

**Progress on my lavender quilt. Chugging away slowly at that and will share pics soon.

**A Discharge Dyeing Tutorial. I have everything set up to do a trial run on this new technique before I teach it to my sewing students on Monday. I hope to squeeze it in this afternoon.

I'll get to it all just as soon as I can!!!! :) :)

I know exactly what you mean..
two steps forward one step back in this house lately!
I am running away from home next week (going to quilt retreat on the opposite site of the country) stressing about that, stressing about getting stuffs finished before I go, wondering if I have enough clothes etc.. all good stress though!

Slow down before you collapse! Good grief, it makes my tire just reading about everything on your to-do list.

Paula - I LOVE to be busy creating. I NEED it. If I was being busy doing paperwork or bookkeeping, I'd be miserable. :) I did lay on the couch last night and watch not one but TWO Jane Austen movies. And didn't feel guilty a minute! :)

I'm the same way, I have a deep-seated need to create things. But I try not to pressure myself. ;)
