Well tonights the night I can wash my hair after my 3 days avoiding water lol (cue a lot of dry shampoo!!) – I’ll be driving home from work and walking straight through the door and into the shower!!

I’ll post an update of how my hair is after the straightening treatment later.

I thought I’d use this blog to keep track of everything I’m trying to get done, especially craft wise mainly sewing.


I have a pair of standard curtains to make plus linings for my bedroom.  All fabrics and headers are bought I just need to get black thread for my overlocker and get stuck in – fabric is sat in its Simon Boyd bag on the kitchen floor until then.

I have fabric (black with little blue embroidered flowers) and a pattern to make a 50s dress.  The pattern’s cut but that is as far as I have got so far – need to set aside the time to cut the fabric and get pinning and fitting.

I also have approx 3m of a gorgeous pvc/oilcoth fabric in cream with little radley shaped dogs on that I want to make some bags with.

So all in all not enough hours in the day or days in the week to move anything forward – I shall have to get stuck in this weekend to make some progress!
