Tuesday 22 March 2011

  • My sewing has been keeping me so busy lately that I have continued to neglect my blog. 
  • I haven't actually sold one of my covers yet but I am not go to let that get me down.  I need to make more samples and hit the gift shops before the tourists come to town, so now I need a name - any ideas?
  • I collected my Mum today and took her to a couple of shops and ended back at my house for a rare treat - fish and chips.
  • I am in the process of applying for 2 jobs that I fancy, I need to get out more and the longer I am at home the more I realise it is essential for me, isolation just makes me lazy.
  • We are going away for a night this weekend to a party for someone we met 10 years ago in the Maldives.  She visited us years ago in Cape Town, I would hardly call her a friend, but we are going anyway.  She is putting us up in her new fancy house so I am looking forward to a change of scenery.  What to wear is the only problem :(
