I have been messing about lately. Loads of ideas are buzzing around but I don't seem to be able to sit down and do anything really productive. I have quite a few orders at the moment for fleece blankets, cushions, quilts, wallets, pictures, dolls and so on but I am finding it really hard to knuckle down and do them! I think I must be a very primitive hunter-gatherer type - I like going out and getting the work but get distracted when it comes to doing it!
I'm probably being too self-critical. I have pretty much finished the baby-clothes quilt top (although I can't show you it as my friend who ordered it may look on here) and I made Grandpa Biscuit's quilt top over the weekend - these both now need to wait until Friday when I plan to go shopping for the wadding. I've also made these little purses that will be going into my Etsy.
I didn't manage to do much crafting yesterday except for this little elephant purse because I went back to school! I have volunteered to help in Fred's school on Monday mornings and yesterday was my first day. I spent most of the time cutting out on the guillotine but also did a bit of colouring in and shape-drawing-round with the reception class. In the afternoon (which I had forgotten until the day) I had meet-the-teacher in Fred's class so I had to rush back up to school and then rush home again as I had arranged for my friend Jackie to call round to discuss fabrics for a cushion she has comissioned for her sister. Then I rushed back to school to pick up Fred and Daisy, called in on Daisy's friend who was off poorly to give her a comic and then went back up to collect Dorothy from her guitar lesson. She then had Brownies! So it was a rushy-around day.
My next post will be No.50 and I plan to have a little giveaway so I am playing around with some ideas this morning for that. So watch this space. Lucy x
P.S. Thanks for all of your amusing comments about Dorothy's doll - perhaps we should call her Peg, not Annie! What made me laugh most was the fact that I wasn't even trying to be funny! The doll was made from a kit and we have genuinely lost one of her stripey legs! I suppose I could make her a plain one - then she would really fit in with our family as we all wear odd socks!
P.P.S. I have changed my "name" for commenting on other people's posts to "Lucy Locket-Pocket" to avoid any confusion with "Gill at Lucy Locket" who already had that name when I joined blogger with "Lucy Locket Recycled Her Pocket" - I just didn't realise until it was too late that there was another crafty "Lucy Locket" blog.
