I've got so much to do and loads of time now the children are back at school to do it in but I don't seem to be getting anywhere fast!
I have been feeling a bit under pressure as so many of you in the Bunny Hop swap have been making amazing creations already!
I spent yesterday messing about with a new bunny design which I need to get finished off. I was trying to design her dress myself too but I ended up adapting the pattern from Rosalie Quinlan's My Dolly Bekkie and just enlarged it a bit and changed the bodice bit.
The bunny is not perfect (and needs her limbs stuffing and stitching on which is why I haven't put a picture of her here yet) but I'm quite pleased with it as a prototype!
I have lots of things I need to send out to people - my PIF gifts for one (I know I'm allowed a year to do it but I should have got on with it by now!); Kitty's doll (her hair is done and the fabrics chosen for her dress!); a thank you gift for Anna (the things I want to send are made but the biscuits got eaten! I may just send the handmade goodies on their own!) one for Nadine from ages and ages ago; one for May Kristin (which is nearly finished) and one for Vicious Chicken - not to mention the things I should be sending to Lesley!!! (at this rate I will be saving the postage and taking them down to her in London next month!)
I really want to get these gifts finished and sent but I get to the point when I feel guilty about them being late so I put them off even longer! Does that make any sense?
So, sorry everyone! I haven't forgotten - I'm just really bad at getting things done!
Another thing I have been needing to do is update my Etsy shop so I am pleased to say that at least that has been done today.
Here are some of the wallets that went in
Okay, so only 6 went in but the collage wanted to do 9 pics which is why there are repeats!
Finally, the very good news is that after last week's miserable half pound weight loss, I went to Weight Watchers today and had managed to lose 5LBS !!!!!!! Woooohoooooo! That means I have lost 11.5lbs now (only another 51.5 to go.................!)
I'm really pleased about this so I hope I can keep it going!
Hope you are all having a lovely Tuesday - preferably less windy than up here!
P.S. only a few Valentine's swap parcels left to arrive but keep letting me know when you get them and please blog about what you have received (if you haven't done so already) so that you can publicly thank the person who sent it to you.
