A few days after the deadline, but finally my Vintage Christmas Swap parcel is ready to go to my swap partner. I decided (today) to make a stocking from a lovely 1950's fabric I had with a contrasting pink polka dot lining and some matching rick rack. I popped all the packages inside and now fingers crossed that everything arrives in the USA safely and before the big day!
My urge to be creative is so strong that sometimes I have to just leave everything and sew. Hence the kitchen is a mess, we ate factory made quiches that could be heated up in the oven (an absolute no no in this house as we have our own eggs to use up), my poor baby fell asleep in her highchair during supper as she hadn't had a nap and my ironing pile is out of control! I often wonder when I look at the blogs of 'perfect' women, who seem to have the most beautifully ordered homes and yet create the most wonderful things on a regular basis, how do they do it? Are their homes chaotic too? Are we all conspiring in the myth of the 'perfect' woman? Or is it just me?
