WIYWW.....

Well!! This is an honest start to my day. First confession...we were late getting up. Not like us 'cos nornally we are all up at 7am without fail. It was nearer 7.30 when the bathroom was eventually free for me [the others all have to go out to work and I just have to be 'available' for customers at 8 so not such a rush for me. I do aim not to greet them without drying my hair but what the heck :-) ]





Second confession...This is what my floor looks like after a day's sewing. I'm a very messy worker so aim to hoover every day to keep it to a minimum [and it's all clean and tidy now 'cos I had to make that my first job of the day]. It does of course mean I had a busy day with sewing yesterday so that is a good sign. :-)










Third confession....the reason my floor was sooooo bad this morning was because I spent time embellishing and finishing off my bag instead of hoovering it up at the end of my working day yesterday :-) A girl just has to have some 'play' time.
As it happens I am enjoying my new machine very much and may already have a buyer for my first bag although, as yet, I haven't made the fastening for it. I am so excited.






This is my bead box [you can see it on the back of the table]. I just love the colours and spend a lot of time chosing the right beads when working on a project like this.

I thought you'd just had a wild party with lots of 'silly string'.

Can we see the finished bag - when it is finished of course?

okay, so i'll give you points for the messy floor but that bead box is far too tidy!

My work room floor looks similar! I have nearly finished the mammoth curtain and blind project Wahoo!!!
Maybe I will have time to play soon.

I thought it was that silly string too!!
Loving the look of your bag so far, it looks like your embellisher was a brilliant buy. I'd play over tidying up anyday xx

I think it was a wild part really..hence the lie in! COuldn't agree more about the play time, especially as you work at what has to be done, using your skills to create what you like must be a lovely 'outlet'. So happy you found WOYWW and decided tojoin in!

The bag is looking good ... the bead box is fabulous and the floor ... well it's just a floor and it really does n't matter how messy it is ... until you run out of desk space and have to work on it :0)

Ooh I have one of those embellishers, but I'm not nearly so clever with mine though. The bag looks fab :) Yummy beads too ;)
