A deadline is a wondrous thing!

We’ve had a busy day Chez Stitches, which always happens when I’ve set myself a deadline.  It’s like some crazy cosmic law smacking me upside the head for being smug.  I had planned to sew all day but Ma was looking at a bungalow as a possibility for moving home, so I moseyed along for moral support. The bungalow is gorgeous and she’ll be moving in within a month, so we headed off to the coffee shop in the park for a celebratory coffee.

Happy news sorted, it was back to the sewing room. And by supper time tonight the Pavlova was finished. Woot!

top 1So, please excuse the shabby phone photo, but The Husband had pizza and a tall glass of something cold awaiting my last stitch. Who was I to refuse?

I’m out all day tomorrow but hopefully this weekend I’ll be able to get some proper photos of the whole outfit for you and I’ll post a full review of the patterns.

Have a great weekend…rumour has it the sun will shine here in the UK. That will make a lovely change.

    Nice! I’m kind of the opposite with deadlines, at least when they’re self-imposed… I rebel against myself. 😉 Enjoy your sunshine and we’ll all be ready to see the Pav as soon as you have pics!

  9. Your pavlova will be great… I really like the fabric. So happy for your mom…sounds like a nice arrangement. I would do anything for pizza…so I am all with you on your priority setting! Though right now I’m so stuffed after a wedding reception I would even consider passing on a pizza offer 😉
