Chaos and Calm
The chaos is the Christmas challenge ..not because it is a pressure thing but unlike most I have until Dec 1st to get all mine done as a postie our lives become a nightmare after that date.
Yesterday we were having a quiet afternoon, me sewing,Bob doing paperwork,the phone rings it is the post office owner, the courier had dropped off a huge load of large parcels,so off we go and deliver to the town on a Sunday afternoon,which I might say ended up being a delight as everyone is excited to be receiving parcels on a Sunday!
Anyway I am getting off the subject(aren't you glad your not sitting having coffee with me,my conversation is all over the place lol)...
I think the secret to getting lots done is to have an area where you can sit any time you have five minutes and do a little bit of sewing, I am blessed enough to have an area in our living are,under a window where my machine just sits awaiting for me to plop down and run a few rows along,so when you see what i got done this week for my challenge it will not be showing off it will be necessity that I got so much done, and they are all simple items thus far lol.I was left an overlocker by Kates MIL and I said the other day I think I am having an affair with it I have never had one before and it is making things so much easier.
Anyhoo here is a pic of my area,as you can see it is chaos but today it can be tidies up ready for the next round of sewing..I am not proud of the mess!
I find that having the big desk in the corner is just so easy this morning before i go to work I will do 3 hems on the top of surf bags...
Have a great day and blessing abound from my home to yours.
