@Ploshkin you're right, it will only increase your frustration and your DH is none the wiser.

This time last year I announced to my OH that I was giving myself a few days off as I'd been running around cooking and looking after everybody over Christmas as per.

My intention was for him to take over making tea and doing the tidying up and cleaning in my place. He didn't. As far as he was concerned I had gone on strike and he proceeded to look after himself only. Kind of backfired on me  :S

@Sewingsue I've attempted to sew leather it is not easy on a domestic machine.

@Greybird Orange is one of my fave colours, our front room has orange walls and sofas. Don't know if I'd wear it though  -<

G'morning just waiting for the OH to 'get ready' get off the toilet then we're doing the  :woof: walk.

I started and almost finished making an apron y/day, a birthday pressie for my bestie. Her birthday is mid-Feb but I never leave things too late  8)  I'm v chuffed with myself as it has kick-started my motivation and have tentatively made a short project list  :)

Have a good day all

I've had a look through my stash this morning and there isn't as much as I thought. There are some pieces that I honestly have no idea why I bought, and have no idea what they'll be used for  :S

I will tell myself that once there is visible reduction and plenty has been made I can look at purchasing more but to be much more mindful  >:)

G'morning the youngest SS appeared y/day evening for a one-night stay to collect some clothes he'd left here for washing. He goes to his mother's today in York then they're going skiing on Sunday for a week. Even better his dad cooked their tea last night, bacon egg beans and chips   :)  I declined. I'd prepared myself for steak pie veggies and gravy before I knew SS was visiting.

Today I'm going to have a good sort of my fabric stash and maybe even have a cull, I know there's a few small pieces that frankly are no good to man nor beast  ><

Have a good day all

@Lollipop I presume you get paid for all these outfits and costumes you make?!  So look on the bright side, the quicker they are ruined due to a lack of respect the more work you get from it  :)

Edit: read it again and seen your last paragraph - you do get paid. Good  :)

G'morning I'm going out to the market today to pick up a few things. My back feels a lot less sore after drugging myself up for tackling the clear-up y/day  :)

I'm seeing quite a few diaries popping up on here, and am wondering if I should commit myself ....  >:) we'll see

Coffee then pegging out washing

Have a good day all

I too have no idea how much I have, but it is a lot. I succumbed to a couple of set pieces reduced in price from Croftmill last week - 2019  :P  -  but I'm going to really try to use up a lot of the stash this year    :sew:   :trousers:  :frock:   =   :angel:
