I have to say that life has been a bit tough lately one way or another, which culminated this week in a melt-down from me! I have come back to Coalgate with the boys and engaged in some mindless sewing. The boys have been watching movies and playing with the lego. Apparently Winston Churchill used to lay bricks when he was depressed, well sewing simple seams helps me! Here are three, yes three tops I've made this week. The one on the left is just three inch strips pieced - the fabric is so pretty that it seemed a shame to do anything too fancy with it! Its is theraputic I think to be creating something, something that you can look at later and enjoy. It helps me anyway... along with chocolate, wine and some peace and quiet. Unfortunately I forgot to authorise all the wages last night for our staff and so they will all be supremely grumpy (justifiably) with me. I've been reading "Don't sweat the small stuff" and so today I'm telling myself that 100 years from now it won't matter, actually to be honest next week it won't matter, so I'm trying not to get too stressed about it!
