To Do List

Happy Friday!

I was just sat thinking of my nice non-interrupted weekend ahead of me and what I want to get done. I started writing a list in my head but I felt the need to write it down (mainly so I can tick it off!) and I thought I would make the list official by publishing it on here! I may make this a regular feature - if I remember!

I love lists, I write them at work ALL the time but I don't seem to write them at home as much, I am hoping this means if I cross some off I will feel a bit more accomplished. At the same time sewing is for pleasure so I don't want too many deadlines! I like breaking down tasks into managable chunks which obviously creates a very long list of 'To Do's' but crossing them off is soooo satisfying!

    1. Add button holes to V2 of Seamwork Osaka

This is all I can rattle out right now, I am sure this will change when I see some pretty fabric...

Have a productive weekend everyone :)


  1. Oh my goodness, there's ambition for you. You are so organised. I have lists for weekends but they tend to be of the sort that goes like this-
    1. Make dress.
    (this includes finding where on earth I have stashed the pattern for dress, same for the fabric, discovering I do not have matching or right kind of thread, likewise zip and interfacing or machine needle, finding my shape has changed since last made one like this or discovering I really need to make a toile for this, realising I need to pre-wash the fabric- and this is even before I have tried to lay out the fabic for cutting and attempted to get the grain straight to do so)
    2. Get partner to help mark the hemming line - this is sometimes the most difficult bit because he usually has his own weekend tasks although this weekend he is poorly (hope I don't catch it) and therefore not available.
    Also there is never really anything such as a free weekend, something always crops up - such as a partner needing cossetting.
    Good luck with your list.

    1. haha you do well in getting some help with hemming! My partner wouldn't be helpful in that department!
      I am not aiming to get them all finished, I think it really helped though, I will be keeping it up so I think this will become a feature around here :)
