Jubilee...

So here I sit at nearly midnight, with my cup of Lady Grey and a very nice fried egg buttie, oh yes tonight I am all about class... seriously though its been a hectic few days... and I am a believer in going with the flow and that flow is pretty fast at the moment so it calls for a late night unhealthy snack to keep me going whilst I finish my post and prepare for the day ahead...
 School uniforms to iron, pack lunches to make, dishes to wash, meetings to prepare for  and dogs to feed etc. Usual Mum stuff.
 Who said the Bank Holiday was a time to relax and catch up... get 'behind' more like... Actually its been a time shared with friends and eating far too much whilst hours have passed by and important conversation of 'putting the world to rights' have taken place while wine was sipped.  My kids have also had all their friends round to play at some stage of the three days and I have had very little time to spend in my sewing room.  A play date sleep over which settled down to sleep at eleven and started again at five the next morning!  More coffee please.
 However, I was inspired to put together a few Jubilee lines when I sneaked off for a few moments in my sewing room, I wasn't going to work on anything linked to the jubilee but I was asked what I had...
 So a few ideas have come together and a few ideas still need to be tried out. The nice thing about this weekend was I had a viewing on my home, so I gave up two days to do housework, 'stuff' was hidden away in boxes, bags taken to the charity shop and a day spent in the garden with some new plants needing homes.  The house was clean and homely. The viewing lasted twenty minutes, oddly the agent did the viewing and it all felt a bit uncomfortable being asked to step aside while these people went through my home, mind you I disliked poking around other peoples home, it feels very invasive.  The viewers seemed really nice but the house isn't for them but it took five days to find that out, oh the stress.  The rush of house hunting for me has slowed down now with great relief, the advantage to it all was I had a lovely clean and tidy house all weekend and all the housework was done... A TREAT!
I could almost hear the intake of breath as they stepped into my dinning room, which of course is my sewing room/studio.

Hope your weekend was filled with fun and laughter and you surrounded yourself with nice people.

Love your jubilee makes ... I'm in the mood for red, white and blue at the moment!

Hope you have more luck with the next set of viewers, I don't envy you such a stressful thing to go through.

Happy Sewing

Your Jubilee things look lovely! I had to laugh at your house viewing story! I moved house 2 years ago, and i always remember the stress of the 3 day house tidy compared to the acutal 10 minute viewing that it resulted in - never again - lol! Paula xx
