This photo gives a pretty good snapshot of what most of my house looks like at the moment - piles of fabric which have been rifled through and abandoned, half-finished bags, zips and interfacing all over the place and, of course, small threads stuck to the whole family's clothing and left behind on each tread of the stairs. The reason for the mess? My last-minute preparations for the Wemake fair in London this coming Sunday, 22nd June. I find myself increasingly compelled to visit the Wemake blog to look at the clever countdown widget, which as I type tells me that there are only 6 days, 13 hours, 5 minutes and 19 seconds remaining till the fair on Sunday ... and counting ... Panicked? Hmm, just a little! I have a list of things to do as long as my arm, and I'm not really sure how it's all going to get done.
Still, out of the chaos, a few half-finished objects are beginning to emerge. Like a row of bags with bamboo and wooden handles. Not finished, but almost there ...
... and another soon-to-be-beribboned clutch. This is one of a batch of four, but seemingly they're going to be left unfinished this evening as I'm running out of the right colour thread. I remained surprisingly calm at this discovery - I'm going to adopt the approach of sewing faster in the hope that this will make the thread go further. Wish me luck!
All this means I'm very behind with my blog, replying to comments, and popping in to visit everyone else's blogs. I'll be back soon! Thanks for all your comments in the meantime, and I'm really looking forward to meeting those of you who said you might pop in on Sunday!
Hope you've had a good weekend!
