I got lots of non-work 'stuff' done this weekend. Like many self-employed, small business owners, I can get absorbed in my work so I find myself with no time to do chores and jobs around the house. But then they build up over time and nag at the back of my brain until I just need to get on and do them! So, this weekend, as well as the usual chores, I did some gardening including transplanting leeks, and sorted through the mess that is my wardrobe. After filling four carrier bags of shoes and clothes for recycling and another four bags of clothes and, er, bags, for the charity shop I have a much tidier wardrobe. It feels like I've created a bit more space in my head too. I wanted to get some jobs done before Christmas really starts to kick in and I feel like I can concentrate better now that I've got them out of the way. Perhaps the weather is making me want to do the autumn version of a spring clean!
Above is a snap of some personalised fabric bunting I made for a friend this weekend. I haven't sewn in quite a while so it felt good to flex my creative muscles in a different area. She's giving the bunting to a relative as a gift so I just hope they all like it!
