I'm leaving soon..

.. well tomorrow, only problem is the big list of things to do that are not checked off, so this is what I have to finish today.
Matilda Jane is minus a sleeve and so far the button search has been fruitless, though I do have ribbon for the back. All the sewing of hems might be a long job though! AND I am kinda worried she might be a bit on the neat side, AND do I have time to wash and block her, not really! Just a little problem there!
Skirt to match MJ, finished apart from a little hand-sewing and cutting all the loose threads off.
Jacket, currently still in 2 layers, lining and wool have to be sewn together and one buttonhole done. I have a choice of buttons as I couldn't make up my mind when I button shopped for the jacket so have 5 to choose from!

I also have to food shop/cook for today and tomorrow as Jim will be at work, not that I think my boys are capable of starving themselves to death, it just might keep the arguing down to a quiet roar.
See you when I get back, have a good weekend...tchao

Why worry about the arguing - you won't be there to hear it ;0)

Excellent - I'm dying to see your MJ. Might spur me on to start mine.

If you're still planning the SECC for Saturday, let me know what time. I should be able to sneak in for a quick visit !

looking forward to seeing you - I remembered to pack the Felted Tweed!

A quiet day at the show today due to the Rail Signalmen on strike - it was fun to have time to talk to the stall holders and look at the exhibits.

I even managed to knit myself a hat during the day - bet it won't be like that on Saturday
