getting ready..

Ok, please, look past the state of my ironing board..I have been getting little packets ready for the retreat..
Each class has a list of requirements, and so the easiest thing appears to me, to be to bag up each bit separately, so I know I have the bits organised. And, time is getting closer, so, I am attempting to be organised.

Now all I need to do, is to leave all my carefully organised bits at home!

Don't let me do that... I can see myself arriving at the sample swap, with no samples.. arriving at a class with no scissors, or no fabric...

So, just because I look organised- do not expect me to be as organised as this leads you to believe...

So, the classes I am in?
Sewing those curves with EPP,
Portholes
Fantasy fabric bundle
Precision piecing

So, that is what all those little bags are for.. Fabric cut and sorted ready for class. Fingers crossed, I make it!

So, what do I look like?


A bit like this- but, like most people, I think I do not Photograph well- so in reality, I look slightly manic, and panicky, I have changed my specs- so I do not look like that at all any more, I am not really this severe, I can laugh, but, yes, I do look a bit like a witch. I cannot help that, blame the genes!

So, I hope to see you there, if you are going- I will report back on the goings on, when I recover!

You DO NOT look like a witch! And I think we never like pics of ourselves. Can't wait to meet you. I am doing the portholes class too and when I finally get off this computer my plan is to do exactly as you have done and fill little plastic zippy bags with my class bits and bobs. Problem is, I've been planning to do that all week but have been too busy to make the decisions. I shall be spurred on by your organisation and hope to fill at least one class pack before bedtime!

See you soon!

As someone who has been lucky enough to meet you irl, I can honestly say you do not look like a witch!!! I'm very sad I won't be going this year but maybe we can go together next year? Great organising :)

I'm so sorry I won't be seeing you in real life Rachel! You don't look like a witch at all but you definitely do look organised!

You really don't look at all witchy, although those bags are almost supernaturally organised to me! Fingers crossed you'll remember everything.
