How do you sew AND keep the house tidy?

Yes, the end of summer is here, and trying to be a good girl, I've cleaned out the living room and got rid of every bit of dirt, and hoovered, dusted, washed. But as I haven't a workroom to sew in, I've allocated myself a corner in the living room with my sewing machine on a small table. This does not a clean and tidy house make! How does everyone else manage? I start making an item and find I've got thread, cuttings and pins everywhere. Truffle doesn't help with her obsession with bobbins and thread reels (I found 3 bobbins behind the settee).

oh I can't wait til we're in a position to buy our own house, with a spare room all to myself! ahhh!

anyhow, the bags are slowly coming along and the xmas craft fayre is drawing nearer! better get my skates on.

Later on

Ok, well I've made dolls (even though some have gone away as birthday presents), and have listed them on (pic on right). I think the photos let me down though, they're no where near professional enough, so I think tomorrow I will try take some more. Other than that a few bags are made up and I have a craft show booked in Mumbles, Swansea before Christmas. I have the day off work tomorrow so plan to get a lot done, and need to go and pick up supplies.

My partner and I have also booked a date for our wedding! Its a year today, and I've been so excited that I've already ordered the dress from and bought the rings off Ebay! I also bought some Russian net to make a veil! I feel like a child overeager about Christmas, oh well!
