Free time...what's that?!

A couple of nights ago both Lucky Sew and Sew and Thor's Threads went mental and we had so many orders in that one day than we'd normally get in a week! So i've been a busy bee cutting our orders and Christmas presents when I can and sewing them up frantically.

Last night from 7pm til 10pm I managed to put together and overlock 5 pairs of knickers and completely finish 3 of those including elastics and bows etc, and also put together and overlock 2 pairs of tap pants. That's a record for me. Especially as I also had to take Logan to the loo twice and settle Rori back to sleep once after my noisy overlocker woke her up. Oops. It can't be helped though really, my sewing space is actually a nook at the top of the stairs, on the landing, outside everyone's bedrooms. It's annoying as it's small and dark and wakes Rori up if I overlock too vigorously, but it's also nice as I get to hear Logan playing and singing to himself when he's supposed to be going to sleep. His favourite song to sing at the moment is 'Be Bop A Lula' which is heart-meltingly cute.

I'm currently waiting on a large order of yummy jersey to make into Hudson Pants when I get a chance. I'm starting to get worried that i'm not going to be able to finish up all of my Christmas present sewing in time though, especially if the orders keep coming in- something I hadn't factored into my tight sewing schedule.

In other news, Logan had his first settling in day at nursery today which he loved, and Rori is now pulling herself up to standing on things and moving along them. Stop growing up, children!
