Last minute frenzied behaviour

True to form, I have done my usual panicky running around trying to get all sorts of things done before we head off for a short break.

For instance... that tunic seam that's been needing to be mended for weeks - it needs doing now!... the seedlings that have needed tending for days - let's do it now!... form to fill out... photos to take... what is it about going away that gets me running around like a headless chicken? Do you do this, or is it just me? It drives me bananas (and the Mr too, I'm guessing, but he's too polite to say ;-)

Needless to say I had several blog posts in mind this week but none of them saw the light of day... however I will leave you with some pics of a much covetted piece of Nani Iro fabric that arrived in the mail this morning, yay! I hunted high and low for it (it was last year's design so not readily available now) and felt like I'd won the lottery when I finally tracked it down on Etsy. Good old Etsy.

Now I just need to find the perfect summer dress pattern for it. Any suggestions welcome.

OK, there's time to squeeze in just a few more things before we head off ;-) See you some time next week, have a great weekend!


  1. I can understand why you sought it out.It's beautiful.

  2. I love that pattern.
    Just saw this pattern for a summer dress that looks nice:

    I am always a mad woman before we go away trying to get my life organised at the last minute and then trying to pack eight craft projects, books, sketch pads, music! None of which generally never see the light of day. Glad to hear its not just me!

  3. I'm another headless chicken... it doesn't matter how organised I am... there is always 100 things to still be done... arghhh!!!

    Yes that fabric is just GORGEOUS... love it!
    Have a great trip :)

  4. Stunning fabric.
    Well done tracking it down. It'll make a beautiful dress for summer.

    Yep - I understand the running-around-like-a-headless-chicken-before-the-holiday thing.
    That's me too.
    It's exhausting!

  5. I'm pretty sure every family has a headless crook prior to going away. Hope you enjoy your break. Can't wait to see your dress. ;)
