Nothing like a deadline...

No there is nothing like a deadline to help me focus...

Here is the completed scarf for the birthday girl's party  tonight (notice the all important word 'completed').
Clare and I met when we were 18 and shared a flat in our last year of Uni - first time out of home for both of us. It's amazing to think back on those years and realise just how long ago it is...
She didn't want any presents, but I couldn't pass up the chance to make her something special, and especially in these colours, which have her name written all over them!
I'm part of Vic's brilliant Here Comes the Sun swap and have so many ideas for things I have already cut out 3 potential projects...mmm having to choose may be a problem...and I did order some fabric that screamed 'Springtime' at me...all by September 1.

And of course with the 100 Posts/1 year of Blogging giveaway (closing at midnight Sunday - if you want to enter), I have been making a few crochet brooches and I am adding a quilted/sewn surprise to the mix as well...which had better get finished in time to send off to the lucky winner...

So there are the deadlines...I'm off to find some focus...

thanks for taking a peek over the fence...
