Selfish sewing... fail

It is the end of Selfish Sewing Week and this is all I managed to sew for myself!  A tree for Wonkyville!


Ok, I had big plans for Selfish Sewing Week and I did do some sewing but it was for everyone else!  Ooops - so much for selfish sewing eh?  I made three Artist Trading Cards, three bee blocks, a siggy block and two needle books - all for other people!



Oh and I made some 'shit' for Pennie:


You see, I wanted to clear my to-do list before tackling my own project(s).  I did not deal with the ELEPHANT in the room, did I?  Typical me though - at university I would avoid the big essay and work on ALL the smaller projects first so they would be done and out of my mind so I could then concentrate on the big project but it meant that I always left myself very little time to work on the big project.  This is the story of my life and exactly what I did (or didn't do) this week!!  I had planned on working on my Marcelle Medallion quilt and wanted to make a Skirt Bag from some Ikea fabric I have but I got sidetracked with my to-do list. 

Oh well.  But at least it feels good to cross things off my list :)

What did you sew for Selfish Sewing Week?

I think you deserve a big pat on the back though, cos that's a whole lot of things ticked off that list, by the look of it. Perhaps you should declare this coming week your very own Selfish Sewing Week - and hopefully stick to the plan!
Have a great week either way :-)

You made some really pretty things this week. I finished my ALYoF goal for September, and I'm happy with that.

Gee whiz, if you're this productive for others, imagine how many lovely items you'll knock off for yourself in a week! Chrissie x

I worked on my Marcelle Medallion quilt and made a backpack for my son. So I had a half selfish sewing week :)
