While I twiddle my thumbs

Thought it's time again for some to-do list making while there's a lull in the market sewing. I'm beginning to realise I have the attention span of a wonder I cannot sew several smocks in a row. I'm always looking for something small and new to make in-between.

So for the next few days, I must make time to do some:

(1) new smock listings on Etsy
(2) laundering of a whole load of linen and japanese fabric
(3) photo taking of our dining room table and chairs to flog on eBay (decluttering exercise)
(4) summer bloomers for the bub, my guinea pig
(5) one sample linen smock
(6) figuring out on what to make my little cousin for her birthday

That's enough, I think, to keep me busy. And those smocks above are now on Etsy as I speak. I've also taken new photos of the other smocks to re-load and re-fresh the look of the shop. You'd think from my marketing background, I'd remember to do this earlier. Nope! Ahhh well!

Okey dokes! Time to actually do something with the day......cheerio!

Ohh those lists, mine seem to get longer every day. Happy sewing and washing and Etsy-ing!

I have lists everywhere and I still don't know what I am supposed to be doing.

The smocks are looking beautiful. May I ask where you buy your linen from? I am having a wee bit of trouble trying to get some.

Are you able to back up your statement that you 'have the attention span of a gnat' - I would like to know how long a gnat's attention span is?

Oh those smocks are just so adorable, and I love the colors too.

So brave - sharing the list. I'm gathering up the courage to go public with a list - but it's so long. You've inspired me to just get it out there. One project has been hanging around since 1995!!! That one really needs some attention but I just keep getting distracted by other things. BTW - gorgeous smocks.
