A Bit Of A Do-2!!!

This is the sum total of a hard days work yesterday.
100 DL cards folded, scored and trimmed.
100 black layers retrimmed to fit slightly different front panel.
100 cream layers designed and printed then trimmed.
100 hearts assembled.
3 fold insert designed but not printed yet as I need some ivory paper.
Plus one meat and potato pie made for Mr Manics lunch for!!!
My arms felt like cooked spaghetti after that lot.

Today I have treated myself to some online browsing for fabric.......there is just too much out there and I can't make up my mind. Besides which I do like to see what I am buying so I think I shall get together a list of patchwork shops in our area and plan a bit of a day out with DD.

Had a lovely day on Saturday with Ruby Doodle and family. Lots of wedding discussions going on. We finalised the design for the cupcake tower which they are having instead of a traditional wedding cake. That means I can start and order things like the stand, cases and decorations etc.
Saw Ruby's bridesmaid dress. She is going to look like an angel.
So it's all coming together now and I just need to get the invites put together so they can be sent out mid August.

For the rest of today......I need to tidy my workroom, cook tea for DD before she goes to work and then a quick tidy in the lounge and bathroom. Back at work tomorrow so I also need to sort out my stuff for then too.

Never a quiet moment at Manic!!!

Thanks for your visit today.


  1. Wow Sheila, no wonder your arms ache. No one would believe how much you like getting messy looking at that neat arrangement of components for the invitations, Lol!

    I think I'm going to have to chivvy my daughter up as I'm sure she's being lulled into a sense of thinking there's ages yet for her wedding. BUT THERE ISN'T!!!! It's only 10 months which will fly.
