A bit tardy

The white rabbit could have learned a thing or two from me this month. I know the saying is 'better late than never' but such platitudes do nothing to assuage my guilt at leaving things to the last minute.

I took part in another fabric swap organised by Ali at Very Berry Handmade last month. I was to send my parcel to Colette over at Colette Moscrop to arrive on her doorstep by the 27th May. Well, if it weren't for the fact that I recently had my birth certificate in my hand, I would be almost certain that 'procrastination' was my middle name because I didn't actually get around to posting it until yesterday. At this juncture I would happily point out all the events that have taken place in the past few weeks that have hindered me and prevented me from entering the post office ...... but I would be lying! Anything I attributed my tardiness to would just be a poor excuse, not a real reason.

What makes my delayed action more difficult to bear is that my swap bundle from Teresa at a time for stitching arrived almost 3 weeks ago!

A fantastic selection of fabrics 

And to rub salt in to the now gaping guilt wound I didn't get myself together enough to blog about it when it arrived.

I always have a bit of down time after a craft fair but I usually have another event lined up so can't take too much time out. Since I don't have another fair until mid July there is no sense of urgency to start making again. I think I may have relaxed just a bit too much.

My time management has disappeared down the rabbit hole! What do I need to eat or drink to get out of Wonderland?

Hi there! I have these periods all the time, I dip in and out of Blogging, but recently I have got in a good routine of blogging on a Saturday. Sewing- I tend to have weeks of not sewing and then suddenly sew like month for a week! In fact I have just written a post about it:) Good luck with your craft fair in July.

Don't worry about being late - I'm just glad the parcel arrived safely and that you're happy with it.
