Fun in my fabric world....

What would you do?

DS is steadily working through his exams....six done and two to go!
The mood remains pretty even!
So today I thought I might be able to achieve something in my sewing room.
The house is pretty clean, the washing up to date (don't ask about the ironing though...LOL),
my conscience was pretty clear, even had the bills paid!
Off to my room...finished quilting a baby quilt I had been dawdling over...even put the binding on...I am feeling good...off to catch up on a group project I have a bit slow on....hmmmm....a familiar theme here!
Look at this lovely bag of bits waiting to come to life!

THEN!!!!!!!!
DS decides whilst packing up the notes he has finished with that he really would like to delve into the dark cobwebby recesses of his room & tidy up a bit...could I please help??????
What would you do?
An offer like that may not come again in my lifetime!
Well off I went...lots of rubbish bags later & THREE big loads of washing he is feeling happy in a much improved room. We will fine tune it & peer under the bed once the exams are over!
Not how I thought the day would go...but rewarding nonetheless!

Can't knock back an offer like that! Patisserie fabrics are so pretty aren't they? I have a stack cut up ready for Tail Feathers and have recently bought 4 Fig Tree patterns using the fabrics - can't wait to start them too.

I have 2 teenage sons (1 at uni too) and this sounds sooooo familiar!!! I feel for you but know that I would have jumped right in as well.

The Patisserie will have to wait, I would have cleaned the room too. Funny what exam pressure does to kids.

yep you have to make the most of those opportunities, they don't come along too often, and all that Mum and son time - great huh!! He will be leaving the nets one day...

One on one time is great with the boy of the house - you should never pass up a chance for that.
