Holiday blues…

So the weekend of the sewing extravaganza never happened! I nearly finished a Tilly and the Buttons Agnes Top but it was looking very clingy and unflattering so I stopped. Then I started a briar t-shirt and stopped because the neckline was all wrong. Then I started another Emmeline tee and just plain ran out of time with that one.
On the plus side I had a lovely holiday! It was only a week and it flew by!! Coming home is always bad, but the first day back at work is done and it wasn’t so bad. Hopefully the rest of the week will fly by!

Not much chance of getting much sewing done this week and I am away in London this weekend, so in the meantime here are some holiday snaps of Porto.

Fabulous food at my favourite Porto restaurant; Museu d’Avo.

The rest of the time we were on the beach!

Any summer holidays planned? Does anyone else set unachievable sewing for holiday targets?
