New project

I admit it.... I LOVE new projects!!! And for some reason I seem to love new projects more when I really need to be working on something else.... Does that sound familiar??
Anyhow, yesterday after work I really "needed" some quality sewing time, to get a change from what I SHOULD be working on....

So I decided to make a new Easter tablerunner (I know Easter is late in 2011, but I might as well start... right??).  The pattern is by AnnAKa ( Jula varer helt til påske), and has both a Christmas and an Easter runner.  I started tracing the withches for the apliquè, but only got two done, so two more to trace tonight, and cut all the pieces out.
Now I really SHOULD be working on this:
The embroidery on my new shirt for my bunad (Traditional costume).  My shirt is about 50-60 years old, I inherited it from a Great Aunt, and it is really getting worn out.  I am taking a class to make a new one, just like the one I made for Kristine two years ago, and I really NEED to get all the embroidery done so I can start to assemble the shirt in January when classes start up again.
So I really SHOULD be sitting down doing all this embroidery- but I'd rather be racing away at the sewingmachine.....  Decisions decisions......
