The art of procrastination

Of course it is that time of year again… time for me to madly catch up on the marking and planning I left unfinished before running away on my great adventure. The students will descend once more upon the school come the 1st of February and before that eventuality I must first get myself ready.

So that is what this weekend was put aside for but of course as always the desire to do anything but always takes over. At least this mornings effort I can claim was a little on topic. While pulling together my marking pens and settling in to finalise the marks on some joyous Year 8 Mathematics tests I realised I needed a new pencil case, not just a slight need but an urgent oh my god I can not possibly use this pencil case any longer kind of need.

So out came the sewing machine and he box of interesting fabrics. A quick poke around the internet to confirm my suspicions that a simple zippered pouch would suit my needs and was still constructed in the same way as I remembered from my days as a student at high school and I was almost set. A little more rummaging and I had myself some heavy cotton duck to line my pencil case and even some heavy fusible interfacing and a zip! Woot! Operation procrastination pencil case was a go.

It took not very long at all and overall I am quite happy with the results even if I know that in all reality with my obsessive stationery collecting ways this pencil case will be way too small in a matter of weeks it’s still cute and spidery and will at least serve its intended purpose for a while.

Now to finish that planning and marking I should have been doing…

    I love that fabric! Wouldn’t it make a great bag.
    Though I’m also thinking it’d make a really cool skirt.
    I completely understand the procrastination – I’m a pro too 🙂
