There is nothing new to report as far as accomplishing anything creatively. It seems that 90% of what I've started there either isn't enough to finish it, or my idea just didn't work. It's disheartening to say the least. There are dry spells in everyone's creative life and I guess you just have to work through it.
There are three Special Olympic 2012 scarves completed.
There is a commissioned bag that needs more supplies before I can even sit down to sew it.
There are four hats that need to get done, but not real motivated as there hasn't been payment for the last three yet, even though I know it will come.
A three-ring binder sits with everything ready to cut and sew for a friend.
There is a journal sweater that I started out of slub cotton yarn, but that will get frogged as it's not meeting my vision.
There is a box of wonderful fabrics from a blogging friend that sits by my sewing machine, waiting for inspiration to hit and complete. Want this right, and worthy of sending back out.
So off I go, celebrating mother's day with my memories and maybe some yarn. We'll see.
Something's gotta give! Right? :)
So the weekend BEGINS! My computer desk is actually looking much better after the last two hours of paying bills, balancing a very thin checkbook, and filing the mountain of a pile of paperwork that's been building up. If you watch me on Facebook, you'll know that I've requested a maid. tee hee But this is what I see every morning when I check emails, FB and my favorite blogs. Now that this picture is posted, the camera can get charged back up for a weekend of crafting.
Maybe you can see in the picture all the journals I've done over in the wicker basket and on the side cabinet. Bill's antique clock has sat in that very position for over 10 years on this desk, but he never winds it, so ignore the time it's telling because it's way earlier than that. :) .....a calendar, my Bible, an extra ethernet cord (we don't have wi-fi), an old pair of glasses that are at least 10 years old (for emergencies) and of course my coffee - what more could a gal want? Oh, I KNOW! I want two days of blissful crafting, sewing, knitting or crocheting!
The checkbook shook it's gnarly head at me today and said NO to the Shark floor steamer we so need. But another time, right? God gave me hands and knees to use, so we'll see if I can use Bill's. HA!!!!!!
The camera is now going to go get charged, and it's time to put on my weekend uniform (fat pants and sweatshirt) and get this MADNESS party started! Keep watching - it could be a lot of fun.
