In my attempt to get back to crafty, I spent this week thinking more about
the when and how. I used to go to a weekly meet up but in recent months, post move, I have found that time is not on my side when it comes to crafting. Or is it? I think that the truth is that inspiration is lacking! Time can be made, and most certainly shall be as I am starting to loose my mind, but inspiration and the right workspace has to be available. I am never going to pick up that incomplete embroidery project if I have to get up and dig through boxes in the garage that are probably now spider hotels *waaaaaaa.*
Aside from the normal school runs, housework and shopping, this week was focused on comforting a feverish Littlest B who suffered with a cold for a couple of days alongside a few teeth trying to push their way through. The 'jobs' I tried to achieve were planning my trip to the craft shows in March at the NEC in Birmingham (more info soon!) and clearing my desk. I felt that if I had a clear desk, this would make it easier to have 'quick' blog sessions, prepare for my new VA venture and provide a calming work base for me to focus on what is next. I think this is how I work best.
I had a think about covering some drab looking folders, how I might make a file tray and I also discovered that the shelf under my desk would hold my sewing machine nicely! I haven't play with it for ages and now I can just grab it out quickly. And...
What could I possibly get done in the next week?! What are your current sewing projects? Are you looking forward to the #GBSB
I hope you have had a fab January and that February is looking more fabulous!
