I have several confessions to make.
The first is that I utterly failed at my February sewing machine project goal. The first 6 days of the month went well. I did work on a project every evening, even if it were only for 10-15 minutes. Into the second week and we all had colds and quite honestly, I just didn’t feel like fathoming out and tracing pattern pieces. Then the problem sort of escalated.
The more I thought about those pattern pieces for Faye’s pyjamas, the less I wanted to do them. Every few days, I would give myself a stern talking to and cut out a few more. However, now we’re into March and I still have pieces to go but I have folded them up and put them out of the way. I was sick of looking at them.
So essentially what I’m trying to say is that I was absolutely useless at sticking to this particular goal. I feel so guilty because I have a lot of fabric in my stash and many plans of what to do with it.
And absolutely no inclination to do it.
The more I try to force it upon myself, the more I resist.
This has also coincided with me taking on some courses with my job (that I do really want to do), so the majority of my weekends have been spent on these. I’m also writing six articles this year for my job and I have a lot of reading to do around the subject. My mindset seems to have shifted away from crafts lately and I have no real desire to move it back.
I have done the odd row on my February socks but they are still not finished, although I am on the foot of my second sock now.
I have been working on a blog post about hand knit socks and I was waiting until I could share my newest pair before uploading but the weeks tick by and I’m still no closer, so I have stayed away.
With the best of intentions, I had planned on getting out a blog post every week. However, in hindsight, I just don’t think that’s practical. The thing with a making blog is that you need photographic content. Finished projects. New projects.
I suppose what I’m trying to say is… sorry. I’m just not feeling it right now. When I do have a finished project to share, I’ll be back xxx
