The weeks are speeding by at an alarming rate. I'm trying hard to get the time to sit in my little crafting corner to churn out bits and pieces, getting what's in my head, into some sort of woolly reality.
The half term has passed and now it's the run to the finish line of the school year. Goodness me that's scary.
My plan, to be on here less and be in the real world more (so I can get more achieved), has not seemed to have paid off. I am still so far behind it is unbelievable! I need more time. I think we all feel like that though. I have been rushing about here, there and everywhere. Also, walking everywhere, takes a huge chunk of time out of my day. I am trying to adjust to that. Still managing to find time for a little relax in between the hustle and bustle of life though. There wouldn't be any fun to the day if I cut that out totally!
The days are mixed, the weather is mixed.
One day i'm summery......
thick wooly socks....
and my favourite.....a shawl has become a staple...
I am trying to pack a lot in. Apologies for visiting less. I am trying to have strict rules about when and how long I am on the computer each day.
I have been pottering about with crochet. I have ideas in my head i'm itching to get started on. It's all Autumny stuff.
I find I like to work on Autumn/Winter in the Spring/Sumer and vice versa. I wonder what the point is of working on Spring/Summer stuff in the Spring/Summer when it will be finished when the Autumn comes. My head is buzzing and I seem to be flitting from one project to another at incredible speed.
I'm soaking up inspiration too, my brain is overflowing with crafty make ideas.
Trying to balance this all is a juggling act. Sometimes I find myself automatically saying 'no' to Baby Bear when i'm trying to catch up with emails at the computer. I don't even hear what he asks. It's then I just turn it all off and make sure I give him my undivided attention. Sorry if you ask me something and it takes a while for me to get back to you. I do try, but sometimes, I forget where the question was asked and I cannot find the emails. I have been trying to make a better filing system, but some still fall through the net.
So, that's my catch up. Apologies for the hash of photos on this post today. what can I say? I'm lazy!
I'll leave you with a snap of my bargain find of the week.
I seem to be finding it hard to resist novelty salt and pepper shakers. Who'd have thought it! An Ebay bargain that brightened up my day no end. Little pleasures and all that...........!
I hope that you all have a great Friday and a super weekend.
Hopefully soon I might have something to show for all this crafty pottering i've been doing!
