ch more time to browse things and one or two things have dropped into my craft basket for use at a future date that is. I am getting things sorted for doing my patchwork. Getting fabrics in place discovering what a Jelly Roll is and how to turn them into quilts. I have also read and saved a tutorial
My Go Accuquilt cutting equipment is starting to arrive and I can see I will be making my own Jelly Rolls in due course. However we will start slowly with recycling the shirts. I have also ordered different sized bias binding making tools so that I can also make my own bias tape. Something which I was taught to do at College when studying my dressmaking o level. So on a practical level I am starting to get organised. However have not had time to do anymore to my hot water bottle covers although am part way through the needlepoint although have not done any since the last post. I am in theory trying yo take control and organise things on every level in an effort to find yhings when I need them on a paperwork front and on a crafting level. My foot is starting to settle down and I will shortly be returning to work.
I am hoping that being organised and keeping on top of things ie a monthly paperwork night putting filing away and recognising bank accounts will give me more time to be focused on my crafting for the rest of the month especially after Oh resumes his fishing. I have realised I need the crafting time for my sanity as much as anything and I have enjoyed that precious me time not only to craft but also to think and mull over things. It has in its own way brought a sense of peace and clarity. Something which I have not had in a long time which has been very restorative in itself. When we are bumbling along on the wheel of life sometimes because we are so busy trying to deal with situations or events that are foisted upon us that we do not always see the bigger picture. For me that is time to do my crafting and create and make the things I want to in an effort to make my home very individual but very comfortable. I have the skill set and ability to do so and for me its now about making the time to do the things that are important to me. That is what I am aiming for in any event.
Do you have similar goals or something different you are aiming for. You are more than welcome to share here if you want to.
