This past week has been a real downer in the creative department. I’m hoping to shake that off sooner rather than later (a phrase a former boss used ALL THE TIME to the point I cringe every time I hear it or use it myself).
After sewing up the snowflake braid top, I hit the wall. I also came to the end of the applique flower-black flannel program and knew I had to write up ACCURATE finishing directions and package up PILES of finishing fabrics. I don’t necessarily think I am a procrastinator, but I will admit I am a dreader of things. So I have been away dreading and doing and feeling overwhelmed. I’m about halfway done with packaging up the piles o’ fabric and I’m hoping the finishing directions are accurate. Almost there.
And while these things are going on, I try to conjure up fun little things to do. Small diversions that won’t take up gobs of time. Yesterday I made a Park Slope smock/apron for a certain household third-grader. I will have to get her to model it soon.
I did this today–which goes back more than a year ago:
It is also a work-related to-do, so I did try to stay focused with my fun.
With that, I hope you are all well and I hope to be back soon with cheery-business. Gosh, it looks like the fixing up and the painting of the garage that has also been going on is finished–I would post a picture, but it’s still not photogenic. Mmmm, grey worn out garage, how lovely!
