It’s school holidays, and usually for me that means catching up on housework, reading a book and visiting family & friends. This time I’ve been doing a few different things … having my gorgeous niece & nephew here for their very first sleepover was top of the list! Nobody asked to go home, no fights and they’re still talking about it … I’d call that a big Aunty win!
Very close to finished my table runner, and I’ve even done a night market at a gorgeous local preschool. Best of all, I’m learning how to action a new project quickly, without overthinking it. Take the lovely little doll in the photo above. I drew up the idea a couple of weeks ago and walked away from it. But today I had the genius idea that if I changed the feet slightly I could turn them into rollerskates! And so my first roller derby themed doll was born this afternoon. I have to say, it feels pretty darn good to actually finish a project the same day I start it, and I have some roller derby friends who will be critiquing her this week.
Last week I had a couple of hours to kill before going out for the day, so I decided that the 3 tubs of fabric under my papercrafting desk would be better living under my sewing desk. Likewise, the 4-hole cubby under the sewing desk would be more useful under the papercrafting desk. I was surprised at how little time it took to swap them over, and while I still have a little shuffling to do to get everything the way I like it, the use of space is much more economical.
It makes me wonder what else I could do in an hour or two? I have one more week of holidays, and while the schedule is busy, I reckon I could do a few more cool projects, and maybe even finish them!
