Galvanised into action, sewing
In a week or so, a friend is arriving to give me a sewing lesson (which I'll tell you more about after the event, obviously) and I just couldn't put IT off any longer. The Grand Tidy - which is a bit of an understatement, let me tell you. Here are a couple of shots now that I am about 90% done Now I haven't hoovered yet, or tidied up completely, but it's a lot better. So much so that I don't have the nerve to show you what it was like before...
But this hasn't been the only tidying in progress. Y'know when you have so many things on the go that your mind just refused point blank to have anything more to do with your knitting? When even the thought of what you'll have to go through just to locate a project is enough to make you lie down in a darkened room for days? No? And you call yourself a knitter....? Anyway, it was like that chez moi - between the chaos in my craft room, and the chaos in the knitting corner something was going to have to give. So I've also been 'rationalising my knitting', which is an oxymoron if ever I heard one.... I now have a basket, albeit a fairly large one, with all of my works in progress contained therein. Well, the ones I could find anyway. The good thing is that I feel mentally 'uncluttered now'. So much so that when the Early Childhood & Society thingy is out of the way I am going to sew this: Isn't that just the best fabric? Combined with this '60s dress pattern I thinks it's gonna be grrreat ;0)
