I’m going to do that old person thing again & wonder out loud “Where did January go?!”. I think it’s going to be another of those years, the ones that seem to fly by & leave you stunned on New Years Eve that you’re another year older & will have to get used to writing a new date on everything.
As much as I dislike resolutions, I fear I am going to have to make a late one. It is either that or continually disappoint myself and others with my decidedly ridiculous crafty inaction.
I hereby resolve not to enter any sort of crafty challenge, swap or endeavour with a time limit, unless I have already made the item in question. Tas suggested this a while ago, but being me I didn’t listen, thinking “Hey, January is a long month, I mean, it’s a WHOLE month, not like some other months that don’t even have 31 days… as if I can’t make SOMETHING for me in a WHOLE month?!”.
I did draft a skirt pattern. I really did. I even had intentions of making it up. But then it was lost along with any motivation I may have had. No way am I drafting another without a quilting ruler & a French curve. Apologies Carolyn, I don’t even have a sandwich to show you. I shall write my lines 100 times & whack myself across the knuckles with a ruler. I will.
Moving right along… it’s February! Eek!
What does this month have in store…?! Lots & lots!
Punky is going to Gymbaroo for the first time on Thursday, which means I am going to Gymbaroo for the first time on Thursday, and having to drive to, and into, a rather large urban area that I’ve not had to drive in before (I’m rather nervous about both). It’s The Boy’s birthday. We have to pack. I have furniture to paint. A chicken coop to make. A HOUSE TO MOVE INTO. Yikes.
It’s also Valentines Day, I’m not very big on Valentines Day, one should love & be loved every day of the year, but I did find this book the other day that I got in the oppy a few years ago, called ‘The Facts Of Love’ & I thought I’d share some of the pages, they are adorable, innocent & funny all at once.
I hope you had a more productive month than moi, and here is to a happy and exciting February!
