I have officially lost my crafting mojo. Having worked 4 out of the last 5 days at my real job, I have had little time to do any crafting...dealing with 2 little ones after coming home from work doesn't leave you with much energy! What little energy I have had has been devoted to a few horrible attempts at creating- a crochet beanie that turned out to be the size of my daughters doll for instance. It was intended for my 2 year old- yikes. Looks like baby "elise" (the doll) will be getting a nice xmas present this year. ha ha. Two attempts at following an awesome sew along hosted at Craftiness is not optional resulted in improper cuts of fabric- discovered after the shirt was about 4 inches too short- yikes. I need to be more patient. While I am tempted to toss all of this rather than take my seam ripper and fix my mistakes, I will gently put these aside and step away! No pictures of these disasters that is for sure...
I need a break.
I will assume my ineptness is due to exhaustion not a permanent loss of my skills? Does this happen? Mistake after mistake...I need a breather to recollect my thoughts. Or, maybe just a nap?
One plus is that I have a few great ideas for the upcoming cold temps...and some great wool finds at the thrift store that I am hoping to transform into some cold weather accessories...to come soon! Hopefully the next two days off will be good for me- ahh, a breather.
