Except there aren’t any skirts in this week’s space. This week it’s Crafty Procrastination Space. I should have known when I set myself a brief and a timeline and suddenly made this crafty thing feel like WORK that it would all go belly up. At the moment all those body bits up there have me well and truly stumped. For now. While I haven’t yet stooped to cleaning the studio, I have been, ahem, clearing my head, busying myself with all manner of patently essential tasks:
1. The nearly finished, very late, lucky-if-it’s-gifted-before-the-next-birthday bag. It’s waiting for ‘the’ button, which I’m thinking this unfortunately isn’t.
2. Some strike-while-the-iron’s-hot fabric purchasing for a looming kid birthday and the making of a Miss Madeline dress after the music to the ears statement: “I think I’m too big for pink now Mum.” Woo hoo! I’ve only waited nearly eight years pretending to be zen about wall to wall pink.
3. The circle-in-a-square granny towers growing by the week. Shot from this perspective so it’s quite impossible to determine the teetering height of the tower with the unweaved-in-ends. I know. I know.
4. Another teensy, circle-in-a-square inspired Perle 8 experimentery, (in turn inspired by this eye candy).
After all that avoiding the task at hand, it’s fair to say that Mel at From Little Things saved the week. The sweetest ‘inspire’ package arrived complete with some fabric lovely and a moleskin notebook with a handmade cover. Thanks to her, I have been religiously scrawling my own thought bubbles down and there’s a fair chance I’ll be making some sense out of those body bits by next Thursday.
Or ordering another from her online shop which I am sure she will set up once she’s finished gallivanting around cooler European climes. (Lucky chook).
