These are my efforts for the weekend. Some Ipod cosies for my partner and a friend. I made up the pattern (if you can call it that) myself. Just measured up the Ipods and croched up a strip wide enough and long enough to be sewn into a double compartment for the Ipod and head phones. I very pleased with myself.
I am also pleased with myself about something else. I have decided not to go ahead with having a market stall in May.
I am enjoying my crafty journey so much at the moment. I feel really creative and inspired, and have a million ideas and projects that I want to try. One day I definitely want to make a career out of being a art/crafts woman and for the first time I see that it is possible.
However, having realised all this I also realise that I don't have to rush. And I have been rushing. Putting lots of pressure on myself to get it all moving straight away. Listening to well intentioned friends telling me I should be selling my stuff. The end result was that I didn't really want to do anything creative at all. It all felt like such a chore.
So, no more rushing. I am going to enjoy this time for me because it feels like such a gift to have the time and space to be crafty and creative. I know that the rest will happen exactly as it is meant to happen.
