Thoughts of Spring (in the depths of Winter...still!) and a meditation on Works in Progress
I know that people in the UK are famed for their obsession with the weather. This is a fact and one which I am not going to dispute. I am going to conform to this stereotype and talk about the weather (briefly). As I write, there is a covering of snow outside with a freezing wind coming from Siberia and winter has definitely decided to show it is not over yet. So, to cheer myself up, I shall allow my thoughts to stray to lovely Spring-like patterns of material.
As you know, I am someone who likes to have lots of hobbies and projects on the go. This is all very well, but having so many things that I enjoy means that I have to spread my time between them and consequently, there are many, many works in progress. I do occasionally finish some of them, but there are many more in my head as well as started and not finished. You may remember that I did make some Christmas bunting which I actually finished and was pleased with, despite some slight problems with measuring. I had a brainwave the other day and rashly suggested to Chris how nice it would be to have seasonal bunting to add some colour to our rather neutral sitting room. He agreed and off I went to order some material to add to the rather interesting stash I already have (much of which is not suitable for this project). These photos show the results of my internet shopping.
They are chintzy and floral and gorgeous! I am particularly fond of the paisley inspired one in the photo above. Now all I have to do is to get on with the bunting making. Oh, I also need to make some things for the Spring/Easter swap which needs to be posted this week, oh, and make some jewellery, oh, and then I would really like to learn to crochet so that I can make some flowers and then there is the Kumihimo braiding I need to do and the wirework...*Sigh*...rolls eyes heavenwards...
