I really haven’t been able to enjoy any making time much lately as work is unexpectedly hectic and very demanding.
It’s quite frustrating because my workroom also doubles up as my office and I have to look at my lovely fabrics, projects and machine everyday with the thought that I would really much rather be sitting there doing that than sitting here doing this.
But I’m managing to very slowing making headway through my unfinished projects and I haven’t added too many new ones to the pile so far!
I would have made more headway had I not managed to leave behind all the car boot booty, the bias tape, interface and fabrics that I bought last weekend.
Never mind, there is always something that does’t need those things for finishing and I can still be getting on with one or another.
I have had to completely abandon some projects since I first started them and condemn the fabric to the scrap box.
It is because they just weren’t the success I had hoped and I need to go back to the drawing board or I have completely changed my mind about some of them and no longer think it is worth spending the time in seeing them finished.
I get an idea into my head and try different types or versions of the same thing and the results are hugely varied.
Some first attempts work brilliantly and some really need work.
Some ideas will just never be realised successfully but that can honestly be as much of the fun as doing something that you know you can successfully make.
Bags seem to be the order of the day at the moment so I managed to get a handful finished but there are still some that need my time.
I’ll get the next batch of these bags sorted out and then I think I will concentrate on getting the cushions finished before I get on with some more of the little dresses that I love making so much.
