… And keep on sinning! Bad Gal :(
Here dearest reader I lay before you my confession for
the day , the week, ok the year!
In the workplace I am a highly disciplined person. To do lists that are tackled by priority, meet targets and deadlines as NT would I believe attest to. So how come in my home life does chaos rein?
Could it be the Gemini in me? That old two-sided personality … Or maybe the only child syndrome?
The attention span of a gnat quite frankly. Well in truth if things are going well I see it through to the bitter end BUT I can be given to tantrum if things go against me. Not the stamping, hissing type of a teen but the obstinate, petulant sort of a toddler!
Case in point … Hidden in the airing cupboard is a real kimono that I know Del will remember as she offered words of wisdom when I hit my wall. I miss calculated on the belt, as a result just couldn’t turn it through (fabric isvery very old and quite delicate). Rather than be a grown up and listen to my buddy by Re cutting a wider version I hid it! There it has sat for a year … OMG a year! It’s so close to finished but oh no Mrs cut off her nose to spite her face, there it still sits.
Hiding in the airing cupboard
Remember this Del? Another unfinished following yet another tantrum
1 of 4 jobs on the go atm
Unfinished following a tantrum
Stash hidden in DD2 room
Uh Oh! More stash from my reclaimed fabrics from the 40’s and 50’s… Yep in DD2 room
More stuff, buttons of every sort
Ahh pretty stuff, bling MAGPIE gal!
Stuff, just loads of stuff
Crochet heart addiction started last night and just can’t seem to stop!
Not a chance …. No way can you see inside this cupboard
Fragile package by the cupboard in which NOBODY is allowed to go is a couple of cork boards to decorate as Del did. So loved the effect I thought YEP I’m going to do a couple of them for DD2 for her photos BUT because I couldn’t find my staple gun, there they sit wrapped …. This one in my defence is just a couple of weeks old.
On the wardrobe door is the DD1 blanket which is a work in progress, as is the one hour kimono whose neckline is driving me berserk. Theres the tantrum talk again :) All I need to is bind the neck and front edge. Sewing machine is set up, have lovely satin bias from Walthamstow BUT it annoyed me so can’t bring myself to touch it. What’s that all about LOSER!
How shameful is it that I have stash taking up valuable space in DD2 bedroom? Big bottom drawer MINE, top of wardrobe MINE ….. Drawer is Walthamstow, wardrobe is the carefully collected vintage fabrics. Not sure what caused that particular fit of sulks…. Think my brain finds it too painful to deal with so has erased the memory ;)
Attention span so pathetic I even meandered off from the actual pics you need as evidence and took pics of bling and stuff just because they please me. Whilst I say I like order and method me thinks I am also a serial liar (to myself) if I spot a bit of blingage or a doobrie that makes me smile I have to fill a space and believe me, space is limited in my little piece of England. Praise the Lord I married a man who accepts my foibles else I would have been a divorcee time ago!
The crochet heart thing started last night. DD2 has a much-loved cardigan that she just won’t bin so I started some granny square mid DD1 blanket action …. They are cool but then I thought what else could I do so You Tube got it. There I found my desire, very quick but super effective crochet hearts. 7 in half an hour and more have followed this morning. Started stitching to the dying cardigan and at this point am very happy with the result, just a few more to do. Then it popped into my head, ENT kimono, sitting cut out in my living room. Now I love this lady like a sister so should be highly motivated to get it done so why the failure …… It’s Georgette like the kimono of failed neckline!
I lay before you my confession to being a serial starter and non finisher IF things don’t go my way.
Have fingers and toes crossed that I don’t stand alone in this affliction? I seek your absolution dear reader. Am I forgiven?
Happy Sunday x
Update picture …. The hearts and granny squares start the rescue :)
