Before I die I want to do one of everything.
Obv I won't ever be able to read every book ever written or pick every wild daisy on every hillside but things like knit and crochet and dressmaking Id like to try once or twice or thrice. My next adventure is actually making a skirt and then after that Im fully committed to making a bloody scarf and finishing it! Ive got some drawstring bags to rack up and also I am going to make a few jewellery pieces. This is all for my Etsy store which I intend to fill in the coming weeks. Im ever so excited but also ever so worried that nothing will sell. I think I need to take heed of the bracelet that my dear friend Traci gave me last year which reads "Believe in yourself". Trouble is, you can hardly do that when sneaky little rat bags put you down every now and then. The bad stuff is easier to believe.
Any old how....these last few days I have become a Milliner. Phillip Treacy can be restful in the knowledge that I am not about to push him from his perch but you know........ I made a friggin hat - OK??!! I love this colour combo and she is called Betty. I have mustard and reds coming next along with greens and oranges. These do not take 3 minutes to make by the way. More like 2 hours of solid finger bleeding and double knitting whilst watching a movie, which I am honest, is a perfect way to relax and be productive at the same time.
Just need to buy myself a crochet book to make some of those easy peasy flowers and get cracking on some wild decors for some other beanie hats in the pipeline. Im certain Ill get sick and tired of them eventually but for now they are making me smile and knitter-ish.
