(oops, I had my days messed up this was actually posted on a thursday! I am sure it was still wed somewhere!)
So last night I decided to finnish sewing down and cut up the scrap fabric I had made with the intention of turning them into inchies for various … stuff.. Now this was a great idea and I grabed an equally scrappy piece of interfacing which I had torn from a bag I made and then unmade, I had been using the medium weight interfacing with fusable webbing or just sewing it in depending on what I had been using it for..
Now I had gotten to the point of cutting it up and part way through cutting the 1 inch strips I had a sudden realisation.. there were areas that hadnt been sewn down and were coming off… Then after frustratedly realising that i had to sew down some of the smaller pieces I suddenly wondered why I hadn’t just ironed them down in the first place.. Quite possibly the heat.. lesson learned however! Use the fusable webbing! These aren’t a write off though I am sure I will use them for something!
Soft cover for a book which will be up for sale when its complete, I will link to it when its done 🙂
The dress panel for the Mother Winter sculpture, partially completed.. And an a5 binder with the first mailer I am doing for both my niece and nephew, I have gotten them each a a5 binder which I will be personalising for them (pictures will come) there will be numerous pages which I will be redoing on the computer, with small projects like the map drawing one, coloring pages, stuff to make/wear and each month will have a theme.. I will be sure to post the completed images when it gets to that point.
On another note, I am not one for resolutions and hope people don’t see my changes as a -resolutions-, to me these aren’t resolutions, they are commitments to my life interests family and stuff I have thought about and planned to do over the last year, being the first year in studying and adjusting to the change in life style, my surgery (which has done what it was ment to so far) I have started to move onto projects I had planned and really feel passionate about, I am hoping by doing these and keeping up with them that they will become habits, things I do by nature like alot of other things, I get up, make a cup of tea and read blogs in the morning, after that either I go to the gym (I am just taking it easy while my tail gets used to the movements again, it is still strange being limited in that way but its WAY better!) or work on course work or something else like my old ladies, the postcards, or something for someone.
I have alot of unposted projects, some because they are PIF, (there is still more spots left if you want to jump on it!) So the hopes behind this year is to throw away all those inhabitions I have accumulated over the years.. Like feeling strange taking pics on walks.. Or picking things up off the ground (Lately I have taken to picking up crow feathers and rusted items) So there are alot of changes and they aren’t resolutions, they are life choices..
Am I being overly ranty about these not being resolutions? I respect people making changes in thier life, but they shouldn’t limit changing things to this time of year.. If there is something that you aren’t happy with in your life the best time to do something about it is quite probably now. You have thought about it. Will it bug you more later if you don’t change it? And as the saying goes… There is no such thing as tomorrow! (but with that said don’t rush things, remember to relax and take in the world!)
Ok thats the end of my rant.. you are free to resume what you were doing 😀
