Lately, I swear, I cannot go 10 minutes without thinking of some sewing project I'd like to try. Images of skirts, bags, embroidery hoops, pillows and kids clothes are dancing in my head. Picture my head cut open with little articles of hand-made wonderfulness skittering about in glee. That's my brain lately. My brain on sewing.
Perhaps I'm reading too many crafting blogs, eh? It's a problem! My brain is just running, running, running all the time. Running with inspiration and motivation to make cute things, sure. But a girl needs to relax. And so, my sewing bucket list begins.
I figure if I write these want-to-try-it urges down, I can stop thinking about them constantly. Make way in my brain to notice other things, like how adorable my kids are. (Proof!) Or say, that they need a diaper change -- and probably have for at least an hour.
I'm posting this now and will be turning it into its own page soon. Then I can have it handy, add to it, cross things off, etc. Also, so often I get distracted by the newest thing. Oh, look, shiny! And then instead of making something I've been itching to try for weeks, I'm cutting up fabric for God knows what I just saw on crafty blog XYZ.com.
Is anyone else afflicted with this issue? Sewing ADD?
OK, so on with the list. Here is what I can come up with now. New items will be added with dates, so I can try to tackle projects before they've sat on the list -- and in my brain -- too long.
