A couple of weeks ago, the only haberdashery in the whole borough, and I am not exaggerating, closed down. This is bad because finding another one would require a visit up town, but good because it was happening as Sheila (the shop’s owner and namesake) was retiring, not because nobody visited, and because she had a 50% off sale!
I got some little red beads and a bunch of embroidery thread but I haven’t had the chance to even get them out of the paper bag and look at them since I bought them! The photo I took marks the first time I’ve removed them from the place on the shelf that I tossed them after bringing them home.
I have had no time. I have actually had no time for any crafts consistently since October! This is terrible! I want to knit and sew and bead but I can’t, because I have more important things to do. I have loads of books on my shelf, but I can’t read them, because I have more important things to do. I haven’t played the piano for months, which makes me very sad. Although I’ve been beyond the point for years where not-practicing can make me worse, I really wanted to get better, and that involves a lot of work at my level. But I have more important things to do. Same for singing. Same for my novels. Third year for uni sucks. I want to get a good degree, more than anything right now, but I don’t even get to socialise anymore. This is a big case of too many interests, too little time. At least I manage to find time to blog, squeezed in around everything else!
Craft Projects I Would Start If I Had Time:
- Striped bookmarks. To make all my reading more fun.
- Covering my notebook, to make lectures more fun.
- Embroidery on clothes found in charity shops.
- More Mexican icebox cookies.
- Knitting a shawl.
- Knitting a sweater.
- Making more earrings.
It’s my birthday in almost two weeks, and all I really want for it is more time! Instead, I’m asking for some more books I don’t have time to read 😀
