Letter from nowhere

I haven't blogged for goodness knows how long.

There was a time when I had all the free time in the world, where deadlines did not have to be met, and where crafting was always right there. In recent months, I have taken on a bit too much. Undertaking 2 qualifications, and 1 certification program has gotten the better of me.

Gone were my nights of sitting in front of the tv knitting.
Gone were my weekends of going out or of staying home to do some sewing.
In its place was long nights in front of the laptop. Weekends spent at libraries.
Gone was the CHOICE to decide what I wanted to do.

I've been on auto pilot. Trying to get through one deadline, or course, or assignment after another.

3 down, 2 to go.

When I had the choice to do things, I wanted to blog.
I enjoyed writing about the process of crafting , and I especially loved showcasing the latest project. However, in the past few months, I've felt obliged to blog, rather than it be something I wanted to do.
I'm physically and mentally exhausted at the moment.
But I've started crafting again.
I've started sewing, and I've started to knit again.

Hopefully, I'll also feel the urge to blog again.
Not because of obligation.
But because it's something I want to do.

Twinkle Sews

I got my Twinkle Sews book in the mail this afternoon. Overall, a few cute tops and dresses I'd make and some very blah skirts. Given the price to pattern ratio though, I think it's a pretty good buy. I haven't actually made anything or read the instructions etc, but here's an overview of the patterns in the book for anyone whose interested. (Not the greatest, but i'm in a rush to get to netball)
