I love to Blog!

I love to blog!

I love to craft!

I Love to love!

I found a recently written list of my UFOs ( unfinished objects). It made me smile as this list has not ( or hardly) altered. OK I’ve ticked off a few, but at the same time I’ve added a few. It is only with considerable effort that I have not added more UFOs (or WIP works in progress). Actually if these PhDs (Projects half done) were a visible mind map of my brain activity it would look more complicated than a pile of unravelled yarn. I constantly look, imagine, desire, seek inspiration for more projects whether sewing, knitting,crochet, fabric art, decorated journals, etc etc

Ive got all these thoughts going round in my head and what am I doing? BLOGGING! Well the blogging does help me to focus. Apart from inspiring, me these multiple craft blogs help me to channel my ideas. The BIG problem is that I am constantly demoralised by how prolific these fellow bloggers are. They churn out multiple finished garments, up cycled items and cleverly altered crochet. Or do they??

Another thing that I constantly do is make lists! That brings me back to the original paragraph in this blog.

My Current UFO List:

1) Gorgeous green sweater using Rowan Mohair Haze.

2)Hexipuff quilt -Bee keepers Quilt

3) Christmas Scarf for DD

4) Hexigon cotton quilt.

5) Nearly completed Village Quilt

6) patchwork quilt which only need binding.

7)  up cycled jewellery roll

8) Skirt to be sewn

9) Nepal sweater

10) Felt appliqué tool bag

On the subject of lists I was interested to read a blog Dream big,Dream often by Daniel Ray. He has published a post titled “Wealthy habits vs Poor habits-statistical data”. Within this blog it states that:

“81% of wealthy maintain a to-do list vs 19% of poor”

Now I’ve got my multiple lists so where is the wealthy?

Victorian Pier

Standard

imageimageimageWe spent today walking along the promenade at Colwyn Bay. Benji the dog enjoyed a run along the beach with sand between his paws. We passed the soon to be demolished Victorian Pier. In it’s hey day a tribute to Victorian engineering and a veritable pleasure palace. It was opened in 1900. The pier has been embroiled in a political and legal arguement for the last decade or so. This has resulted in an order to demolish the pier before nature demolishes it for us. It is a great pity that this pier could not be saved but costs seem to far out weigh the benefit. It is goodbye to this once fine example of Victoriana. OK so that’s my “vintage” rant over.

Not much crafting but I will get out my knitting later. As usual I spend much more time thinking what to craft than actually creating.

Today was certainly a walk along the beach sort of a day, sunny, warm, happy.
