Last night, I got such an incredible creative buzz!!
I felt really positive about how I am not using all the time I have at the moment, to its full advantage!
What bought this on you ask? Strangely it was OH – we were talking about a show that ran a year or two ago here in the UK (Don’t know if it’s still available online guys but do have a look). The show is Kirstie’s Homemade Home, (http://www.channel4.com/4homes/on-tv/kirstie-s-homemade-home/) and it was FULL of crafty ideas and ways to bring crafts to life in a real-life usable environment!
Sometimes I am so grateful that I have a partner that appreciates crafting, so we can talk about things like this – it totally energised me!!
I have all this time and energy and I have decided to use it to push my creative abilities further than I have dared before – for too long I have stitched things as flat almost lifeless art forms, and I now want to get to another level of making things totally mine and original!!
Of course this means I have to finish off a couple of things first but at least I have some plans!
I have 8 letters left on my cross-stitch alphabet sampler – which might not sound like much, but the scale of this piece is quite huge… (Don’t worry I’ll post a pic when it’s done) I have the aim of finishing it in about 2 weeks! I also want to get my scrapbooking up to date by the end of October as well as a couple of other small bits in the ‘almost finished but somehow forgotten’ pile! That’s not going in to making up all the birthday and anniversary cards I need to make (up to the end of the year, to make way for “that which I promised not to mention this month”)… See this is gonna be a busy month! This isn’t even going in to other things I’m doing at the moment, like I’ve got back into baking (I made cheesecake last night and everything) and have some plans for experimental cooking!
Today though, it is shockingly warm down in the South-west of England, and me and OH are going to go out this afternoon and make the most of it, with a couple of beers, and some live music with a friend he’s not seen in ages…
So I guess I’ll be starting tomorrow!
Does anyone have any ideas for a sort of project challenge thing for October?
Do let me know!!
Happy Crafting x
