Positives from this month.
-I finally tried 2 new projects
(embroidery and stamp carving)
and I'm dying to do more.
-I set myself a challenge and completed it
even on those days
that I didn't feel like it.
-I made some projects that have been
on my to-do list for a long time.
-I used up a LOT of scrap supplies.
-I came up with a couple patterns
plus loads of ideas.
-I've always seen my 'slowness' of
completing a craft as a negative.
I now realize that it gives me
time to change the pattern around if I want
or to redo a part that I'm not happy with.
I'd like to do this again next
year but I would change a
few things to make it a
little easier on myself.
The most important would be
to line up all the project ideas
(plus a few extras)
and their supplies
well ahead of time.
This would help if the
like when my sewing machine
broke down or when
I underestimated how
amazing the Olympics would be!
Also I would start one day early
so that I could take project
pictures during the sunny hours
so that at least some of the
colours would be true.
So I would highly recommend
this to anyone who's considering it.
Next year I'd like to sign up for
the official Thing-a-day.
And thanks to my cheering section!!!
