I really like all of the planning and speculation that comes along with the start of a new year - 365 clean, white squares on the calendar expectantly waiting to be filled with exciting things! The start of a new year feels like a good time to try and put one's own little world right and I suppose that's why so many of us make new years resolutions. However, I didn't make any this year and it's just as well, as we are already to begin March and I still haven't organised myself properly.
I can't seem to find the right groove! This past week I had good intentions, but I've still not managed to finish all I had planned. I tend to change my direction midstream far too often and that might have bearing on the state of my work table . . .
. . . it's a jumble of patterns, fabric, lace and all sorts of odds and sods - in short it's one big mess (I am not one of the world's naturally tidy people). The trouble with working on a whim, is that I forget what I was doing last on a particular item and where I put the lace to finish it! I have some sorting out to do and then hopefully, I'll be on track to finish off some of these projects before the end of next week.
I am also suffering from those ghastly dolly spending withdrawal symptoms.
I would like to order Ah-ra (KID) from Iplehouse (on the right), as a younger sibling for Hanako (my Minisup Hanna), but I'm having a hard time justifying spending the extra 40% to cover the current exchange rates between the AUD and the USD.
We had alovely weekend, Saturday was fairly busy, but yesterday we chilled out by having lunch at the Bentleigh Club and listening tothe Groovin' Easy Orchestra in the afternoon. We also added more inches to our waistline by eating huge freshly baked scones with delicious strawberry jam and whipped cream, while theband played and others danced. :)How was your weekend?
P.S. Just in case anyone is interested, I have just drastically reduced all the things in the CLEARANCE section of my Etsy store.
