I have way too many interests. Besides all the fiber/textile things I do I want to learn more about computer programing, furniture making and woodworking, welding and metal art, and cooking. I want to have a garden. I want to raise dogs and alpacas.
The problem is the scope of the projects I want to tackle. I want to design and build a wall unit for my living room that will house my yarn and knitting books. I want to build a sewing station for my dedicated sewing room. I have knitting and crochet ideas I want to write patterns for. I want some welded sculptures for arbors and garden art. I want to write the Great American Novel. I want…..
Where to start! I get tired just thinking about it.
The first thing I think, must be cleaning out my sewing room. I have fabric from the 1970’s in there. Can anyone say polyester leisure suit? I’m sure I will never use some of this and maybe someone else can. I have craft magazines from the same era and after going through some of them I know there are only a few patterns or ideas I want to keep.
Once the purging is done I can organize some “kits” for baby clothes and things I had planned for my own wardrobe.
I have all but eliminated daytime TV from my life, but I must start doing things other than knitting during the daylight hours. I often think of things in the evening or at night, but don’t start them then because they might keep the hub awake. (Or worse wake him from a sound sleep.)
One of the effects of mentioning these things here is much like a dieter making a weight goal public–people will be watching. And hopefully commenting. The community out there is powerful, with good ideas and encouragement. I think I am ready to start!!!
