Hits: 60

Among my many interests and titles I am pleased to say that I was a crafter.

Girls eyes will light up when they see these tiny purple nut cup hats ona head band Each hat is unquely hand crafted.

I love imagining the end product then breaking down the steps to complete my creation. BUT, I hate 3 things about the process of crafting.

  • I have adjusted to the fact that at mage I need glasses to thread a needle.
There was a time when I could thread any tiny needle with out the use of glasses.

3 THINGS I Hate about Crafting:

  1. I can’t SEE where I laid my glasses without a pair of glasses over my eyes.
    Do you see where I left my glasses? I know I laid them down right here! Can you relate?

    2. Even when organizing little pieces parts, doo-tads and trim, one little tip over seems like a wreck of my train of thought. I hate that when it happens. Oh well! This time it wasn’t straight pins spilling.

    Crafting is messy at times. OK! I admit it! For things get way more messier for me. I'm ok with creative flow. However other can be annoyed by progress messes.

    3. I hate it when I run out of bobbin thread 6 inches away from the final seam. There is no way to peak at the bobbin when a seamstress is merrily sewing a long.  “It is just not fair!” a 5 year old was say. but I’m 65, so I mumble that staetment under my breath to keep up mature appreances.

    Have you ever run out of bobin thread short of completing a sewing project? How does that make you feel?

  • The word HATE is a strong word for feeling distracted when our creative juices are flowing in how creative crafters heads. THAT word did get your attention didn’t it?
  • Won’t you help me out by sharing your feelings when thing go awry when sewing, crafting, cooking or simple making a family meal.

Update: I had to stop crafting. I had finger injuries and carpel tunnel. You know what they say, “it is better to have loved then to never have loved at all.” I loved sewing.
