I think at times have the attention of a squirrel.
OK, Let me Explain. . .
As you know I love crocheting, knitting and even cross stitch. I feel like I get bored after a while and I need a new challenge. you should see my sitting area now, way too many bags with things needing finishes. I get myself in trouble when someone has just had a baby and I need to do a gift. I have grand babies who have been missing out because I have stuff for them and it’s not been sent.
I love new challenges on stitches or projects but the frustration of late is trying to get things finished, but not starting any more. How do I keep myself focused on just finishing things up.
I know Phil is frustrated with me for all the bags and stuff. I put way to much pressure on myself, when did it stop being fun and start being more like a business in some ways? Am I trying to prove myself to people through my work? I have to thank my Dad and Mom for teaching me to crochet and knit. I can remember crying for hours at frogging to get mistakes fixed and making the project as perfect as I could to give it away.
I love learning new patterns, but I also loving giving them my twist. I never make the same project twice. I just feel like each piece should be unique. That is how Cricket’s Originals came to life. When I lived in Ohio, I started a business that was based on that, unique one of a kind pieces.
The new crochet along just started with the Crochet Crowd but can I really start that with everything else.
Today is the 10th of July and I am setting myself a goal of working on things that need finished for the rest of the month.
I will keep checking in and letting you know how it goes.
