It happens every spring. That anxiety about not having enough hours in the day to work, garden, craft, blog, take photos, play with my Blythes, meet up with friends, cook dinner, exercise, ring my parents, sing at choir.
So I've started a routine again.
Ride to work = exercise.
All day Sunday = gardening.
After dark = crafting.
Talk to parents on phone while digging holes in yard.
Who needs friends? Or Blythes for that matter? Or singing? They can wait until summer, surely.
Obviously I don't do well with routines.
Changing the subject to other matters, I have become reacquainted with the ACT public library service. It is really quite fabulous, and much cheaper than spending my lunch hour in Borders or Lincraft (not that there is anything wrong with that). After getting books and CDs the other day, I realised I needed a library bag - and not just any bag (this coming from the queen of bagmaking). I needed this one:
I used a pattern by Fiona Dalton from "The Crafter's Companion" and it was quite simply the easiest pattern I have ever followed. I've have this book for a while, but now want to make more stuff from it - everything in it is so beautiful.
After making the bag, I got distracted by this ...
... when really, I should be making this ...
