Plodding on...

Hey folks, hope you have had a great week! And plans for a fun weekend?!
Its been a while since I last blogged... things have been a little hectic, getting called into work at the last minute (seriously - 15minutes after the person who didnt turn up should of started their shift... I only had to drive 7 miles through 3 sets of road works and morning traffic - the air was blue in my car I can tell you, I was steamin` mad!) Im gonna start growling about it again if I think about it ... so moving on :o). That was on top of my other shifts.
I have managed to get some of my fancy felting embellishments listed over on my Folsky stall, non of the hand dyed stuff yet though.

I have sari silk goodies



Silk caps & hankies

And curly locks

To be honest Im feeling a little artistically challenged at the moment. I had a simple project in mind a couple of weeks ago, make a lightweight & sexy wrap for my moms birthday. Simple! Yeah right! I made 2... each one ended up taking me a whole day (one took 9 hours solid!) and I didnt get what I wanted GRRRRRR. I actually like the finished pieces, but they just werent what I wanted for my mothers birthday present! SO, totally sick and tired of wraps I decided to make something altogether different... I cant share just yet though cos she does check out my blog from time to time & sods law she will end up seeing it before her birthday! Will post soon...

Hope Im back to my normal self next week - I dont do `down` very well (or maybe I do it too well?) Anyway, enoughs enough - maybe I should hit the Red Bull?!

Anyway, whatever you are doing - have a lovely weekend :o)

Loving all of the fiber goodies you have found! I just purchased my first bundle of hankies and laps. Finished dyeing them yesterday with a whole mess of other fibers-cannot wait to play. Cannot wait to see what you come up with for your moms pressie. Hope you are feeling more cheerful soon, it's no fun being down! :)

Oh Deborah, I'm so sorry to hear that you are feeling down, lately.
I get this way, too, sometimes...and besides allowing myself to 'feel my feelings' (as my therapist would say! Har), it also helps (a little) to know that it WILL pass in time.
In the meantime, remember that there are many of us out here in blogland who care about you and wish you only good things. XXOO-

Well I do sympathise with you feeling artistically challenged as I'm just the same - but I think we sometimes need periods of resting from crafting before we feel re-charged enough - I'm hoping inspiration will strike after we get away for a bit. You've certainly got lots of lovely bits in your shop though. Hope you manage to produce just the right thing for your mum soon xx
