I’ve joined up to The Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap of 2013. Anyone else with me?
The theme is celebration so I’ll keep the blog posted with my progress. I usually work better with a deadline approaching so let’s hope this keeps me on the straight and narrow!
This week I’ve been thinking about handmade books more than ever, but sadly there has been more thinking than doing (see how empty my Etsy shop is?). How could I present them? Where could I sell them? How could I make it pay so I don’t have to work for ‘The Man’ any more? How can I get rid of my children?(!) How do these other Mothers have successful businesses? How can I be a Crafty Superstar and be really fit and have a beautiful garden and be a Domestic Goddess and make amazing meals every night (including a pudding for the poor deprived Farmer)? Sigh.
Partly as procrastination and partly to quieten my mind, I have been dabbling in the world of crochet again. I’m making a wee blanket for a friend’s almost due baby and hoping the colour choice is unisex enough - maybe I can macho it up a bit at the last minute if need be!
