One thing I know about myself is that I love a new idea.
It doesn't take that much effort to distract me onto a new path.
So I often have lots of things on the go at various stages of completion.
I don't forget my older projects, I just love starting new things.
The beginning of a project is one of my favourite creative stages, so much enthusiasm and enjoyment. Sometimes things stall a bit after that, and progress slows down, and I start thinking about different things and then I am distracted again!
I have stuck with crochet though, too much to love to be distracted onto a different craft! :)
Crochet has been good for me in that often projects are small and quick and 'finishable' in that first enthusiastic stage. I have completed more crochet projects than any other crafty endeavour I have had a go at before.
So today I have been working on a slow burn type project, that I started in a burst of energy a couple of months ago, then had to wait for some pieces to fall into place and lost a bit of momentum.
But I am back onto it now!
I have been putting together little 'star making' crochet kits from the crochet stars that I made earlier in the year; winding wool onto bobbin cards, printing off instructions, making labels, and so on.
I am going to have to find a nice brown paper bag tomorrow to package
it in, as the ones I had lined up are too small. :(
I am planning a couple of different stars, I have been doing a Christmas one today, and I will do a nice colourful one tomorrow. I think they would make an easy fun project for a crafty person.
I really want to get these together and in my shop as soon as I can! I am definitely trying to follow through on this idea! No Distractions!!
I will show you the finished kits as soon as I can, can't wait to get these done.
What have you been up to today?
