seems like this.....

Lately, I've been finding it hard to get crafty projects done.

And when that happens, the backlog gets longer, and longer and longer

And I start to get antsy (not sure it thats a word, but you know - niggly, frustrated, annoyed, cheesed - you get the point!)

And just to add to my woe - I find more awesome stuff that I want to make, which is really bad, as I mentioned before I'm struggling even to sew a stitch. 

Stuff on my to do list include...

2. These for the kids

3. Finish the Vogue skirt that has been sitting on the back of my sewing chair for the last four weeks (I've given you this link - as they are having a sale - yay!

4. Make an educational board for my son (no link - the idea is in my head!)

5. Free myself of some the fabric scraps that are nearly causing me to drown in my small sewing space (as I clearly believe in not wasting one little iota of fabric!)

6. Finish off the 6 aprons I started as gifts to take on my overseas travels...

7. and then give my sewing space a lovely tidy-up!

Now this is the short list!

How do you cope when you can't craft?  Or get a backlog? do you get a little cranky?

I like the quote above - too many ideas - not enough time!  Too True!!! 

Stay tuned as I hope next week I will be able to reveal lots of finished crafty projects to brag about!



  1. Oh yes. Far too many ideas and far too little time! Now that I have caught the sewing bug, a whole new world has opened up to me!

    All the best with getting your list down and getting some crafty satisfaction happening!

  2. Yes I so agree with this quote. I've been feeling a bit this way at the moment, a little grumpy that I can't get to my long list of projects. I hope you get a chance to get some craft done this week. xo

  3. Antsy is definitely a word!!

    I never have enough time to get everything done that I want to get done, crafty or otherwise. It makes it very hard to take time out and just relax! Antsy all the time. xxx

  4. Sometimes there is only enough time in the day for the normal stuff. So sometimes I have to declare a day off, let the house turn to crap, whilst I do that 'out of the ordinary' thing, scrap, sew, whatever. It doesn't take that long to catch up when I come back to the ordinary.

  5. OH, I struggle with fabric scraps too - too big to throw out but too small to do anything with. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

  6. Oh I am soooo hearing you on this one!! have far too many projects on the go at the moment but all I want to do is curl up on the lounge, drink cups of tea and eat bickies! Good for you putting your list out there...it helped me get through a stack a while back...ah the pressure of a blog! Hope all is magic :) x
