A rambling collection of my thoughts about life, my children and crafty things

Lovely lime

I’ve been mooching around on folksy this evening and found some lovely things. Green is not high on my list of favourite colours – I rarely wear it (a colour therapist friend maintains this leads to a lack of balance in my life – not sure how I sit on that one!) Anyway, I’ve always held a soft spot for lime green, although would never dream of wearing it.

This is what I found this evening –

1. Chunky crocheted fruit bowl by locket and pocket – I love the colours. As its pure wool I’d have to hide it from my Mum. She would probably insist on putting it in the washing machine to ‘see what happens’.

2. Funky Retro Ladies Pink & Lime Apron by Stitches by Emmy Lou – too pretty for an apron. I’d be tempted to wear a dress like this!

3. Pink and lime brooch by Lisa Steed Davey – is there a lime and pink theme emerging here?

4. Lime and Aqua Tropical Splash Button Bracelet by Mrs Gibson – I WILL buy myself a Mrs Gibson button bracelet in 2011.

The New Year has come early

I’ve been thinking about things to do over the next year and make some progress on the things I want to do. I was good at starting my day zero list but its fallen by the wayside in recent months. I’ve had another look and broken it down into more manageable pieces and decided to concentrate on a few things at a time.

My focus for January is my folksy shop. After initial excitement and a flurry of activity it dried up and nothing really happened. I’m going back to my plan of putting on three new things each month and have started knitting a kindle cover in preparation. I’m also having a look around for inspiration and trying to dedicate a bit more time to creating things.

Time is my biggest issue – or lack of it. I feel the need to cram far too much in and then struggle to keep up with everything. Perhaps I should have a time management resolution for 2011? I’ll have to think of a good SMART objective for that one!
