I need side projects because I have so much time and I brilliantly sail through major projects with no issues and my mood is always set on “high productivity”. Yeah, right. If I really believed that, this past weekend would have destroyed my illusions.
I have a new job so I have no vacation time. This means the past couple of weeks of long weekends is the closest I have come to having time off since August. So oodles of time is not something I have.
I tried, yesterday, to finish my leather gloves for the final challenge in HSF 2016 but it resisted all efforts to progress. In fact, I may have buggered it up enough that it may have to be wadded up and tossed. Definitely hitting the UFO pile and for the first time since I started HSF, I will not have an entry into the challenges. Lets scratch

This goes back to what I said in my last post about not touching a project when the mood is off. I’m having some car drama…long story. Which means I’m swinging between fury and depression with 30 second bursts of optimism. It was that 30 seconds that urged me to face the gloves and attempt to finish them. MISTAKE!
So someone tell me why I started a Pintrest board for housewife/sewing kits with dreams to make “historical” ones as an accessory and modern ones for my knitting needles, crochet hooks and all the junk I store next to my “spot” on the living room couch? My only theory is: when the creative juju evades you, you can at least, dream and what is Pintrest but a record of peoples dreams.
