Sticking Too It

I have been a little all over the place as far as my craft is concerned.  I’m not sure if this is because I am getting bored in one task so I jump to another.  If I’m working on one task but realize that this other thing is just as important so I should work on that too.  Or if there is maybe a lot more on my plate than I can deal with efficiently.

Last night I sat down for 20 minutes and put ribbon wings in between doing loads of laundry.  And then my mom called, so I pushed the wings aside, forgot about the laundry, and spent I don’t know how long talking about my sister’s first date.  I’m so excited for her, and I have probably just embarrassed her a bunch, but I don’t really care.  That’s how our family works.  If your boyfriend can’t handle the embarrassment, he won’t be able to handle you.

I have intermittently been working on tutus.

But the heat makes it a little difficult.  The tulle sticks to me and then I start to itch all over.  Also, my kitten likes to try to dive roll through the mountains of tulle I create.  Distracting.

Then, I realized this week that I really need to pick a goal and a time frame each week, and just stick to it.  What do I need to do, how do I get it done, and when will that be possible?

Every morning this week I have been able to churn out cording for a new item.

 

It takes about 15 minutes or so to turn one ball of 200+ yards into I-don’t-know-how-many-feet of cord, which gets looped and looped and looped until I get a perfectly sized necklace.

Which I am packing along with me to begin the embellishments.  Maybe I will have 20 completed by the end of the weekend.  That is my goal.  Twenty should be all I need.  And if I need more, piece o’ cake.

      Thank you. They are adorable and so much fun to make. I started making some for grownups too, because for some reason, I get a lot of young adults and older asking if I have them in their size.
