I confess to being the type of personality where everything has to be done NOW! If there's a job to be done, tackle it head-on and get it finished and out of the way. Now maybe it doesn't apply to housework ... but I'm the type who likes a clean slate. I don't like a big long "To Do" list looking at me for weeks.
Last week, I decided I would have an overhaul of my patterns - remove some old ones, rearranging and organising them all in one place in my Craftsy shop. I opened the diary and carefully divided the work into manageable sections over the next week or two - Wall-hangings on Monday, Quilts on Tuesday, Bags on Wednesday etc.
I could blame the weather - it was too cold and windy yesterday to go and work in the garden - but realistically there was a job hanging over my head and it needed to be done NOW! So, the diary entries were totally ignored, and I went head-on into it. Of course, once I started, I wanted to finish ... so the job is all done!
I decided to reduce the price of quite a few of my patterns - like the Busy Bees Pincushion now just $3:
While I was at it, I thought it was time to add a few of my latest designs. Picnic in the Park is now available:
It includes a cutlery wrap:
I hope you enjoy browsing my reorganised pages. You can see the different categories listed at the top of my sidebar. I plan to add another half dozen patterns over the next couple of weeks. (That job can take up my empty diary spots!)
In between patchwork, stitching and quilting, I like to do some silk ribbon embroidery and my latest design is in Embroidery & Cross Stitch magazine Vol 22 No 1:
A sweet felt bag:
The butterfly could be appliqued on just about anything:
Kacoonda silk ribbons are such a joy to work with.
Are you a procrastinator or do you try to finish the job before you start, like me?
