To Do, or Not To Do, seriously, I need to do something…… and quickly

Do you know those days (weeks) when you just can’t see the wood for the trees and despite your best intentions you still keep starting more new things??

Consequently its getting a wee bit busy in the craft room.  Can you just feel the sarcasm rolling of my tongue?

The To Do List is currently showing; 3 new projects for the Linen and Lace Design Team to be completed and posted by 16th September (Top secret so no sneaky peeks),

6 projects for a craft fair in October and I need to finish them for photography and the application form,  table fillers for a fair in November, (this is so far down the line its not even on my shopping list yet)!

some quilts that I am (still) finishing and a list of things that I’ve yet to start, bunting, some baby bags and a quilt thats not even sketched yet to name but a few ……..

aaaaahhhhh.  (Screaming loudly)

In some of those moments when I was happily procrastinating I had a wee play and using some yardage from a Craftsy sale box, I found a pattern and having a wee play I fell in love with these cheeky little  bags and their plucky characters, Mr Fox and Princess Chick.

I’m thinking of putting a few of them into upcoming fairs and I do hope they will be well received they are so cute, even if I say so myself.

Then something a bit twee, how can you not love a cupcake? and this one won’t put a single calorie on your hips!  another project, its time consuming, lots of hand sewing and its filled with those pesky plastic pellets to weigh down the base, what a painnnnnnnnn!

What do you think? worth pursuing????

And then just to mix things up even more and to keep the creative juices flowing,  I decided to make some Advent calendars. Tonic Studios had some great offers on Create and Craft and I do love a bargain so these fell into my basket and they were calling me from the side of the cupboard and I couldn’t help myself and just had to make a couple – to see how they turned out, you know how it is.  I really need to concentrate.  I have promised my self a huge clear up this week, I will see how it goes so watch this space x.

I have loved making 'things' as long as I can remember. As a child I wanted to be a 'Blue Peter' TV presenter making things with paper, sticky tape and odd household objects. I adore being creative, I love quilting, patchwork, fabric and multi media crafting. TheCraftyPixy as a name started as a bit of fun but I love 'playing' so much, it has stuck! Family and friends ask 'where is she, is she playing?' meaning am I upstairs in my craft room working or playing.... I make samples of lovely quilted and fabric items for television, magazines, social media and for demonstrations. I sell some of my handmade items, I take orders and special commissions. From here ..... the world is my oyster or my lobster- so they say.
