What was the last thing you made?
Last night I made a Christmas corner in our house - we put up our tree and lights in the living room, and I made a tree skirt out of some old curtains we had.
A couple of weeks ago I made earrings for my bridesmaids. Or at least, I made one pair before I got frustrated and started wondering whether my girls would even want to wear the earrings and whether I had the patience to continue making five more pairs.
A few months ago I made what was supposed to be a clutch but that I turned into a makeup bag. It quickly became my favorite makeup case I've ever owned.
Several years ago I started three different pairs of knitted slippers. I finished one pair but ruined them in the felting process. The other two pairs remain unfinished in my knitting bag.
These are just a few of the things I've made in the past few years. I like to think of myself as a crafty person, but I'm also an impatient crafty person. If I can't figure out how to make something fairly easily I have a hard time coming back to it later. And if it comes out looking amateurish or like a child made it? Well, I stuff it in a bag and forget about it.
But remembering these projects makes me want to pull them out and finish them. And see if I can't make something better now than my impatient self abandoned.
