Here I am again; behind…I have so many irons in the fire I look like one of those circus people spinning plates. I move from plate to plate and get nothing finished, BUT I haven’t dropped a plate… yet.
“Well, that is stopping!” she said with her cold 1st cup of coffee sitting in front of her. You know you need to post when one of your followers (Thank you followers) writes you to be sure her notification of new posts is working.
So today I’m going to show you one of my spinning plates in action…Between my knitting classes, beading (Kumihimo and straight beading classes), and needlepoint I joined Two Temari programs and thought I could keep up. In the process of doing my Temari I pulled out my Temari notebook and…
And off and on (mostly off) I have played with yet again rewriting instructions. I am not big on the Japanese terminology in my instructions, but I have two references I keep handy to help me.
And so I started re-re-doing my Temari notebook. So far I have 21 pages done (first 3 pictures below) and 3 Temari reference pages completed (last picture). My general instructions will be that general and my reference pages will show the specific instructions for that Temari. I guess as long as it makes sense to me, that’s all that matters but I would like to think someone could pick up my notebook and stitch a Temari of their own too. Maybe someday I will offer to let you all read it.
I have since come up for air and realized that some things must spin slower. I bowed out of the two Temari programs I signed up to participate in and have become just a lurker on these sites.
My knitting classes are over but I am still knitting…I bought yarn so I have to knit it. Right now I am working on a scarf…it has a few boo-boos but you only learn from your mistakes.
I am only going to beading classes every other week. It really is not an organized class, just a get-to-gether and learn. I do go to a class the 1st Sat of the month and will continue that.
I also am keeping up with needlepoint and go to a stitch-in on Wednesdays at local shop. I have just been doing this every other week too.
I have decided that my attention span is low…I go gung-ho for about two weeks and then I get bored or frustrated and I’m off to another project. I am self-diagnosed ADHD and will just have to learn to live with my erratic behaviors. I have decided when I get frustrated I am going to back off let it sit (right in front of me as not to get lost in the shuffle) and then come back to it another day. I will conquer this Temari notebook. I have files on my computer of most of the temari I have made so I just need to keep at it.
And to my blogging friends, thank you for putting up with me I hope I bring you a smile or two and maybe even an insight now and then.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have time to stitch today.
P.S Dee hope you got an update! And thanks again for reminding me I was neglecting a nice part of my life.
