The Procrastipost

Yes I know it’s Wednesday and you were expecting to see the words “Midweek WIP’s” but I’m just not feeling it today. Wednesdays should be my productive days, monster no1 at school and monster no2 at nursery, the house to my self, free to get on with my long list of projects. The thing is this morning it’s just not happening. I had set aside today to work on a bag pattern I would like to share with you guys, my first proper PDF pattern, but my brain has other ideas. So far I’ve been food shopping, popped to hobbycraft (just cos), had leftover pancakes (yum) and sat staring at my laptop for over an hour. I’ve even considered doing housework. Seriously what is wrong my my wandering mind? I just can’t seem to focus.

So now instead I’ve popped in to say hi to you, clear my thoughts and hopefully get focused again. Or I could just be using you as a crutch for all my procrastination needs. Well as I’m here I might as well show you my crochet hook roll I made this weekend.

This has to be the girliest thing I have made in a while, it’s not normally my style, but I love it because the monsters gave me the fabric I used as part of my Mother’s Day present last year and I’ve been saving it for a little project I can keep.

The outer fabric is a fairy tale princesses print which I attempted to free motion quilt (very badly) for the first time. I definitely need a lot more practice, you can’t see in the photo but consistency is not a word I can use yet when talking about stitch length!

The monsters also gave me the heart fabric that I used for the pocket and lining. It coordinated perfectly with the colours in the outer fabric.

And to tip it over the edge on the cuteness scale I finished the roll off with a scrap of lace I had left over from a previous project.

Oh can you believe it it’s lunch time. I best get on but thanks for keeping me occupied. I hope your day is more productive than mine!
