It is the 14th of January, 2008
I don't feel like this year is much different from the last.
I do, however, plan to make some changes.
Buy the minimum possible fabric....the background for my Baby Jane being an exception. I also bought 100 fat sixteenths, so I am set for a goodly while there, and I do have a box of Civil War Repro's besides.
I am slowly knitting a shawl, these balls of wool are few and far between
I have no new needles for Ethel, but that is all right. I have neither the funds for needles, backing and batting, nor the expertise to right the problem and quilt.
I look around my Studio, and it doesn't make me feel Happy, or inspired, or content.
It is full of 'stuff'.....that I don't NEED or WANT. I have the urge sometimes to take it all into the yard and burn it.
But I cannot DO that. There is too much money invested in the shelves for that.
In magazines alone, I had 80 duplicates, or ones I no longer wanted, and half again of bear and doll magazines
I tried an Ebay store, just for scrap bags and bundles of magazines, but didn't sell a thing,
I have begun a mystery quilt, I indulged, and bought 6, 10 cm cuts of fabric to add spice, the rest is off the shelf.
Scary, that I can pull upwars of 9 yards of fabric without making a dent.
I had thought about opening a little internet business, but the paperwork, and accountability stopped me, well, that and the realisation that it takes persistance and money to be sucessful
For the moment, I am going to try to get up each day and not want to go straight back to bed.
For the moment it looks like the mental illness is winning.
So I will read other blogs when I am able, and perhaps comment, in the mean time, Studio Christine is on Hiatus
