Chronic Craft Block

September 17, 2011 at 1:49 pm (Uncategorized)

So I know I haven’t posted anything for a long while and that’s definitely my fault. I’ve put all of my projects on hold due to personal reasons so I didn’t think I would bother updating my blog about things that were completely un-related. I hope you understand.

Really, I hope you do. I just saved you several weeks worth of angsty rants.

But the whole reason this started was a lack of room and a sewing machine that decided to not cooperate and then break. I’ve tried my hand at sewing things by hand but having a machine for awhile has spoiled me. Don’t get me wrong, I will hand-sew if I need to or want to. 

I’ve been wanting to sew for a serious amount of time and every time I turned around there was another project I wanted to create. But I didn’t have the machine to properly itch that scratch. So a few days ago I bought a Brother LX3125 off of Ebay for $40/free shipping [Daily Deal]. It was too good to pass up.

I got it a couple of days ago and opened it yesterday. I cleared off the dining room table the same night and designated it as my sewing area; no one eats there anyway. It’s already cluttered a little bit but that’s only because I haven’t figured out what to make just yet. I have all these ideas but none that I really want to start with.

I could start on the kimono but I really want to work on the cage liners. At the same time I don’t want to work on the cage liners until I get a good camera and tripod. But then again I should at least try to make a cage liner to see if my theory really works. Ah, but there’s a swimming top I’ve been scheming to make. Then again it’s September and 60 degrees outside, I’m not going to the beach any time soon. I could would work on my super secret couture project but I’ve lost the supplies somewhere in the oblivion that is the living room. Maybe I could just make a petticoat and make a pretty skirt to match? I could make that in a weekend but I don’t have any tulle except the stuff I had reserved for my mudkip costume. I should get on that…

See where I’m stuck?

I’ve got Craft block. How about you?
