    Another overdue blog post ūüė≥ and no excuse really as it’s only going to be a short one. Early October I saw a shout out from Art Space G41 for artists and crafters to take part in their first Christmas Fayre.

    2018 Review

    It’s the 10th January already? I guess I’m not that late for my year end review. 2018 was the first year in which I’ve sat down, wrote and published targets on how I wanted to take Ceefer Crafts. I guess ingrained Performance Officer habits are hard to break no matter how hard I try

    A post about other people’s work. The pile of assorted paperwork was at risk of a landslide this morning so drastic measures (filing) was required.

    Classes 2018

    Following my to do list in the previous post, it was nice to have my Residential Home classes confirmed this morning for the rest of the year. I enjoy doing them and it is good to hear positive feedback from both the residents and staff.

    Bit of fundraising

    This month I started running craft sessions at number of local care homes as a result I have 9 example pieces left over.¬†So that I don’t end up over run with these every month, I’ve decided to sell them to raise money for the¬†Masato Beanies¬†homeless fund. For each one sold I will donate ¬£1 to the fund and if I clear all 9 will round it up to ¬£10.

    WWKIPDAY 2017

    Last Saturday was World Wide Knit In Public Day¬†(us crafters do like our acronyms) ¬†so I tootled down to Dalgarven Mill in Kilwinning to catch up with some very lovely ladies I haven’t seen in far too long. (It meant I missed the Wool Haven’s first birthday and their WWKIP event – so it would be appreciated if someone could invent either a time machine or cloning device)

    Update

    The only downside to crafting and blogging is¬†it is so easy to get caught up with the crafting that you forget to blog about it – or as in my case have about 5 blogposts/projects almost but not quite finished. It’s been a busy couple of weeks, 2 new crochet classes started at the Wool Haven and then a day out at the Hobbycrafts Show at the SECC¬†which provided a lot of inspiration and a few projects. Something I’ve thought about trying is crocheting with wire & beads, I’ve seen it on YouTube and in books, but¬†never got round to doing it. Now I’ve seen it I am definitely going…

    Work in progress

    I’ve been procrastinating all summer; not working on this blog because I wanted it to be perfect. Then I realised today if I had that attitude with my crafting I’d never get anything done. The FEAR¬†that it won’t be good enough, or that I shouldn’t be doing this – who am I to try to learn new skills at my age. I’m not “arty” I shouldn’t even be considering doing it. That is what I’ve been going up against these last couple of years, that I’m only playing, well the inner voices can¬†shut up. This site isn’t perfect, it could be messy. But that’s how I craft.
