I’ve been so busy creating pincushions this month that I’ve neglected everything else….like housework, and laundry, and dishes, and…and…and…
My house looks like a very strong hurricane has been through…..twice! I did a quick load of laundry over the weekend (because I was running out of unmentionables). I finally bathed Millie (my Yorkie) … because Her Smelliness was looking so bedraggled and sad (not to mention her pungent aroma). She’s a much happier puppy today…and she smells like baby shampoo! Meal preparation has been completely suspended…..thank goodness for the microwave and cold snack foods. Fortunately, I only have myself to feed….and I’ve kept Millie’s bowl full, so my guilt has been pretty easily put aside. (Did I tell you that I’m really good at rationalizing….and making excuses?)
In the name of creativity…and making the most of my sometimes elusive muse….I put everything aside and focused on getting The Queen’s Pincushion off to a good start. Creating the actual pincushions was the fun part….but there were a lot of administrative tasks, too. Setting up a new website, a new blog (or 2), taking photos, post-processing photos….and the list goes on. I still have a lot (read L.O.T.) of writing to do. Which brings me to . . .
My apologies for adding so few posts to The Purple Sweater lately (and all my many other blogs, too). I’m hoping to do better in the weeks to come . . . to share with you some of the things I’m making for my daughter’s wedding, a few other projects I have been trying to find time to work on, and (of course) new pincushions as I get them completed.
Here are two I finished over the weekend and posted to the shop this morning.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them!
