Ok, so today I am in an excitable mood. I have the day off of work but I got up early to take part in the Write for Ten challenge that I decided to do on Wednesday. Today was my third effort. I think it is OK, for one it is great practice. You see I have decided that I am going to participate in the NaNoWriMo in November. Which does mean that I have to finish all my Christmas stitching by the end of October! Nothing like a fast looming deadlines to get you moving :)
I have picked out the designs that I want to stitch and will start one later today - I also have Monday next week off so am going to try my best to do a couple at least. I am little miss optimistic today aren't I?
Once I start I will see about posting some sneak peeks for you guys. Finishing is always a challenge but now the sewing machine has been christened I am feeling (again) optimistic.
If any of you fancy reading some of the stuff that I write - to be honest it has been very short 'Five Sentence Fiction' pieces and currently 3 'Write for Ten' pieces - the they can be found on my other site 'The Suddenly Kate Show' , the links are on the pages for each.
I have also been practising crochet! I know - call me crazy - about a year ago, I thought I would learn, I mean how hard could it be? It turns out that it was a lot harder than I thought and the instructions were unclear. So every now and then I have been picking up a hook and giving it a go - and slowly but surely I have seen an improvement. Don't get me wrong - I am far from making anything other than double crochet squares, but I am pleased that the practice is paying off. I have noticed my knitting has improved with practice immeasurably! I am pleased with that too - and I guess all these small triumphs are what has left me in a bouncy mood today. I used to hold the needles all wrong, and i looked on youtube and the instructions didn't make it any clearer - If i can help anyone in any way who is struggling with the needles then let me know, maybe I will make a video! (Highly unlikely) teheheheh!
So tell me - what are your weekend plans?
