Finally - something to show...

It's been a frustrating week, too much work on, not enough time to make anything...(although we did have my in-laws over to stay and that was lovely as always)
Finally, last night, I gave up on the Ms Mc C project for a bit (very slow progress it has to be said) and ventured up the stairs to the spare room where I keep my "stuff" in what I have to admit is horrible disarray. So horrible I can never bring myself to do anything in that room and always beat a hasty retreat. I grabbed as many bits and pieces as I could and set up camp in the kitchen again. Phew! It was strewn with fabric, felt, ribbon, stuffing, threads, buttons (I could go on) and it felt like heaven...
I messed about for a bit and came up with this little critter for our festive tree/branch/twig (whatever it will be)...




It was fun! It was so much fun!
I want to do it all again right now
unfortunately the day job calls...

I think I need to just mess about a bit more with my "stuff" on some shorter length projects. What with my time to devote to crafting being very short these days (practically full time job in an unrelated industry, two kids etc etc etc) it is rewarding to finish a making stint with a finished object rather than another WIP. Instant gratification, that's obviously doing it for me at the moment!
