I’ve been learning to give myself permission to change the plan and go slow with my 365 Things I Know project recently. Catch up here.
My Things I Know project has slowed down a little lately but I’m determined not to stop completely. So I’m giving myself permission to go slow and it will certainly take me more than a year to get to 365 but that’s ok.
Do you give yourself permission to change the plan in the middle? Or do you feel guilty when you can’t continue with your original intentions?
It is something I have struggled with in the past. But as I think more about it, I’m starting to realise that often the only person expecting me to stick with the plan is me, so it is ok to change it for myself. I can give myself permission to do that. It is a change in thinking for me that has taken time.
But back to the Things I Know project: You can find the originals and more over on Instagram here.
Pressing your patchwork as you go along will make your blocks more accurate and easier to sew.
Creativity means a “mistake” can be part of the design. I’m planning 4 “mistake” squares in the middle of my blanket now.
I’m excited to finally have this tutorial ready to share with you. Learn how to make large banners with applique like the ones I made for the school musical last term.
You really can make a beautiful design just with two colours. I’ve enjoyed creating blue granny squares for CrochetCoach
I’m just getting started today, knowing sometimes that is all it takes! Are you starting something new today?
Something a little bit exciting is getting closer!
Every project is a learning opportunity. In this case, I learnt that I really do need to double check my counting.
I seem to be drawn to these colours lately. These are for a new crochet project from my stash. The patterns calls for two colours but I’ll be using four because that’s what I have! Do you find yourself using the same colours for projects again and again?
With kids back to school today, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed with projects and ideas and outstanding jobs! But I know if I just pick something and go for it, I’ll gradually work through my list.
It feels good to move my squares from the “need to weave in ends” pile to the “all done” pile.
I wish I could show you the finished blanket here but I’m still working on it.
