The person who I want to be and the person who I am don't always overlap - in fact sometimes those two people seem poles apart.
Right this minute, most of all, I want to be a motivated person.
It's been over a month since I last blogged, every time I think about that I feel sad - like the person I want to be is the kind of person who says and does interesting things on a regular and reliable basis - but the truth is - I'm the kind of person who does stuff sometimes but mostly enjoys sitting around drinking tea, watching episodes and having grand plans that don't often come to fruition (also I'm a full time stay at home Mum, but I'm talking purely about my 'free time' when the children are both asleep). I want to stretch my mind a bit more and in all honesty I could use my time more wisely then I do, I really could - and I want to.
Mostly I need a kick in the pants.
I have managed to work on one small project - a little softy sleepy sheep. I'm still working the kinks out of the pattern, I've not made a softy pattern before, so this is new territory for me (my aim is to post the pattern here when it is finished). In other news I bought some scallop edge pinking shears and snap pliers from ebay, I think I'm in love.
What do you do to get motivated? Any advice?
