And it feels good. I’ve got a little extra help for the next few weeks since all of the embassy kids are on winter break. A sweet young lady has been coming by to hang out with my sweet young lady while I sneak back into my studio. I’ve had so many ideas and projects stacking up. I’m making the absolute most of my time.
My first project was this iPad cover. I had been cruising on line to try to find something that appealed, quickly becoming overwhelmed by choices. It always happens like this. I find some things I like, balk at the prices, carry on and then curse myself when I realize that during the slack-jawed hours I’ve wasted on line I could’ve made one by now. Lesson learned? Probably not.
I wanted an easy project to oil my gears and work out the kinks and dust that collect when one has been away from their tools for over a year (!). The straight forward design came together quickly and without headache or profanity. This little tiny success felt amazing. Bravo, me! This week’s project is a leather box/basket to hold the Bushbaby’s collection of wood building blocks. I want something that’s sturdy, easy to clean and good looking enough to have a semi-prominent spot next to the sofa. And since my language instructor has already given me payment for a laptop bag, I suppose I’d better get crackin on that too.
