In a crafting funk.....

I am currently in the clutches of a crafting funk, and I don't know how to get out of it.
I have a stack of great fabrics, trims, ribbons etc. I have a nearly new sewing machine.
I have orders for five strings of bunting and a notice board......I should be crafting up a storm!

The following is a list of reasons NOT to get to work:

1. I have a 2 year old and I am completely knackered.
2. I would rather be blogging, drinking coffee and eating chocolate. (Oh that's what I am doing now ha!)
3. Every time I set up my machine to start, Max wakes up and I have to pack it away again.
4. Neighbours is on.
5. It's too hot.

The following is the list of pros:

1. I need a craft to blog about.
2. People are waiting for their bunting.
3. I always feel better after a creative splurge.
4. Neighbours is dumb at the moment.
5. It's pouring with rain.

Mmmmmmmm......I'm still torn.

Anyhoo, here's a pic of the breton top I picked up at the Marche aux Puces in Paris.
Finally I have a genuine breton in my wardrobe which is already packed with navy and white striped tops!

  1. Love your Breton top from the Marche au Puce...haven't been to Paris since Feb 09...too long ago...think I need to book the Eurostar sooooon. Looks like you all had a fun time.

    It must be hard to craft with a little one around...And by the time they are asleep your also falling asleep standing up!

    Bunting sounds fun though...

    There is always Play Dough to craft :P used to love doing that...

    Oh I hope you can grab a bit of YOU time to yourself soon ;-)

    LOVE Julie x

  2. when it stops raining, how about you set up the sewing machine on a table out side in the garden, under the new fabulous sun umbrella running an extension cord to the machine. That way you get the breeze, to be out in the garden and hopefully you won't have to pack it all away when Max wakes up!? xx

  3. Oh brown paper i think that's the first reply you've done to comments perhaps - something to think about keep doing haha! Love the machine in garden idea and max will be happy out there - buntings away!! STOP the rain, humid and rainy - oh dear, roll back the sun! when does your umbrella w tassles arrive? Love the french stripe! Can't wait for my necklase! Love you x

  4. Sorry Nae! Will be more commenty in future! Your necklase should be with you any day! Umbrella is up and I'm lovin'. Pics to follow. Love you! xxx
