Yesterday I had a sudden urge to have a home day and get on top of the laundry, floors and clutter in the house. I don’t think it’s nesting. I really wanted to sit down and finish another block for my red letter quilt but I knew I had to get some of the housework done first. In the end the sun was out and I mixed cleaning with playing outside and had a lovely day with about 15 minutes knitting on the couch and not a minute spent at my machine.
But I wonder do you do that? Set little goals so if you do this then you can sit down and do what you really want to do. Even if it’s just 20 minutes on the couch with my knitting, I feel much better about everything because I took that time to do something that I love. With less than 8 weeks till a new member of our family arrives I have a big to do list and have just added making a little cardigan to come home from the hospital in.
And I also want to have a couple of pairs of baby socks knitted up too. This is my all time favourite baby sock pattern and is in a couple of Debbie Bliss pattern books. I’ve made them a couple of times and they are so sweet and warm.
What’s your secret for getting some craft time into your day?
