catch up and crochet.


do you ever feel like you are always in catch up mode? Today is one of those days, I have spent my morning and better part of my afternoon catching up on life. Getting emails sent, bills paid, questions answered, and I still feel like I have SO much more to do.

I have a list of things I would like to do when I have time...and it just never seems to be gotten too. Most specifically to write a few proposals for the tons of galleries having open calls right now. Someday I will get to this.

and for some insane reason I signed up for a crochet class tomorrow that will go over making crochet motifs. This seemed a good way to perhaps learn the skills to crochet words- which I have been wanting to do forever.
But now I am terrified. I mean yes I know how to crochet, but barely. And I DO NOT now how to follow a pattern. Patterns and me just do not mix. When I sew and knit I just make it up- so crochet will likely be the same. ( i never really liked rules, ya know?)
But... I am afraid I am going to be the stupid kid in class tomorrow and totally embarrass myself and annoy the teacher. Eek. Let's hope not.
Wish me luck.

If you are in Brooklyn you should stop in to hear this cool embroiderer speak about her work tonight.

you will be fine! if there's one craft that lends itself to improv and freeform, it's crochet! way more than knitting or sewing. you'll see...

I feel like I'm always playing catch up. My list of "someday, I'll do..." is too long!

I'm glad you had a good time with the crochet class! I was going to tell you that you would do fine, but then I saw your comment here. I should investigate crochet to see if it hurts less than knitting. I miss yarn! Can't wait to see some crochet experiments :)

always a to do list, seems like part of modern life.
