No time to felt

This photo sums up my day. I needed felt for a crafting project. I had some time this morning, so I started. I em-ed and ah-ed over colours. I positioned wisps to achieve the effect I needed. I started to lose myself in the process.

As I applied the water and soap, my first visitor dropped in. As we chatted, I managed to do a bit more, until the next visitor dropped in. I stopped.

From then on people dropped in and out all day long. My half finished project remained unfinished on the table, slowly drying out. Not that it was unproductive time. Everyone crafted, discussed and moved around my felt. Not till this evening did I have time to myself.

I think that this is the longest it has ever taken me to make a small sheet of felt. Goodness only knows how long it its going to take to finish the whole crafting project, at this rate. So why am I writing about this? It’s because I’m now just an insey-winsey bit worried about the rest of the items on my making list. Hmm. I need to prioritize and it’s not even December!

    The days do seem to get shorter and shorter as we near Christmas, and not just because the nights are drawing in…………….I have not activated my panic button just yet…………lovely colours in your felt project, can’t wait to see what you craft with it. x

      I’m on track again, so I’m happy. I want to enjoy doing this crafting, so I’m not going to get frantic. What gets done, gets done. 🙂 Panic button is still behind its glass cover and will remain there.

    I think you might just have to get your visitors felting with you next time so that by the end of the day your felt will be done!
    Thanks for entering my give away and good luck finishing off your project.
