I will warn you now if you don't want to hear my cranky attitude then look away. I have been having a C.C.M....a crap craft moment...and I am just cranky with it!
In the spirit of keeping "it real" (whatever "it" is) I am going to share the moments when I loose it a little...(whatever "it" is)
I am usually a stoic woman, to those whom I don't know that well. You know when people ask "How are you?" the polite reply..."Yeah, good thanks"......I mean we ask but do we really want to know? Do we want to stay and listen to the everyday aches and pains and ups and downs or do we then reply..."How are things with you?"......and really don't want to know, just being polite!
But there are those people in your life that will just listen, not try and fix you but accept that TODAY you are cranky...for whatever reason, real or imagined. My husband (bless him and I mean that sincerely) has learned that I will have days where I am not always pleasant and he still loves me. We all have those days when all the plans and anticipation of a long running project just don't come to fruition and out comes Mrs Cranky
I blocked that baby, waited days to see her dry and could not wait to stitch her up.
Well THAT didn't work well at all.....sure she looks straight there but meet her twisted sister
Note the angle of the handles in relation to the bag side.
And heres another torturous angle. I sewed her up and she wanted to twist the night away in her own direction. I tried everything to make her follow the right path but NOOOOOO! so I muttered and cursed and was ready to put her
1. in the time out drawer
2. in the bin
3. send her to a professional straightener
4. forget the whole thing
Her partners in crime.....what a hot mess!
Instead I then uttered the "F" word......FOCUS....(why what did you think I was going to say?)
I breathed a deep breathe and said to myself, "self "I said "pull yourself together, you going to let a little itty bitty piece of stitching bring you down?" "Yes!" I snivelled, "she is being mean to me"
And not just her. Look at this!
There were tension issues with this one, a bit of stuff was ripped out. Hey that sorta felt better....still back to the beginning and try again.....back on track ....feeling betterer.
Piping issues. undo and retry again. Patience poppet.
Fiddling and playing and don't care what happens here, not a lot of time or money invested. The shoulders are dropping
Oh YEAH...the cure to all cranky days.
And because I don't want you to leave feeling cranky I will pop in these calming sunset images. The beauty of nature.
Thank you so much for staying to chat even when its not all sweetness and light here. But that what life is all about.
