|Three of my current WIP|
Instead of actually completing any of my own projects I seem to be spending a lot of time reading about other people's completed works. This is getting to be a bad habit for me - I read blog posts in the morning before work and then again in the evening when I get home. The time I use to spend doing or making has now turned into just reading about other people's doing and making. This is not good really and I shall try to limit this - any good ideas you could share about managing your blog reading time?
And yet doing all this reading has led to two very good things recently.
I was reading Jeri's blog post at My Modern Vintage about being stuck in a sewing rut and not having the motivation to get on and do the alterations that she needed to do. She asked for some advice and she liked my comment so much that she offered to send me the pattern of my choice from her stash! How lovely was that? Then not only did she send me the one I chose (pattern on the right) but when I opened the envelope there were my second and third choices!
|Thank you very much Jeri! x|
The other nice thing that has happened because of too much blog reading is that I was able to offer two stars and a wish (teacher lingo for constructive comments) to Alison who blogs at Another Little Crafty Creation . Alison put all the commenter's names into a
|What a pretty bundle: sewing themed sticky notes, two ribbons, chocolate,|
1 metre of liberty lawn, dressmakers notebook and hand stitcher's wax,
which I have long wanted to try!
So really, perhaps the time I take to read and comment on blogs isn't wasted time at all.
