A Day in the Life

Today marks the beginning of the annual Knitting & Crochet Blog Week, organised by the lovely Mimi of Eskimimi Makes.

What I really enjoyed most about participating in last year's blog week is that Mimi organises the topics well in advance and offers suggestions and examples to help get those creative juices flowing.

There's been so much on the go here though, that I've been behind in planning things. Hence, what could be more appropriate for today's offering of "A Day in the Life" than perhaps some insight into one of the (many!) projects that gets abandoned along the way when the busy-ness happens!

Oh you darling little bunny, perhaps I'll get back to you before next Easter!

When my office has a tidy-up like it did last week, that's when the most WIPs are uncovered. They're things that I've started, and then been distracted by, like the poor sweet bunny above. 

To be fair, most WIPs fall by the wayside when deadlines loom or, as in the case of the amigurumi bunny, priorities shift to my crafty hat having to be replaced with my mommy hat. It was either crochet the bunny, or forego actually having Mr. H's packing list organised for his recent trip to Canada, not to mention my own packing for Paris!

But on an organisational office day, I like to think that this is how all my WIPs can end up - tidy in a devoted devoted little project basket and waiting for me, with the pattern, the tools and the materials to FINISH whatever has caught my fancy.

And for a while, these project baskets will sit on my workbench, full of promise and enticing me to come back to them, before they move to being a new day at the top of the WIP heap, or even head into the WIP BOX!

The pile o' WIPs. Sitting on top of the spinning WIP box, next to the mending on top of the knitting WIP box.

Sitting next next to the pile of mending, and awaiting their turn. Patiently.
