It's been a long time baby

My poor blog and life has had a major crafty drought lately.  Not even lately really, more like for Ages.  I think the last time I picked up and did some craft was almost two months ago.  No wonder its been so incredibly boring reading about my life lately!

I was thinking about this for two reasons.  One, I was over at Homely One and Amanda had just posted about putting things off.  No crafty projects til the house is spick and span.  Now I definitely do not have this problem, my house is never spick and span and I think MR and my family would fall over dead if they came home to / visited a clean and (more to the point) tidy house.  I have mentioned before about my very helpful sister who actually likes to organise and comes over to my house and Dad's house to organise us messy ones. 

I do however suffer from Puttingthingsoffitis.  I am a great thinker-about projects and a great buyer-of-stuff-for projects but I am not so good a starter-of projects and I am a downright dreadful finisher-of projects.  For no particular reason alright, I'm a bit lazy.  And I like to read.  And the energy levels have been a bit low of late.

a poor neglected stack of chunky wool to work into a scarf this weekend,
providing I can unearth one of my three chunky hooks to whip it up
(nice and quickly so no time for puttingthingsoffitis)

Which brings me to my second thought.  Enforced crafting time is helpful.  But it can't be enforced without someone to enforce it!  So a place to do it and some people to do it with makes it even better.  Yay for Brown Owls!  I didn't make it last month, but I'm looking forward to this month.  It's on this weekend in fact.  So if you are in Perth and feel like some craftiness and some friendly chatter (let me know) and come along  with whatever you're working on and a gold coin towards tea/coffee/hall hire to the Drill Hall, cnr Murray and Crowther Streets in Bayswater from 2 - 4pm this Sunday 19th June.

We'd love to see you there!

Procrastination is one of my middle names at the moment. That's why I must have a nap, so I feel a bit more energetic and able to tackle a few things.
I have some of that green Shiver, which is really appropriate, it's -1 here tonight!!
I would NEVER do any crafty things if the house had to be tidy!!!

Ah yes it is hard to read and crochet at the same time :-)
