Do You Ever Just Gaze Instead Of Craft?

Weird title i guess for a blog post but lately it's something i find myself doing more and more.
I have loads to get on with and yet i sit at the desk and daydream about everything i can make and how i can make it. And do nothing!
Today was my day off from work so my aim was to finish off the 2 bags i have been working on all week. It took me literally all day as half the time i just sat gazing and thinking of how i would like to finish them off.
I have come to the conclusion it's either an age thing or just an artistic thing!!!
But the bags finally got finished and i am sooooo proud of the result, they are beautiful. I wouldnt usually say that about my own product but this time i will make an exception.
But you will have to wait til Monday to see them as i plan to unveil them on Handmade Monday when i know they will get a good viewing.
Below is a small teaser for you of the flower on the front of the bag!

And here is my listing in The March Hares challenge on folksy for day 4. No sales for me as yet this week but here's hoping.
A yellow and white padded heart wreath. Would look lovely in any home as a wall decoration.

Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time.


  1. Cant wait to see your bags the flower is so cute I spend half my time thinking its time I put some of it in to practise looking forward to following you x

  2. As you will have gathered, I have been staring at boxes of shells recently and only just produced my first item. The fabrics in that flower look lovely individually and are really well coordinated with each other - looking forward to seeing the bag!

  3. Can't wait to see the bag Lisa, the flower is gorgeous, loving the material :) I seem to spend far too much time thinking about what I should be doing rather than actually doing, so I know exactly how you feel!!

  4. Am so with you there Lisa - gazing instead of crafting, planning what I want the finished article to look like and reading other peoples blogs all takes me away from the actual job in hand! I love making things but I do think gazing goes with the making process too!!!
    I love that flower, beautifully made - can't wait to see the bag if your not too busy gazing away!!

  5. Definately.
    I will have a project ready and instead just gaze!
    Every teacher tells me my son looks like he's thinking but is actually daydreaming...guess he inherited gazing :o)

    Can't wait to see more of the gorgeous flower project. looks gorgeous.
