I just want to state, for the record, that I suffer from ‘too hard basketitis’*.
Basketitis has plagued me throughout my crafting days and after yesterday I am certain that I have missed many a crafting opportunity.
A few weeks back, on one of my first ‘kid free’ days, I went shopping with the thrifting master. I had some great finds, one of them being this knitting/project ensemble.
Now, let it be known that I was unsure about purchasing this. It needed a fair amount of TLC and I wasn’t sure I was the one who could do it but I did have the most perfect and appropriate piece of fabric that was made for this job.
Kirst was adamant, ‘you can do it, have a crack’.
Well, have a crack I did but not without her cracking the whip**
Kirst directed and I sewed. The result? The most perfect project holder, which will forever remind me to ‘have a crack’.
*A condition that strikes many a crafter. It leaves them feeling like they simply cannot ever hope to make the item in question and it is generally caused by laziness and lack of whip cracking.
**Telling me what to do, every step of the way…could not have done it without her x
