Day 25: How will you be vulnerable?How will you tend to your vulnerabilities, shield them, make them advantageous?
Um ick. I don't know. In a craft sense, I am vulnerable to overreach and try and do lots of things for other people (unrequested by them) when I should focus on some stuff I need to get done. I don't know how much I want to really temper the instinct to make nice things for people who will like them, but I do want to become more targeted to ensure I make things people will appreciate and get my stuff done too. My planning lists may help with that, plus working more which will likely mean less time / energy to make stuff :(
Day 26: How will you make time?Hahahahahahaha.
Seriously, I will have about the same or less time than in 2012. I will make time by picking myself off the couch after the kids are in bed and doing some sewing / knitting. I will get in a few dedicated sewing days on annual leave days or by agreement with husbandio. I will sneak in a bit with the kids "helping" or busy elsewhere in the house, though not much. It isn't ideal but it works for me so far.
Day 27: How will you honour your creativity?I made a few patterns up from scratch last year - I would like to do more of that.
Day 28: How will you overcome *those* fears?Three things that daunted you in 2012 that you will defeat in 2013.
- Sewing bras
- Sewing well fitting pants
- Learning to pattern draft.
They aren't really fears so much as skills I want to master fully. I will do this by trying and failing, asking for advice, lots of googling and buying books and patterns until I get it right.
More soon :)
