I found some time yesterday evening to do a little bit of crafting and design work and I discovered something. I should stop sewing when I start to get tired. My first project was a cute leopard mask. which I managed to finish right around 7:30pm after my boys and the baby had gone to bed. I was on a roll and in the mood to keep designing so I started into another design for Wasp from "The Avengers". I worked at it and sewed and redesigned and cut felt clear up until about 10:30pm when I was ready to scrap the entire thing and break into tears. I was exhausted and unhappy with the entire design.
Fortunately I have a very supportive husband who recognized the signs of exhaustion that I was in denial about because I quote: "Just want to get this right". He convinced me to set it aside and come back to it another day when I am feeling less tired and more fresh. So here is my new leopard mask design now available at Our Cozy Creations on Etsy. And Wasp you may ask? More to come on her when I figure out what needs to change with her design.
So a note to myself and any other crafters who tend to find themselves frustrated late at night while working on a project. Take a break, get some sleep and start again fresh another day.
