Mood board - I think I choose rag rug




Darlings! You are the sweetest. Truly. I know that sounds sugar thick and sticky but I really mean it. These last weeks has been everything but a dance on roses. I have received so many messages from you all and I am sorry, but it will impossible for me to reply to each and everyone of you in person. I hope you don't mind, I usually do my best staying on top of those things but lately all that has slipped way out of hand. Forgive me and know I read every word and smile every time you pop in to say hi. If I have missed to reply on a question, don't give up. Just write me again and I'll answer it shortly.

Well, so what has been going on around here? A lot! I have so much to share but I will have to take it one thing at a time. I'm settling in to my unemployed lifestyle which is fitting in perfectly with the hectic last few weeks of school with all the school shows, sports games, excursions and special events going on.

I am still on crochet restriction which also means computer/mouse/keyboard/iPhone/tablet restriction... Not so fun, right? I don't scream for ice cream - I scream for all the things I'm restricted from!!! And most of all I scream for my hook and yarn! Well, it is what it is and I am playing it cool. I rather stay away now and recover, than have to stay away for a loooong time later. I have to play my cards right...

To distract myself I decided to figure out a color palate for my studio and started playing around with things I like. Creating a mood board. It started out fairly nice but soon got waaaaay out of control. No matter how hard I try to stick to a theme I seem to loose my balance and just wanting it all in the end. Pastels and brights. Traditional and exotic. Romantic and bold. Well, maybe I should get a rag rug wallpaper... I seem to be a rag rug girl.  Little bit of this and a little bit of that, moving with my mood; happy in brights one day, cool in blues another... It is what it is. I can't force myself to be something I'm not. I am a bit of a rag rug girl.

So, decisions, decisions... Pistachio or granny powder pink??? Or maybe mustard... I might just go with delicate light blue... Or bold aqua green... Who knows what mood I will be in when I hit the hardware store.

  7. So glad to hear you're enjoying your time, you have such a supportive community here! :-) I totally agree with the difficulty of choosing a set colour, because all our moods change! Maybe that's why I stick to neutral paints then embellish with colourful accessories...you could just have a big cork board on a white wall and hang a length of pretty fabric each week! Chrissie x

  8. That is a wonderful name, rag rug girl, I am sure that it applies to me, at least part of the time. Some days I can focus and zoom in on a group of colours/patterns/shapes with no hesitation, another day I dither and prevaricate. Those are the days that scrappy/crazy sewing takes over or i give up and reach for a book. Whatever it is called I just go with the flow. I empathize with your restrictions, it is not easy when your fingers and mind ache to create. Fingers crossed that it will not be too long before you can enjoy your crafting agai.
