Yes, I'm late today for my date with 'the beads'. Had a few long newsy phone calls this morning, then I sat down to sort thru my stash. Looking for treasures for a project, that I'm not sure I have enough of what I need, to make the design I have in mind. I culled thru every black, white and red bead and dodad in my stash and I'm going to spend the afternoon seeing if I get inspiration or just frustration. My days at the work bench are like that---sometimes I see exactly what I want, and other times I sit down and work, rework and rework again with nary an idea pleasing the eye. I do usually sit down with an idea, but sometimes it just doesn't look like I visualized when it starts going together. I envy people who draw a design, pull the exact components and put their design together neat and nice. I'm afraid my workbench looks like a bomb went off most times when I'm working on a project/projects. When I get going, like I did last week...there are bits and pieces of everything piled up, until I settle back into a 'I can't stand the chaos' mood and decide to take a day to resort, organize and put things back in their place... so I can start the whole process over, lol.
It's sad when my husband and daughter get home and ask how my day was, or what I did and I look at them glassy eyed and try to think of anything productive that came to fruition that day. Today I have something already--I did some laundry. That counts for productivity, right? Especially if your hubby's on his last pair of socks! I've got it covered!!!
