Plan One: a new skirt with some spotty/circly material purchased today (by my mum, for me). I may ask Imogen to make this, in return for some awesome favour to be agreed upon before sewing commences. Imogen has an over-locker, so tidiness is on her side. That girl also has some mean sewing skillz, and a knack for teeny tiny paper cranes…
Plan Two: Garlands. I pulled all the stamps I liked out of an old anonymous stamp album which has been making itself un-useful for many years. A quick search on TradeMe revealed that this album is worth all of three dollars! But so much more in craft materials value. So I pulled ’em out, organised them into colours, got slightly sentimental and worked out how to make them into garlands without destroying them completely… and then put them away as the bebe had arrived home… but tomorrow is another day!
Plan Three: to make some more brooches to put into the jewellery cabinet at my mum’s work. I’m not a shoe-in, but this is easier than traipsing about town trying to find a stockist. I am shy. And lazy. And just not cut out for the selling of my craft in retail terms.
And I suppose there is also a Plan Four: Finishing the notebook I started with the gold embossed leather cover (a new bookmaking technique) and either a) giving to Imogen or b) selling it to the Paekakariki Beach Store.
