(no pictures, so if you’re here for those, see you later! I intend to do a project post this weekend, so not too long to wait 🙂 )
Time management has always been something I’ve struggled with, mostly because I was a clever kid. Not needing to spend ages on homework doesn’t exactly prepare you for having to spend ages on work… Having fun crafting projects around doesn’t exactly make it easy to choose the work.
So this year I’m going to try and spice things up. Work has to come first- I’m graduating this year, after all. But I’m also going to try to be a one-project girl. Well, two sometimes. One main project, and then the sock yarn blanket if it isn’t portable. Christmas presents before anything else. When they’re all done, I’ll figure out what I want to finish, and have at it.
At the moment, my currently project is this blanket. I’m on the last stripe, and then I need to block it all, sew it together, darn in ends and do the embroidery. When that’s finished, I’ll find my list of Christmas presents, and see what I want to do next.
I’m also hoping to get a handle on how long crafting projects take. So, to that end I’m going to start keeping a record as to how long projects take. I’ll write down the time I start and stop working on something, and while it won’t be perfect, I think I’ll find it interesting. And maybe the fact that that’s going to be rather annoying all the time, it might encourage me to choose maths work over crafting sometimes!
So, my lovely followers, who among you keep track of the time it takes you to finish a project? Any tips about it for me? Any other comments about this? I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.
