a look back at what I've been up to, and happy Star Wars day!
May the 4th be with you - always ...
representing A New Hope at work
Star Wars bag
Ah, even though Star Wars Day is just a pun-day (oh nice, if I do say so myself!) I do like to get a little giddy with it, and this year I'm wearing a classic poster t-shirt (thank you Lucy!), carrying my dark side tote bag, and Jedi Totoro is doing the rounds with me at work and while I potter about. I plan on watching at least 2 of the films tonight if I can manage it (sorry die-hards, I do love The Phantom Menace so that's probably one!) and I bought The Force Awakens on blu-ray at the weekend, but I've already watched that twice since then, don't want to over watch it too soon.
Now it's usually about this time in the month that I will let you know how my crafty plans got on, and what I am aiming to do this month. In April if you recall I switched up the style a little and made my goals a little more informal, and threw a life goal in there too.
GUYS this IS FINISHED!! But where is the photographic, joyous proof I hear you ask? Well, the cardigan is knitted and sewn together, but it's not steamed, the ends aren't woven in, and I was supposed to buy buttons last Saturday but got distracted at a splendid cocktail bar in Manchester, so the shop was closed by the time I got there - oops. But fear not, a final update will be forthcoming!
Craft for pure pleasure
I killed two birds with one stone on this one, as it turned out I really fell in love with working on the Sophie Cardigan again once I'd worked out all the uncomfortable maths. So TV and chilling was had!
Find a new job
OH I was so close, I had a really great interview for a job I really wanted, but unfortunately I didn't get it - lost out to someone more experienced. As much of a bummer that that is, they were very praising of my interview and application and said I couldn't improve on that, so they will keep me in mind for future roles, so the door isn't totally closed on that one. But I am so ready to move on and face something new, I will keep looking and just hope the positive thinking works again this month (only better).
So you see, it all worked reasonably well, but I'm in a bit of a stump with working life at the moment, and its all seeping into my moods and what not. So in the interest of not worrying myself, this month I won't set any goals in the hopes that my creative juices will flow and I will have lots to talk to you about anyway! And then in June I hope to organise my second ever craft swap! So a month without 'deadlines' will help the thought process on that I am sure!
Hope you all get to enjoy the sunshine today, and watch as many Star Wars films as you can!!
