Well today has been a really rewarding day. Why? I purged in a way that no bulimic ever has. Have you ever had one of those moments where you look at something that you've looked at for a long time, knowing you had to do something, then in a fit of frustration you've done it? That was me today. I started off just getting rid of the clothes that were hung up that bothered me. That wasn't enough, I was on a role. On total I cleared 3 whole garbage bags of things, mostly clothes, but craft books and old projects that I knew I would never wear ever again.
Look!! Closet space! Can you see how many spare hangers there are???
My room is purged and until the pay comes rolling in again I won't be in a position to afford to replace said purged items. But thats where crafty stuff comes in. I'm beginning to bargain with myself so I can sew (and by extension, teach myself to sew) on the weekends and build a wardrobe I want.
On other news. You know the driving test I was going to take? I failed. Just. I was aceing the test (four minor mistakes, which is really good) and the tester and I hit the dreaded reverse parallel park. I was going really well, chatting to the tester (really nice bloke btw, I hope they are all friendly like that) and I got caught in the moment and... I curbed it. First time in my life I have ever curbed the car on a reverse parallel and I did it in the test. Heartbreaking? Yes. But it was one way to blow $220 and a day off work.
Random Project Spectrum photo!
So with all this learning and everything, did I actually craft anything? Well yes my feeble, invisible friend, I did. However most of my weekend has involved frogging the crochet (swap stuff) because yesterday was the official lapse of judgement day. this mainly involved getting about halfway through a beanie before realising its gargantuan size would only fit the hulk. In pink.
Pretty blue sari style curtain, the pic makes it more blue than in real life, which I kinda like really...
Pretty sky! I love the blueness of the blue sky. Definitely my favourite colour. :D
Oh and since it IS February, and that kind of means Project Spectrum has actually STARTED, I have taken some 'blue' photos, because due to swapping stuff, there is no way I can even think about my socks (aka intended project for the blue category of project spectrum)
To all a good night!
