I'm not sure how it works for you all, but in my craft room I always have an inbox. My inbox is filled with projects that need to be fixed or redone in some way. I normally wait and wait and wait before starting my inbox. I'm not sure why, but the idea of sitting down for a whole stack of hemming just doesn't appeal to me. Yesterday I decided to crank through my inbox. In the end I fixed holes in a girlfriends pair of jeans, hemmed 3 pairs of Mike's pants, fix a pair of Mike's bike shorts that were ripped and removed a zipper from a sweater I made for Mike and place in a new jacket zipper. All in all it took me a few hours, but it was worth it just to finish up and empty out the inbox (which is now empty and looks fantastic).
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
