does not compute (help wanted)

How is it that as I’m gearing up for finals and my thoughts should turn to criminal procedure and evidence the crafty-side of my brain kicks into overdrive? I’ve spent my lunch hour doodling a possible bag pattern on a piece of scratch paper rather than taking notes on the last evidence assignment of the semester. (Marital privileges? zzzz….) But I had to get this idea on paper…it’s a kind of bag I see around a lot and I think I’ve finally figured out how to make it? The only way now is to just run out and do it…

I suspect that this plan will have to wait for another week and a half when exams (yikes!) will be behind me. If I’m not a total vegetable by then, I’ll have three days to clean, pack up, and craft before I head home (Seattle) for the holidays. I fear this year that I will suffer serious separation anxiety from my sewing machine. But even I can’t justify hauling that thing to my parents place.* All that free time and no means of crafting? I can only hope that all the knitting and emboidery I bring along will console me.

I have two outstanding swap obligations I have to fulfill before I take off for the holidays, one with Carolyn and one with Sharon. Both involve a little crafting so I will have to fit in the work whenever possible.

*Jeff’s probably laughing as he’s reading this because last summer we’d argued over whether or not I could fit my sewing machine into an already jam-packed Subaru en route to DC…it did not, I grudgingly left it in storage, and then got an even better sewing machine that summer. But I was working then and making money; I probably couldn’t justify such a replacement over the break…I will only be away from little craft den for 3.5 weeks.

  1. No, I’m laughing because the harder (and more important) your academic demands get… the more time you spend on crafts. 🙂

  2. Stop the madness! Don’t make me stage a crafting intervention and take away all your yarn!
    It doesn’t have to be this way, please remmebr to craft responsibly this holiday season
