It is a good feeling indeed to finish off jobs that need finishing off.
I have never been a particularly good finisher-off-er. I’m the sort that gets all enthused by a project and gets stuck in, only to then get all enthused by another project, and then another, until the available enthusiasm gets spread a bit thin across them all and… well, you can guess the rest.
As a grown-up I’ve learned to organise myself a bit to curb this tendency. But sometimes, just sometimes, projects fall off the list altogether for a while and I end up not doing what I should have done. For which I feel awful, because it can mean that I have let someone down.
These little ladies started out as twirly fairies. But unfortunately, due to being rushed off my feet before Christmas, and events with the dog, they missed their opportunity for festive twirling.
So once I got back on track (and stopped being “stuck“) they got their skirts shortened a little. And now, they have become something else entirely – pretty petite pins, to grace a garment, adorn your lapel, or even decorate your Easter bonnet.
They are available to buy from Sarah Campbell’s shop.
Thankfully, that “stuck” feeling has dissipated with the move towards springtime.
The flowers are pushing up through the still-cold earth and unfurling leaves and petals – and so, it seems, am I.
I think perhaps it is natural to have a dormant, fallow period before spring bursts forth, after all the rushing about up to Christmas.
I can’t say I like it much though – and I, for one, am pretty glad it’s over. ♥
