Why do you do this again?

 

It’s a question that I ask myself halfway through nearly every project. Usually when I’m working on it tired. Word to the wise, don’t work on projects when you’re tired. Injuries and swearing results. In fairness, everything I do is lightly peppered with expletives, from making breakfast to trying not to get blood on a sewing project. (If you’ve ever fucked up with a pin, seam ripper or cutting device, you know what I’m talking about.)

 

But in seriousness. I allude to this every so often, but I find the winter affects my mood pretty severely sometimes. And owing to my own stupidity during college way back when, I have RSI in my right arm, which periodically makes actually making things quite painful, if not impossible.

 

So why do I do it? Because of the release I get when I finish a gift in the nick of time, the buzz when I wear a dress I’ve made to a work party. Because even making lists of what I want to make, and picking out the right materials to achieve it, and then actually pulling it off? It’s a rush. It keeps me going when the nights are too long and the days are too dark. Sometimes, the thought of a friend’s face when they see that thing that’s made me giggle for two weeks while working on is enough. Any of these things would make it worthwhile, but all of them? Makes you wonder why you even asked, right?

 

I have a week off coming up after Christmas. I can’t wait, I’m going to get so much stuff made! (I hope.) I’ll definitely do a tutorial for the Eblana crew, and I’m hoping to do something for my own LT social kit and some monster gear. It’ll keep me out of trouble if nothing else!
