I’m getting the itch to pull out my sewing machine again.  I’ve been fighting the itch for a few weeks for a few reasons, the chief of which is when it comes to crafting, I don’t want to be a “Jack of all Trades”.  That might sound crazy but if you know the entire saying — it’s “Jack of All Trades, Master of None” — you should understand my dilema.   My thing is that I want to be Mistress of all the crafty endeavors I try.  I want to be technically sound with really well-done end products.  I don’t want to be a crafty butterfly, just flitting from one thing to the next never actually achieving proficiency at anything.  Am I the only one torn between all there is to craft?  Let me know in the comments how you manage being multi-craftual (yes … a made up word)  if you are.

Since I seem powerless right now (or it could just be indiscipline)  😳   to stop myself from responding to said itch, I’m getting acquainted with:


these stacks

P.S. Did I also mention that the below is calling me also?


It’s a cross-stitch pattern.  🙄

Someone point me to the nearest crafty rehab group please?

What’s grabbing your attention for summer crafting?  I’d love to hear!
