So here I am again without a finished post and it is getting too late to finish the one I have half done - it will come Monday. So I thought I would share a little of what crafting time looks like for me at the moment.
We are currently in Rome - it is a little bit sticky and we have been taking the kids to "the" sights. As it is now the European summer, that involves people and queues that are somewhat unimaginable in sunny Australia. We limit ourselves to one thing a day (because we know our/their limits), before returning to the flat for some reading or colouring. There are few spaces in my day when I am alone and even fewer where there isn't something that needs to be done. The fella and I were talking yesterday about the fact that "freestyle overland travel" is not exactly the same thing as a "relaxing holiday". We were a little naive methinks about what life would look like on the road ;).
So crafting - Life as it currently stands means that knitting is not exactly relaxing-with-a-cup-of-tea crafting. I'm not really able to knit in the campsite/flat due to the aforementioned jobs. Instead I've moved to mobile crafting in order to scratch the itch. Crafting is more along the lines of standing in a queue, with small people who are hungry or need to go to the toilet, using knitting as a way to keep on smiling. And car knitting - oh how I love car knitting! We leave tomorrow to get back to camping which means there will be a few hours of click-clack which I am super excited about.
I know that school holidays have just finished at home so I am guessing that crafting slowed down for a bit? I would love to hear about how you fit your making into your holidays….or are you infinitely more sensible and give it up until some space returns?
