Thanks to the wonderful website Retro Renovation (http://retrorenovation.com/), I have just discovered Erica Wilson, who I must admit that, up until yesterday, I had not heard of. Erica was long renowned in craft circles for her beautiful and innovative needlework and she hosted a TV show in the 1970s called simply "Erica" (see clip below). I love the green in that room and the jaunty little tune at the start!
Watching this clip yesterday, I got to thinking about how I would love to stitch a large canvas. I spent last night going through a number of embroidery books that I have and I picked out quite a few promising designs. Then I saw a knitting pattern for an easy-to-make shrug. Yes, put that on the 'to-do' pile too. Then I thought, when am I going to do all this? I have all these craft projects that I am really keen on and really want to get done but I never seem to get around to them. I make small amounts of progress but the weekends seem to often be devoted to other things and I am usually tired in the evenings and tend to just watch TV or read.
So, I wonder, when do you get your crafting done?
