The second reason I've not been creating weird and wonderful things from fabric is that I have been writing.
Several years ago I wrote a novel, 54,000 words. Romantic fiction.
I found it recently when I was having a spring clean in my sewing room and going through some of the boxes of papers etc...
I opened it and reacquainted myself with the characters I had created all those years ago.
It was quite an emotional visit, and I know that sounds silly, but I spent months writing that original draft and I was responsible for shaping the lives of my hero and heroine and all those who came into contact with them.
It was like catching up with old friends and a while later I discovered I had been sitting on the floor with a pile of stuff all around me engrossed in the story. I still liked it.
I decided then that I needed to do something with it instead of just filing it away again.
So I decided to write a 2nd draft of it, mainly because I had written it in 1999, and I've done a lot of writing in one way or another since then, I thought it needed to be re-written.
Hopefully it will be finished by February and I will see if it is publishable.
Don't panic though, I'm making my way back into the sewing room, and I have loads of ideas for new projects and adventures in fabric...
But I just have to finish what I started many years ago :)
