When it comes to fire building, kindling matters. As a young Girl Scout, I spent a long time gathering sticks “thinner than your fingers.” While my friends would hurriedly lay their fire and begin to strike matches under a handful of kindling, I would fill my arms with the stuff before crouching with my match.
The same is true when it comes to starting new projects. This weekend I spent time sketching plans for a new vest, knitting a swatch, and gathering ideas and materials for a new fabric art piece. I’m so psyched!! (no hints except this picture!)
I wish I could begin striking matches tomorrow! I’ve already cast on and begun my knitting – that will have to be enough until next weekend when I can spread out on the table and get to work!
