Finished skirt?

Last week was a tough week, but on top of everything, I've had this overwhelming sense of pressure to complete unfinished projects. Like all mums, there seems to be an endless list of jobs to complete, there are days where I don't even know where to start. I can't imagine what it must be like to be on top of things, have everything in order, checklist full of ticks. The desire for a clear head often makes me consider a blog post, it's like a feeling of achievement without having done anything other than gather my thoughts.

Having started my skirt last week (check out the pattern here) and then deciding to add a crocheted edge, I have been working on it pretty much everyday. A hand crocheted edging to a skirt is no mean feet and it's the sort of thing that you just have to keep going with until it's done.  However having finished the white crocheted edge this morning, I am now wondering whether it might look even better with a green picot trim, my husband suggested lining the skirt and I already had aspirations for some kind of stylish pocket. And off go my thoughts again, adding even more items to my lists of things I need to or more to the point want to do.

Before getting consumed by the 'what ifs' of life, I put on the skirt and went roller skating along the sea front at Margate with my family. I did after all make the skirt for wearing. (I've ordered some green crochet thread though, so watch this space.)
