It’s sunday sewing day!

Hello and welcome back to the Miss Libby Rose newsletter! You can click on the video above to hear me chat about updates and musings for this week. 
Valentines day is over and now we can get stuck in to some sewing and making! Ive had quite a lot on with administration and contracts over these past few months and I’ve really missed making and sewing on a regular basis. I know that with the upcoming shows and events this will all change, but for now I’d love to share my latest button-up make!

We are making a button-up wallet and I will take you through all these steps below…

How do you get all your ideas down? I know that my best ideas come when I am resting so I keep a notebook handy by my bed to jot it all down! I wondered if you do this too or what’s your thoughts on getting ideas into action?
I have found the book / audio ‘The Artists way’ very benefecial to me over the years in getting my creative-ness into some ordered thought patterns.. Do check it out if you haven’t before…

Click on the video above and join me in making a BIG BUTTON-up wallet!
In this sewing class we are making a cute ‘button-up wallet’ with a huge button from my friends at Hobbycraft.
You will need 2 x fat quarters pieces, a big button, iron, seam ripper, sewing machine, hand sewing needle & thread, scissors, button hole foot…

Lists, Lists, Lists

So here I am ready to admit to the world that guess what? (SHOCK! HORROR!) I looovve a list! YES I do, I write them daily and sometimes hourly! There are lists for other people, lists for me and sometimes even lists for Elliott (The Pug) and I know, I have read the business literature that says if these lists aren’t ‘SMART’ they could be causing more damage than they are doing good. Lists are supposed to un-clutter our minds (and you know me by now, I am all about un-cluttering my mind and living a peaceful life) where in fact they are usually making a mountain out of a mole-hill and over busying ourselves for the sake of of being over-busy!

SOOOO, I was absolutely delighted the other day while on a #sewingtour trip to Newcastle there was  Radio 4 programme hosted by the gorgeous Jenny Eclair all about LISTS! Did you hear it? Let me re-cap for you..

“Comedian and writer Jenny Eclair throws away her To Do list. She wants to understand why women write so many lists and what life would be like without them.”

“She discovers there are to-do lists, to-buy lists, to take-back lists, holiday lists and even secret lists of hidden yearnings. Jenny talks to good friend and producer Judith Holder about her own lists. Judith has a small library of books, each with a different list inside. Jenny realises she’s on the nursery slopes of lists by comparison.”

BUT I do think we need lists – I certainly need a list to get up in the morning so I am not overwhelmed with all the ‘to-do’s’ going on in my head!

So how do we get SMART with our lists?
SMART is a ‘mnemonic acronym‘ giving us a guide in order to set objectives: In personal development, the letters S and M usually mean specific and measurable: then the remaining letters referring to achievable, relevant and time-bound… I often get asked to use this ‘SMART’ method when writing up proposals but I think we can use it on our lists too. So let’s get SMART. There are so many fantastic helpers out there on this subject, Jenny talks to a coach Juliet Landau-Pope about how to get smart with the lists by prioritizing our lists (do listen if you can it’s right at the end of the recording).

I am a big fan of the book ‘The One Thing’ by Gary Keller. I listen (on Audible) to this time and time again to get myself on the straight and narrow with lists and daily tasks.  I especially like the content in Chapter 7 when he talks about multi-tasking and list making. Get your lists and dwindle it right down to ‘The One Thing’ to do today – this minute – and do that… Sound simple? I know it does sound simple but as creatives I feel that this is a big block for us. We often multi task with our brains flitting from one thing to the next. So write it down to get it out of your head then do one thing! I am serious – it works!

If you want to learn more about ‘The One Thing’ here’s a link to the website, there are some great free resources on there, although some are quite corporate so I generally steer clear of that, but if you wade through you can see bits that can really relate and help, hey they have for me and that’s saying something!


PS: I am soo excited to discover that Jenny Eclair is coming to the Great British Sewing Bee Live at EXCEL!
