Life Lesson # 645: Time Management

Yep, procrastination is one of my biggest weaknesses. I'm an all-or-nothing sort of person (not that you've probably noticed :P), and I've been spending so much time on my tapestry weaving, that I've completely neglected the wool dyeing component of my course.

I posted my 4th assignment on Monday (I will post pics soon - but I'm sitting in my office at work at the moment!), and my dyeing assignment is due to be posted next Wednesday - PANIC!

Last weekend was a write-off due to fun social things (and I picked up my new Ashford tapestry loom - eeeee!), so I started dyeing on Tuesday. I'm actually enjoying it more than I expected! I've completed the red and blue ranges over 2 nights (staying up until midnight, which is a bit rough when I have to get up at 5.00 the next morning :/), and will do the blue-green and black tonight, and the yellow tomorrow night. The weekend will be spent doing the colour pyramid, so I'm pretty much on schedule to post by Wednesday.

Hopefully I've now learned my lesson about procrastination ... the next few tapestry and dyeing assignments have very short timeframes, so I'll REALLY have to concentrate on my time management!
