Dreaming big in miniature!!
I thought I'd share my list of want-to-do-projects with you. On re-reading it, I realise that a lot of my inspiration comes from the books that I read and love.
I'll never, ever get them all done (especially if I keep on being a perfectionist procrastinator), but I keep the list for ideas when I can't think forward, or need something new to make.
I've started to collect things for the ones marked *
