So, I think that being on a break from school and being busy crafting has finally taken a toll on my ability to sleep at night. In the past, I have dreamed about a particular project - for example, if I'm thinking about crocheting a neckwarmer, I might have a dream about how to construct it, how many rows, etc. that actually helps me out when I wake up. I've also dreamed that I had found the perfect bag, with just the right number/size of pockets, and I desperately try to remember it so I can sketch out plans to make it.

But last night was just ridiculous! I remember I had one dream that a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie was at the theaters, and I wanted to make a costume for my husband to wear, so I made an ascot for him out of a used napkin. Then I must have had another dream, about knitting or something, because I woke up and actually thought "I should not have my knitting needles and yarn next to my bed" (which is where they currently are).

Anyone else ever do this?? I feel like I really need classes to start so that I can go back to that frantic, no dreaming, get it while you can type of sleeping. Please comment to make me feel better. Smiley

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Constantly - and it varies.  Either I dream about a project being done already or has been done in the past.  Or I dream I am in a store and shopping for materials (my favourite), or I have weird dreams but I am crafting in them (like that weird one where I was doing something in the kitchen, like baking cookies, or baking up some clay or something and I dreamt my dad came in, chopped my arm off, and it turned into a bat and flew away - very very weird dream).  I also have ideas that come in my dreams and keep pens and a notepad or paper by the bed for those.  I had one in university that lead to me completely changing my thesis for a paper and re-writing it at 2 am the day it was due. 

I love and hate the shopping ones - I love the dreams themselves, they are so realistic, and I actually feel like I am in the stores, handling the merchandise, thinking of the things I need for projects, purchasing them.  Then I wake up and it is such a let down :C

wow, you very-very-very love crafting, for it to happen in your dreams.

No, I don't have any crafting dream while sleeping.

But I do hope I can make a costume one day (I can't sew), so that's can
only stay as a dream.  Undecided

Your dreams are awesome! I don't think I've dreamed about crafting, but I have had numerous dreams about receiving swap packages in the mail and opening them. In one dream, all my partner sent was a Snakes on a Plane DVD.  Cheesy  Cheesy

Wow, MandyLikesPie, that would be a sad, sad swap!  Cheesy I'm glad I'm not the only one with craft-related dreams.

I know exactly how this is too ... you find something PERFECT in a dream, and then you wake up and have to face the fact that it doesn't exist! They can be very inspirational, but at the same time, it's disappointing!
