The other good thing is that in times like these I find crochet or knitting quite soothing and in the evenings I will work on something. To me, nothing would be worse than to sit and do nothing. Crochet is calming and I think the same about any craft. Many of you have said how you head to the craft room, sewing machine or painting in times of stress.
I find cooking the same somehow. So I will be cooking and crafting as part of making the best of things.
In the last few weeks I made a rug from lovely wool sent to me by Sue. Such a pretty colour...
Thanks so much Sue!
Then I made a rug which has gone to a charity. This was all bits and pieces that I had in the cupboard.
Last week I actually bought some yarn as I really have none left. I am making myself some infinity scarves... these are my colours, smoky jewel tones. (kind of!)
It has started to get really cold at night. Out came the rugs and blankets. I keep a rug on the lounge and put this one on the bed. It is a blanket I made a couple of years ago that is really thick and heavy. It covers a whole Queen sized bad and drapes down the sides. It weighs a ton.
I would love to make another blanket like this but I would need to save up a huge amount of wool!
Today is gorgeous and sunny. It is Andy's first day at his new job! And I am off to Aldi to shop. This is a good day!
What are you working on at the moment? A project you are enjoying adds a lot to daily happiness I have to say! A project you are looking forward to is exciting! Even learning a new stitch is exciting! The rug above is Pineapple stitch that I followed on You Tube. It was so much fun to do. Life became about getting to the end of each row!
See you on Friday... I already know I have had a much better week and have lots to report! xxx
