Knitting, reading, (and tea). My favourite things to complete a perfect day. So I am joining Ginny on Wednesdays for Yarn Along to share my passions with you. Come and join in if you like!
Hoorray, I might finish the first mitten in colorwork before easter! But, the scary part is still to come, the thumb... You see what I have to do next? I have to remove that piece of scrap yarn and insert needels into that wound... How scary is that??? And, I have to do the whole thing all over again... we'll see about that. But at least I am very happy with the way the pattern and my choice of color turned out.
|my writing scares you? me too! and my teachers... ;-)|
I have been reading my own notes lately which I wrote into my journal last year. And for once I feel good about what had been my plans at that time and what of that I have reached so far. Why I make plans in the middle of the year that sound a lot like new years resolutions? Well, I believe any time is better to make resolutions than new years because new years resolutions you may just make because of new years and not because you are ready for a change. But to make resolutions by the time you are ready for a change might really get you started. At least that's how it works with me. I had another really helpful push up though: Lisa Work. I was fortunate to win one of her workshops with Sew Liberated last year and that really set me up. It took a while and it didn't all work out as planned, but I still reached my aim, to have my own blog and especially to be far more productiv and creative on a regular basis. It makes me so very happy and satisfied. Thank you Lisa!
Soulemama readers will have noticed my journal being made by Nikki McClure. I just adore her paper cuts , I even framed a few prints of that journal... I wish the shipping of her calender to Europe wouldn't be that expensive :-(
My boy has been sick with high fever the last couple of days so there have been long nights, early mornings and a lot of cuddles and carrying. To keep me going I used my "drug", a beautiful Japanese Matcha tea. Preparing that tea takes time and a whole ceremonie which I will share with you in the coming days.
Last chance to take part in the candy give away, I'll choose the winner tonight :-)
