I'm still around.
It's been a busy summer--family trips, company in town, ups & downs, life in general, and lately some Olympic viewing. My kiddos head back to school in a couple of weeks so things should start to return to a normal schedule.
I have not had much crafty time at all. I have been knitting randomly on one project all summer. I have been looking for inspiration on Ravelry and I have some yarn that I think MUST have in my stash. . .Twisted Fiber Arts. One of my friends finished a shawl in some of this yarn and WOW it is stunning. If you go check out the site, make sure you look at the Evolutions yarn. . .amazing stuff. If I can decide on a colorway, I will be ordering some for an Ene from Scarf Style.
I cross stitched briefly in July. I am still redoing page one from the HAED Freebie SAL. I think that I may need to just put that piece aside because it makes me angry every time I have to work on that page. . .I have never had to restitch an entire page and it really gets to me.
This fall I am hoping to get into a groove with my usual chores, decluttering my house(specifically, cleaning out the basement), my workouts(I have some weight loss goals I WILL hit by the end of the year), stitching, knitting, and other crafting I have been wanting to try, and I can't forget reading--I have quite the back log of books I am trying to get through.
There is never enough time in the day for everything you want to do.
Enjoy the last big month of summer!
