We arrived home from our camping trip on Monday afternoon, exhausted. We stopped briefly at my parents, to shower!! and gift my mom a birthday present/card, as we drove north. Once home we got stuff put away, laundry started, and then just collapsed! The weekend was too funny, actually one of the best in terms of laughter, but mostly it was about our situation. IT WAS SO FREAKING HOT!!! Our 2018 Camp word is now, Oscillate. Cause we all had fans on full blast sitting outside in the shade!!! We are used to gentle Fall temps, but the state park’s were full on the dates we wanted so we tried a Labor Day weekend. Never again! We have decided 3rd weekend of October from here on out.
Since home I have had no desire to craft. I have plans I want to put into play, but no desire to get them under the needles. I finally picked up an in progress afghan square on Friday, just because I had over 200 blog posts to catch up on! Sad to say I skimmed tons of them, but I have caught up on all your recent FOs, starts, and life. When I said I wasn’t into crafting, it also meant I avoided my sewing/knitting/computer room completely.
Hopefully today I am cutting some fabric and starting a new project. I guess maybe it’s been a let down from the two I recently finished. That point where you are paralyzed about starting a new project because of various reasons. I need to start having more than 1 on the go so I have something to fall back on when the other ends. So maybe I will start 2! Here are the ones in contention:
- Mini Dashing using these fabrics plus a lime green (that I can’t remember where or when I got! LOL)
- Titch the small one with gold sashing. I will use the teal and taupe fabrics I have been collecting. May throw in a black for accent.
- Fall Leaves definitely needs to get going so I can display it during September. No fabric pull yet, but I have tons of fall fabrics to choose from. Planning to make a leaf in red, gold, plum, green and orange.
- Anthem but I am missing the navy fabric I need.
So, not a lot to share this week, tomorrow’s Stash Report will be dismal, but then again, nothing purchased, nothing gained?
