Moving Right Along

 I surprised myself this weekend and got some "chores" done.  I say chores because they were projects I really didn't have the desire to pick up. I was not loving working on this stitching project because it's so darn small but with a good light and a good book to listen to I actually had so much fun with it that I almost got that apple tree knocked out.



 Then there was poor Spiral Chicken. She's been gathering dust all summer. Literally. Now she's got her first flower to keep her company. Again, I had to force myself to pick her up but when I did I had a jolly old time.



Finally, yesterday  morning I pulled a comfy chair up to my Echo and listened to podcasts while I turned the heel on all these socks. Not bad for a lazy weekend.

  2. You got loads done. I sat and knit every minute I could and made some good progress on my Zick Zack shawl. It is a super fun project. Have a great week.

  3. I'll say not bad at all!!!! I get the rug hooking bug when I see yours but then I get reasonable again--I just can't add another minute. I will enjoy your progress!

  4. Great progress on all of these projects. I haven't felt like sewing or knitting - maybe I need to force myself to work on one or both.

  8. Way to go Debra! You made great progress. Isn’t that the way sometimes? We dread doing something and then when we finally do it, we find out it wasn’t so bad after all. Blessings, Betsy

  9. That's the kind of "work" I'd like to do! I say that having sat through 8 hours of "professional development." Thank goodness for knitting. I don't know how my non-knitting colleagues handle it.

  11. I just love all your projects. That cross stitch is darling.
    Rug hooking has always appealed to me, but I'm trying to resist the siren's call.
