I successfully holed myself up in my sewing room for about 5 hours straight today, and I'm pretty happy with my results--can't wait to post them on Monday! Of course, now I, and our whole bedroom, smell like sports cream ( I hold a LOT of tension in my shoulders & neck, esp while sewing.) Tomorrow, I'll do it all over again. Really want to have lots to show for my first Market Monday! Who's with me? What are your plans for Friday?
Follow-up on creative passion series: Tonight, I was brought to tears by a chapter discussing whether knitting can be a true addiction and another chapter on Mother's Day (which is always no-fail comedy fodder). It does indeed seem that this book is going to be as funny as Stephanie's others have been.
Lastly, I just have to vent: though most people think it's been perfect (upper 60's), I think the weather in the Midwest has been perfectly miserable. It stinks. And I'm leaving out what I've really said. One thing I didn't discuss in my "creative passions" is weather. Cloudy is a start, cold and rainy is good but if a snowstorm is predicted, you can also predict a doozey of a storm in my sewing room. If you know of my extreme love of snow, you'd have observed the impressive restraint I've practiced with my attitude lately...but I have my limits! And now that this lame winter weather is curbing what could be a full-blown creative frenzy in the sewing room, things are going to get ugly. I just checked the forecast. Not a flurry in sight for the next 5 days at least. Not even a good old-fashioned arctic blast! I hate flip-flops. I love sweaters! 'Nuff said.
