Mental health day
Sometimes things just get a little nutty in my life, and I have to take a break and get myself put back together. Work is taking some unusual turns, and I don't do change very well! Because I had some unscheduled vacation, I took yesterday off. My cousin Audrey calls it a mental health day, and I totally agree.
By 8:30 a.m. she emailed me to ask if I was in my pj's drinking coffee and surfing the web. My reply? Pretty much! And because I don't shift gears quickly, I was spending my mental health day cleaning and grocery shopping. After dinner was put into the crockpot, I headed to the sewing room to work on my Farmer's Wife blocks. Laurie Aaron Hird, the author, gave me a link for free template downloads; and you can find it here.
This morning I've found tons of great craft and sewing ideas. My favorite is Stina's free Valentine downloads, so I've printed them off. I don't need another project, but I haven't done anything for Valentine's day. Maybe later today I'll trace these off.
And then there's this idea from Cluck Cluck Sew. I see these scarves are discounted now at gap.com, but I would love to make my own.
And it's never too early to think about something fun for Christmas. If you scroll down the page, you'll see this very cute spool advent calendar at galloping pony.
We aren't getting the snow storm that is all over the news. My snowmobiler and our sons in law are salivating over the snow that is pounding areas just south of us. They will still ride tonight. I'll be spending quality time with my needle :D
