Funky times

*sigh* Does anyone else live in a funk at the moment? For example I've got projects on the go but with no immediate desire to finish what I've started it looks suspiciously like I've done nothing! In reality I'm about to quilt a single bed quilt for daughter #2, I've made a fabric wallet/mobile phone holder/key wristlet for Mother's Day, then made a prototype for another version that I've fallen in love with :) as well as hemming an already short skirt to an even greater(or shorter??) shortness. So when my friends say "what have you been up to lately" I mentally catalogue my jobs and then pipe up "oh nothing much" - after all, there's nothing I can show off - I'm either still quilting it or have given the gifts away. So to funk or not to funk? that is the question :)

To Knit/Sew/Crochet or *Buy* (my favourite)

Brrr it's getting cold these mornings & evenings and I'm perusing the big wide web looking for a easy to knit/or very easy to crochet "poncho" patterns. Has anyone got a favourite that they recycle year to year? Of course I would like it to have magical powers and make me look 10x slimmer (taller too would be nice) !! I'll keep looking - but if anyone can help I would love to hear from you.

April Fool's

"Pinch, Punch, 1st day of the month" is what I woke up to this morning. So to be fair I ran around the house applying payback to anyone slower than myself. To start the day off differently puts a slant on how your day will continue & mine got better and better. My car was finished earlier than expected, I found some gorgeous Japanese fabric for a table runner, I got home & put the dishwasher and washing machine on - thereby getting an early start on the weekend PLUS it turns out I won an on-line pattern competition for a dress! that my teenager daughter actually wants me to make for her to wear!! So today who was the Fool? Not me - I had a great day :)
