I am having a sorry Saturday, and it isn't even 8:00 in the morning. I think most of my week has been just like this. I think the last few weeks have done me in, I am tired and feel wiped out emotionally and physically. And to make matters worse I have a stinking cold that has made my lungs not very happy. Not a horrible cold and flu that so many of you have had, just an annoying one that drains your energy and makes life a bit miserable. This is what happens to me when I run around too much taking care of others, I should know better but it happens every time. So my mojo is gone, finished, ca-put, and said farewell a few days ago. I think I used what little energy I had on my new space, it has been downhill since then.
I don't have anything new to show you. But I do have a few things from a week or two ago.
This is the Lighter Than Air Peasant Top found at My Gramma Said. This is a great blog I found through Pinterest. The designer made this shirt from up-cycled t-shirts. I didn't have a men's t-shirt available, so I hiked off to Target, found the gray one on clearance and there you go. The white one was from Joann's and cost a whopping $3.25. You would think with all the men I have surrounding me an extra shirt would be easy to find.
It was a fun little project and the designer is right, these shirts are lighter than air, I'll wear them a lot this spring and summer.
White is hard to see on a white door I know, but I didn't have the energy to take it outside for a photo shoot.
I also found these little felted bags at Joann's when I was there the other day. I wondered how needle felting would work on a felted item. I learned a lot making this little bag for my friend Cathy. You just need a tiny bit of felt to create the colors, much less that when making a three dimensional object.
Elementary I know, but I have to remind myself I am just learning and exploring. When I look on Pinterest I am in awe of the creations people make out of fiber, such intricate sculptures, oh my!
I made a little bag (not pictured) for my sister Claudia, just for fun. She can use it to put her knitting needles or crochet hooks in, or not use it at all. I always send her stuff I make, sort of like when I was in elementary school and I would bring home a project for her, maybe you never lose that quality even at the age of 48.
I have 5 more rows of my ripple blanket to make it to the finish line. I have to force myself to do it. What was I thinking choosing colors to match my room rather than colors I like to work with? This blanket has been torture from the first stitch. I will post a finished picture soon, as soon as I make myself sit down and finish it.
Hope your Saturday is great.
