Monday already? If someone sees my weekend wandering around, please could they send it back to me, I think it got lost somewhere. I spent it painting walls, ceiling and woodwork, with a little lying down in between in the hopes that my cold will finally die. No such luck, sadly, but the living room is looking vastly improved and our washing machine is no longer in the middle of the kitchen floor.
It’s always the little things, isn’t it?
Other than that, I spent a lot of time playing with my yarn – I can’t be the only one who gets as much pleasure from sorting their stash as they do from making things with it, can I?
Aren’t they pretty?
After much brain-storming, magazine-sorting and stash-raiding, I finally managed to write down a list of things I want to make. Actually, the list is of things I want to have made, which isn’t quite the same thing. Again, I swear that I get as much pleasure from sorting through patterns and plotting as I do from actually making things. Is that weird?
So I now have lists of quilts, clothes, shawls, crochet items and other things that I want to make, as well as ones I want to design, and that’s even before I finish going through my magazine stash. On top of my list of things to do in the flat, chores that need doing and a Christmas shopping list, I’m starting to think that I need a list of lists!
And because I clearly don’t have enough to do with my time, I’ve decided to join in NaBloPoMo. Writing a novel in a month would be beyond me, but blogging every day? I can do that. Anyone care to join me? There’s a link in my sidebar with more details.
But for now, it’s time for more tea and let Monday commence! How’s everyone else’s week looking? Are you winding down from half term or winding up for Christmas yet?
