I had no intention of taking a blogging break, but time got away from me. I have a much more difficult time with getting things done in the evening when the weather changes. I find all I want to do is curl up with a blanket, tea and a movie/book/TV show. Which leads to very productive crafting and blogging as you can tell. If this were a blog about my TV watching, it would have many more frequent updates. But that would be lame, lame, lame! (What does this say about me?)
Alas, I did spend a lovely Saturday afternoon last week at a dear friend’s new house sewing and crafting. It’s got a wood stove and is surrounded by apple trees, and she prepared a delicious brunch for us girls. I worked more on my dress, which now fits me everywhere. I just have to do all of the finishings–hemming and trimming and whatnot–now. I also spent a few good hours with my idea book. I tear out everything I see in magazines that I want to remember for some future project and organize them and keep them in this binder, which I do use several times a year. I have little folders for each holiday that holds all of the ideas for decorating, eating, and general merriment. It has come in handy on many occasion. I keep a stack of ripped pages and try to organize it twice a year, which works pretty well. This used to have “Idea Book” spelled out in beads on the cover, but got ripped to shreds and now says, “I Book.” Still fitting.
