Once upon a time (one year ago actually) I was really sad about my life. The house was messy, I felt messy myself; I didn't have the time to do anything I wanted, I didn't have time for ME and my stuff. Then, I decided it was time to change that. And so I started with the house, slowly putting it together: decluttering a few things here, organizing some things there. And then I started to breath again. But I still couldn't find the time for me and my stuff, because when I was at home I had to clean it and keep it organized. That's when it hit me like a bomb:
LUNCH HOUR ON WEEKDAYS!!!!!!!!!
I have one hour and a half for lunch from Monday to Friday, and instead of surfing the net I could do something I truly enjoy. So, 3 months ago, I attacked my parents books and found these
They are from The Readers Digest, and each one has 4 stories. I already read 3 of them, but before I read the others, I came accross these
and I had to buy them. I am now reading "Nights in Rodanthe" by Nicholas Sparks. (That's the second book, in black, see?)
Remember my pot holders? After doing them I wanted to crochet some more. Since I have so much white yarn that I bought several years ago (before the twins were even born, I think) to make doilies, I went thru some of my magazines and I found one doilie that I really like. So, I started doing it.
I don't know when, but it will eventually, become this:
That's a lot of crochet don't you think? But I think it is adorable!! I want to put it on our dinning room table, I think it will be beautiful. The kids are always asking to see if it has grown some more, but I think it will take me a few more weeks (or months actually!) to finish it.
Now my cross-stitch it's a whole other story and I'll tell you all about it some other day...
