Maybe I should start calling this Stitching Sunday?
This week I didn’t get that crafty. I worked on a Christmas present for my In-laws > They want a duplicate of my Lavender Fields Blanket. I have several rows done but I am stuck until I go to Joann’s and get some more of the pewter and white skeins. I love it when someone likes something I made so much that they want one for themselves.
Instead of being crafty I spent the week cleaning my bedroom out and painting it because we bought some new furniture. I am so excited about it I can’t stand myself. The couch, chair and ottoman are all new. They actually match my cat Dorian. He was all curled up on it the other day and I sat on him because he blended in so well. The bed we upgraded to a king size. I got one of the mattresses that you can jump up and down on it won’t knock the wine glass over. I love it – it is like sleeping on a giant marshmallow.
Side note: I know that is a store bought duvet on my bed. I have a quilt kit I bought on Craftsy during one of the sales. I will get on that after I get done with Camp NaNoWriMo and get the first book out to my editor. Everyone keep your fingers crossed I get it done in time for her on August 10. I hit 46k words this week and I am shooting for 60-70K total. Almost there.
I have a new podcast for you. I know there are those of you out there who also have it in your heart to write some kind of book. The podcast is Ann Kroeker, Writing Coach. I haven’t even counted how many episodes I listened to while I was painting. I really think that if you blog, write anything you ever plan to publish then you should give her show a listen. She doesn’t focus on one type of writing I think she would be helpful to everyone.
