Off...

I'm feeling "OFF" lately. I don't know if it's the heat and change of season or just general restlessness, but lately I'm feeling just "OFF." June has been a month filled with very little knitting or crafting at all. I am going to be sewing this weekend for Anna & Toby, but that's out of need more than inspiriation so...

I don't know, maybe just getting in front of the sewing machine and working will help me push through the funk I'm in. We'll see.

I did pick up a book at Barnes & Noble last night. Paid full price for it can you believe it? It's really lots of fun. I like the information in it more than the projects, which are really cute.



If you sew at all - ESPECIALLY if you're a beginner (Stephanie) you should get this book. It's fun and inspired. It's written how I work - knowing what to do and then saying "What if?" or "So what!" to get the results you want.

Here's to a less "FUNK" filled weekend!

Oh guys please keep Stacie in your thoughts and prayers as she's having a rough go right now!

I'll keep you posted!

Sometimes a change of venue (or craft in this case) is needed. don't worry about the crafting. Start reading a book or just veg in front of the tv.. It will come back

Sometimes I need to walk away from my needles and smell the roses. It doesn't take long for something random to inspire me if I just take the time to relax and observe.

Thanks for the thumbs up on the book. I was thinking about buying it for my daughter (a beginner) and you clinched it.

BTW, you can see her first FO, which she gifted me for Mother's Day, here.

That looks like a cute book--I will have to check it out the next time I make it to a bookstore. Hopefully, you'll find some inspiration in it!

I've got mine on order from Amazon too. I hate waiting for it and finding out other already have it. I want mine now !!!!
Glad to hear it's a great book and good for beginners. Although I am not a beginner I like quick and easy projects.
