There hasn't been a whole lot of making around here lately, just a few rows here and there when I get a chance. I have gathered a bit of a crafty collection on the arm of the couch, so I can catch a nice burst of colour every time I glance over there, and I can pick it up and put it down again without cleaning up properly! I think I will be able to make a few more washers, but then I will be out of colourful cottons, so I might try and source some good coloured cottons for my shop and me! I am also determined to get that big mixed stitch stripey blanket for the CAL finished this coming week, I need to finish it off so I can move onto other things with a clear mind.
It has been pretty busy here, Jesse has had his last day of high school today, and now has a few weeks of studying and his final exams to complete his Year 12 studies (VCE). So there has been quite a bit of celebrating and milestones being passed. Making me feel quite sentimental too! My first baby is almost grown up now and it feels too soon, but it is exciting too and I just love the young man he is growing into, I'm looking forward to the next stage of his life, I'm sure he will be off doing his own thing but we will be cheering from the side lines.
I have also embarked on yet another self improvement plan. Hopefully the last one I will need.
I read this post by Frugal Queen and found it really resonated with me. ( Thanks Froogs! :) )
So a lot of time this week has been spent on exercising. I have to say I am feeling better,
I had forgotten how good it feels to sweat and work my muscles.
( I am feeling sooooo sore though!) :) I had been feeling a bit down and in a rut so this is really helping to lift my mood too, all those endorphins and all that....
I have no excuses now, I just have to get on with it and stick with it until it is just a part of my life.
( I have cut out Diet Coke too, it has been hard, one week down, so far so good! I had a big DC habit!)
Anyway, that's a couple of snippets of my week, it feels like I haven't been reading blogs for a while so I have a bit of catching up to do and see what you guys have been up to as well.
How has your week been?
Getting any crafty action going?
Done any exercise, do you feel better when you do?
