That lovely fall air.
I am just loving all the fall splendor here in Nebraska. I can’t get over all the colors and beauty I see every day. I feel like a little kid getting so excited to go for a drive out of the city to see field after rolling corn field all golden and beautiful. As we head back to the city it is reds, oranges, bright yellows, acorns, pinecones, and the like everywhere. Up in the trees, flying in the air, and laying on the ground. I love it.
I don’t know if it is the change of season or what, but this last weekend I found myself cutting my fabric scraps into 2″, 3.5″, and 6″ lengths, looking up how to reupholster a chair on YouTube, and digging into the closet under the stairs looking for the box of yarn I have saved for christmas stockings. All on the same day!
I couldn’t believe it. I actually wanted to do something crafty.
By evening, my mind was going every which way and so I regrouped and decided on one project for now. After all, this sudden burst of creative energy could leave just as fast as it came. I decided to abandon the idea of matching knit stocking (it is so much faster to just sew them, and easier on my wrists too) and to use the yarn for another christmas decor project. I’ll let you more about it if anything actually comes of it. For now I will take a deep breath and calmly let this area of my life enter my mind and hands again.
I know it is late but I’ll have a Halloween post up later this week. I just can’t pass up the chance to show you our little frog this year.
