Not Much Going On Here...

... There is at least some sewing going on... but this is all I can share for now...
 
Birdhouse Row progress has stalled, because I've been spending some evenings reading.

I'm a bit aimless at the moment; I don't really even know what I'm going to work on this week... perhaps I should re-visit a WISP?... go through a tub & do some sorting/purging of its content?
Neither task would be difficult & probably result in me feeling quite virtuous...

My girls both start their 3rd year of uni this week, & while they've enjoyed their long summer break, they're both keen to get back into something of a routine... I must say that when everyone else in the house is in their routine, it helps me greatly; because I'm the Domestic Engineer whose routine is formulated after I know everyone else's routine, so if they're not in routine, neither am I!
(Yes I'm stopping now!)

Before I get any more silly, I'll wish you a wonderful week & get to that tub of crafty stuff...
after I put on a wash load.

Yes, sometimes it can be like that. Not knowing what to start or finish! LOL! I know the feeling.

My mojo has taken an extra long break for some reason. I don't know where it's visiting but I wish it would come back soon.
I'm thinking it doesn't like the hot weather and doesn't want to come back and sit under the light (which adds to the heat) when stitching.
Hopefully soon it will return.

Good luck with project searching and prioritising, I hope you come up with something. That peek looks interesting and your crosstitch looks good. I was an avid reader especially as I don't sleep much . However, I have only read 2 books so far this year, instead or 6 to 9. I find myself on this damn tablet more! Must do what you do and read instead.

Ah routine, nice to have a break from it, but it definitely keeps the world going. Always hard to choose between reading and sewing, I guess that's why so many stitche like audio books.

Hmmm - now you've got me in the mood to dive into my projects bags and pull something out that needs to be started. I've been working on my grandson's Christmas stocking - the HUGE one - and must take a break……off I go!

I know that feeling too - hopefully for you routines will return and so will your mojo. I love the cross stitch project :-)

I look forward to seeing more of that quilt - beautiful points! The birdhouse row looks interesting too.

Hello Anthea,

Good luck with your sewing, what have you been reading? I could read all day if it was possible for me.
The cross stitch is looking good.

Happy days.
Bev.

I know that feeling! Love your birdhouse row-- must look out for it-- have not seen it in my travels as yet.

Lin said...

If in doubt - start something new! Hope you your routine back but it is good to have a break. I love indulging myself with a good book but it is usually only when I'm on holiday or unwell. xx

That aimless feeling is so annoying! Feeling virtuous is a spur on sometimes :) Perhaps being back in your/someone else's routine will help you ground ;) It's such a pain that we can't stitch and read at the same time :)

Anthea you always have something going on and whatever it is will be lovely....but for now enjoy your reading.:)

Mmmmm I think it is the same here. I have plenty to work on but am usually tired or running after everyone else to be bothered actually doing it. Mind you we have had huge upheaval here with the flooring being done which also lead to plumbers and a paintbrush in my hands yet again lol. I did sew some curtains today and have just popped them up. I am looking forward to the cooler days to get that mojo happening.

That sneak peak looks great. Amen to the routine thing! Wait - what do you mean put on a wash load? When my older kids are at uni I had assumed they would be doing the washing for me!! Oh no!!!
