I had to laugh this morning when I saw Margene, Carole and Terry's posts on weekending, because I knew my post was going to be another" what did I do this weekend" post, as I have not posted since last Monday...LOL. I think I may make this my weekly Monday post. :-)
One of the nice things about working one job is the little extra free time that I now have, especially since I am not at the computer nearly as much. Weekends have become more about relaxing and doing the things that I like to do, which is so nice!
I have been using some of that time to get reacquainted with my lonely sewing machines and I am thoroughly enjoying it.
I have to admit that once something gets stuck in my head, I obsess about it and coming up with a bigger bag is what is stuck in there now. I'm not quite there yet, but pretty darn close.:-)
Of course the one downside to coming up with something means that some fabric is getting wasted and that does make me a wee bit crazy, but then I justify it to myself by saying I can just cut it up and use it again......at least that sounds good right? LOL.
I did whip up a few of my smaller sock bags and will be working on more all week with a shop update on Friday. :-)
There was also time for knitting. I am currently working on a shawl designed by Rose Beck called "And So Are You" . This pattern is part of a 5 pattern e-book and each pattern is so lovely....go take a peek.
I'm hoping to have this finished...maybe...next weekend. :-)
Of course with bag obsession comes fabric fever...and Quilted Threads is one of my favorite quilt shops.
Having the extra time to spend with friends and doing things that I enjoy instead of working 7 days a week has made my life a much happier place to be.
I hope you had a fun weekend too!
