Mondays. Why do people hate Mondays?

It’s Monday so rise and shine! Carpe diem and all that. Eat cake and celebrate because you’re ere and alive. Seriously, the alternative is really a bummer. So consider that the next time you begin complaining loudly about Mondays. The start of a new week comes with the opportunity to begin anew. Do what you want to, change an old habit you don’t like, meet new people,  or get closer to those you do know. You make it what you want it to be. Just like life.

It has to start somewhere

The crafting. I don’t remember when it started, but I know I’ve always been compelled to make things.  Sewing, painting, building, embroidery, cross stitch,costumes, crocheting, beading, jewelry, art, stuff, pretty things. I do it all and many times I’m working on several projects at once along with gardening and cooking.

Here’s a pic of one of my many crafts I have designed and made.

Felted wool lap throw

This is made from 100% felted wool that I up-cycled from sweaters. I acquire the sweaters from garage sales and thrift stores. Each sweater will make 6-8 squares about 7″ square. These are then sewn together into long strips and then the strips are sewn together. The backing is a blue plaid cotton and the binding is a soft cotton. No batting is used because the wool is so warm.

I’m already working on another one with different colors which I will post as a tutorial soon.
