Coming out of the funk

I hope the "funk" is about over. Ray and I attribute it to too much travel and not enough rest. I have been unfocused and tired and until last night  haven't even ventured down the hall to my sewing room. After a couple of days of aches and pains and headaches I am finally feeling human again.

The most fun I have had is playing with my sweet puppies, who both turn one year old this month. Boo turned one on the 5th and Little Girl will on the 23rd.
Can this be comfortable? Her bum on his shoulder and her shoulder holding all her weight, which is a LOT!

While travelling I bought a beading magazine. Do not ask me why, because I don't know. Something sparkly caught my eye I guess. So when I got home I pulled out my beads from when the kids were young and doing arts and crafts. I had forgotten how much I liked playing with beads. I have made a few bracelets and a ring which looks goofy and is too big, but it was fun. I also discovered that going to a bead store is just as dangerous as going to the quilt shop. The purchase is the same $ amount but you come out with a tiny bag you can slip into your purse.
This one needs help

Lots of fun to make

first in a long time, FUN
needs help!

Ray is off on another trip this week so I went into the sewing room and sat and stared for a long time. I finally said to myself. "Self you have to just do it" so I did. I grabbed some strips and made a couple of log cabin blocks. Nothing fancy, nothing hard, just dipping my toes; getting reacquainted. Feeling my way around. It felt good. The blocks came out square and the correct size which is always a good thing.

Maybe I will make a few more today, since these turned out so nice. But first my youngest want to go grab a pizza, YUM!

Glad to hear you're getting back in the swing of things. It took me over a month to really get back to my routine....of course I was gone for four months.

Love the bracelets!
