That there’s an end to Summer soon. I know, I know, I shouldn’t complain. After all, it’s been a fairly mild season so far over all. Which, you know, is good, but it’s still been very warm – too warm at times, something that doesn’t play nice with my fibro. I’m definitely ready for things to cool down, how about you?
It’s not just because the heat gets me (well, it is, by and large, but…). It’s also that I want to work on my blanket again, something that’s gone by the wayside while it’s been too hot to have that much fabric in my lap. I want to make sweaters, too, though granted I have no yarn for it nor am I likely to get any any time soon. Doesn’t mean I don’t still want to work on them, though.
I’ve also been daydreaming about things like fall and Christmas decorations for the house (hush, I know it’s early still, but making things takes time). Not the tiny apartment we’re currently in but the non-existent-but-longed-for-home-of-our-own. I want to be able to make and hang wreaths. Have table runners and place-mats and napkins that match and are decorated according to whichever holiday. Make Christmas decorations for around the house and in the tree.
All things that will happen some day. Have to hold onto that 🙂
For now, I can work on things like my shawl, on which I have made very little progress, mostly because I’ve been in a flare for the brunt of this past week. Still trucking along when I can, though. Think I’ll make it?
I have another project coming up that I’m looking forward to working on. It’s a cross stitch piece for a friend of mine. Promise I’ll share in due course. I still need to finish the two other pieces I have going, too *frowns at self*. Maybe something I’ll get to work on this week, provided these flares ease up.
What is your favorite (either already made, or something on your wish/to do list) craft for your home for the upcoming seasons?
