Misc. Monday – Are We Back to Normal Yet?

After working my bunny bum off trying to get the Hygge CAL completed in time for the Farm Fair, I am hoping that things in my life are now back to normal.  I know that the word “normal” is all relative and keeps changing, but can I have my life back now?  That would be great.  Thanks.

I completed the wrap on Saturday just after noon. The lining is done.  So is the cross stitch, overlay crochet, and all the bobbles.  This afternoon I hand it over to the judges and hope they appreciate all the blood (from pricking my finger with a needle), sweat (from the hotter than hell July), and tears (not really, but it was close at times) I put into this project.

Misc. Monday – Getting Close to Crunch Time

It’s getting close to crunch time on my Hygge CAL.  The Farm Fair is one day more than two weeks away.  Yikes!  And though I have finished the first half of the cross stitch, there is so much left to do.  So I must apologize in advance if blog posts are next to nothing for the time being.  I’ll try to make some update posts, but I can’t make any promises.

I literally wore my butt out yesterday trying to get the first half completed.  Not exactly 100% completed since I realized after I rolled her up that I forgot three red stitches in the top right corner.  Oh well.  I’ll do them today.

Misc. Monday – Procrastination is the Name of the Game Today

Today is a great day for procrastination.  It really is.  I’ve been sitting here staring at the screen in front of me.  It’s not all that hot outside, but my metal roof is really starting to bring in the heat.  Every time I have ventured outside this morning I have been surprised at how comfortable the temperatures are.

Another Fiber-filled Weekend Full of Fun

The Family Collaboration
The Family Collaboration I showed off this weekend

Good grief!  Are there enough F’s in that title for you?  🙂  It truly was a fun fiber-filled weekend.  The anxiety I felt most of last week has subsided now that I am taking Monday to recover.  The blog should be back to normal with daily posts during the week.  I had to take a few days off for my own mental health.

The weather (I must be British) was doomy and gloomy, going from hot to cold with almost constant rain followed by humid days that made me melt like chocolate on the sidewalk.  It was a bad week if you wanted to remain cheerful.

WIP Tuesday – A Bit of a Head Scratcher Today

Today’s blog post is a bit of a head scratcher.  Perhaps it’s the heat.  Perhaps it’s the sudden change in temperature from early March to late June.  It must be my brain melting.  That is the only explanation for it.

Deflated Mokona
“You don’t even look like a rabbit, Mokona.” “Oh, shut up.”

Mokona is doing her best impression of a rug this afternoon.

I’m struggling a bit today with finding an ongoing project to highlight for today’s WIP Tuesday so I turned to the Google machine to look for inspiration.  I’ve got good news and I’ve got bad news.

Rambling on a Monday Morning

Fractal Spin as of Monday Morning
This is today’s project so far. Check back later for the end result.

It’s Monday morning and the bun sisters are enjoying fresh hay while I sit at my computer trying to figure out what to write.  It will probably be another rambling post, since I don’t have a set topic for Mondays.

The weather is overcast and somewhat chilly with light blue heading this way.  I don’t think it will amount to more than a dusting if I even see one of those white “things” falling from the sky.  Rumor has it that the temperatures are going to warm up later this week.  Could that imaginary season of spring actually be heading this way?  Nah.  It’s all myth and legends, I tell ya’.

My Life is Like a Lost Spoon

Lost spoon
Lost: One spoon extremely similar to the one pictured (they are siblings).

Recently, I lost one of my spoons.  To anyone else it’s just a lost spoon.  I was walking from the kitchen to the living room and it fell off the plate I was carrying.  I heard it make a soft “thud” as it fell onto the carpet.  Of course, I cursed as I continued to my computer desk.  It’s hard to eat runny coleslaw with your fingers.  At that particular moment I assumed that I could retrieve the errant spoon on my way back to the kitchen to get its replacement.  No such luck…

Concentration and Teaching the Basics

Have you ever tried to concentrate with two rambunctious bunnies causing trouble and making a racket?  It’s not easy.  One is bounding all over the living room like a drunken ping pong ball while the other is nibbling away at one of the plastic tunnels even though she knows she shouldn’t.  If they weren’t so darn cute, it would be rabbit stew for dinner.  (Just kidding!)
