Well, I tried to come up with an inspirational post. Something to wow you with, but honestly I've got nothing. That's not really true. I have lots of ideas:
I could tell you about my 10 favorite yarny blogs,
or share my banana bread recipe (I already took the pictures!).
I could tell you about the book group I'm running this year.
If I spent the time taking pictures I could show you the awesome stitch markers John and I have been making.
Then there are the lace ornaments I want to make for Christmas.
And the great gift idea I have for my mother-in-law.
Plus I have an apron that I want to embellish with granny squares, but haven't.
And of course I have WIPS. Plenty of those.
Unfortunately, I don't want to do any of those things.
You see, I'm very close to finishing Juliana and Eleanor. And I have just a bit more work to complete the pansy project so I can write the next installment of the Granny Square Project.
And when I get this close to the end I start thinking about the beginning - as in what will I be beginning next?? I have LOTS of yarn that I want to make things with.
I'm sure that there are plenty of you out there who know where I'm coming from. I call it my crochet ADD and let it go at that! I know that I will never have just one project happening at a time. And I know that when the end is near I have to buckle down and just get it done - otherwise all I do is increase my WIP stash. And it does feel so good to actually put those finishing stitches on.
So for this moment I'll just indulge myself with a little fantasy crochet and call it "planning". Planning is good right??
In addition to my fiber offerings, I like to participate in Five Minute Friday over at Lisa-Jo Baker's place. It's writing in the raw and if you've never done it, why don't you give it a try? It's really easy - you just:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat on this week's prompt with no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking - then post it just as it is!
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
Here's what happened when I spent five minutes writing on the prompt "Focus"
It is that time of the morning, before the birds are even awake.
The moon still shines huge in the sky and the grass is wet with dew.
It is the time when I am so completely alone that even with my eyes closed
I see the day for what it is. For what it has the potential to be.
I am the most perceptive and free in the deep dark - before dawn is even a thought.
I know that the day is waiting. With all kinds of opportunity and adventure.
But in my quiet place, my peaceful place, it is me and my creator.
Where I give thanks for so many blessings.
Ask for strength to do my best this day.
Ask for wisdom in my words and for the chance to be a blessing to someone else.
I close my eyes
on the glory that will come with dawn.
That does it for me today my friends,
Thanks for much for stopping by and spending a bit of your day with me.
Until next time,
Be blessed and stitch & read with love!
