Sometime In October

It's not that I have nothing to say. In fact, all kinds of  topic ideas are jumping around in my head. And it's not that I have nothing to show. In fact, I have several projects ready to photograph, post, and talk about. BUT...

... what I seem to lack is the energy to actually sit down, organize text and pictures, and put it all together. In my head, it's doable. In reality, by the end of the day I just don't have what it takes. It feels like the last few weeks have been hair straight back trying to get the suite ready to rent and the house inhabitable and this week, we're looking after our two grandsons so it'll be all about the boys and not much more.

I have found bits and pieces of inspiration like the pieces shown here and I've been thinking about my coaching assignment of combining a simple neckline on a garment with a statement necklace - both made by me - however, that's as far as it has gotten AND... much to my annoyance...

... my daughter's purse is no further along that the last time we talked. The pieces are ready to sew together. The lining is complete. The straps need studding and the buckles buckling and it's sitting on work island. I really want to finish it next and I don't know if that'll happen. I'll have to see how things go after this next week of grandson-sitting.

Speaking realistically - it's most likely to be sometime in October before I get back to a regular routine so if there are postings before then, consider them a bonus and if there are none, I am coming back.

Talk soon - Myrna

Grateful - several major projects are nearing the end


  1. Your posts are a gift to us, not an obligation. I hope things go smoothly for you with the little boys and indeed everything.


  2. I love those triangular earings. It seems hard sometimes to work up the enthusiasm to actually do things. I want to , i need to but.....

  3. No worries about not posting. Enjoy your grandsons as they are little for a very short time! Karen

  4. I will be looking forward to your return to posting. In the meantime, enjoy the hiatus and have a wonderful time with your grandsons!


Thanks for commenting. I appreciate the feedback and the creative conversation.
