What is your favorite part of the day? I'm not much of a morning person, but I have found that the older I get, the earlier I wake up. What is that about? I've always been a night owl, staying up to punch or hook until midnight or better, but lately I can't keep my eyes open past 10:00. I tell you this because night time, right after dinner is my favorite time of day. There's nothing better than finishing dinner, cleaning the kitchen and having a full night of what I call "chair time". I love my chair time. I love the anticipation of starting a new project, or continuing or finishing a project. My husband often says "why are you doing that? You're still working!" There could be nothing further from the truth. Chair time and my punch needle or hook is my decompression. I can keep my hands busy while my brain rests.
I did put the finishing touches on this cute pattern for me to actually hang in my own home. It is called "tombstone sunflower" and is a Spruce Ridge Studio adaptation of a Lori Brechlin design. I love it!
And though I post a LOT on Facebook and have shown this many times before I thought I'd share my Antique Coverlet #2 with you here on the blog in case you are not a facebooker. Mom refused to hook this one as she felt there was too much math in it, (not really), so I had to do it. It is probably the most satisfying design I've ever done from inception to completion. I'm very proud of it!
So, that's what I've been doing to keep my hands busy. What's your favorite time of day and what are you working on?
Until next time.....
