It is back to school time when families are back on schedule, vacations are memories and reorganization is on the top of my “To-Do” list. I don’t know if it is just me but the biggest problem I have is organizing my “to-do” list. After sitting and staring out the window, I remind myself that the easiest way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time. First bite: writing a list of everything I would like to accomplish today only to realize that just getting an organized list would be an acomplishment! First I need to organize my hobbies.
Knitting is a hobby I have enjoyed for many years. I usually have at least one project to work on , this time it is scarves and collars. I also have a few Shrug patterns I would like to try. One of my favorite web sites for yarn is ArtFibers because their yarns are on cones which eliminates the need for many knots to join several skeins.
Painting on fabric with Stewart Gill paints which allow layering without the textile becoming stiff. This line of paints has so many choices of texture and color it is difficult to make any decisions!
Talk about a hobby with many choices, have you seen a Fire Mountain Gem catalogue lately?
So many coices, so little time! Just when I find something I just HAVE to HAVE I turn the page and see more. Well this should keep me busy for the winter!
OK, back to my “To-Do” list and time for me to organize my closet and put aside things I haven’t worn for a year or more. Time to make room for new ideas and new creations! Or maybe I should just take a nap?
What did you do for your summer vacation?
