A Little Ray of Sunshine

"You will never find time for anything. If you want the time, you must make it."
~Charles Buxton

Today is the first day in quite a while that the sun is streaming in through the windows. It's quite refreshing, I must say.

As you know, I've been on this knitting kick. For some reason, I'd rather knit than do just about anything else... perhaps it's the cathartic knit and purl stitches, the getting lost in my thoughts, holding something soft, or seeing a new creation bloom before my eyes. Whatever the reason, I've been unable to get much else done. Wait. I take that back. I've simply resorted to cutting back on sleep.

Currently, I'm in the process of making this cute twinkle star washcloth. I find some kind of sincere enjoyment in the yellow and white variegated yarn. It brings the sunshine indoors on these cold winter days, most definitely warming me up.

I hope you find something sunny, cozy, and creative to dig into today.

Ooooh. I love the yellow and white together too. Very cheerful, just like you. The ray of sunshine in the Middle School Hallway!!!Cathy, I hope you know what a kind and generous person. Thanks so much for the beautiful gift. I feel selfish keeping it.

I used to cross stitch. I know what you mean about it being addicting. When I was pregnant with Jack, I was nesting so badly and wanted to make something for him, and I picked up cross stitching which I had learned in 4-H when I was 11. I'll have to show you my fourth and last project I did, 13 1/2 years ago. It was an alphabet that had a different animal with each letter. I got a book with different letter patterns and chose the animal one, then mapped it out on graph paper. The I had it matted and framed by a neighbor. After that, I went from having dirty diapers and screaming children in my hands to homework papers and IEP's to keep my hands busy and have not picked up a needle since!
