Go here to find your free copy of these Owl Mittens. I think these would be a "hoot" to wear to a party during fall or any time of the year really, they are that cute!
Ok, well, now we need to chat. I hope what I am about to say does not hurt anyone's feelings. Please just take it in stride as it was intended....ok. Here goes.
I think there is a really good possibility that I might be insane. Why? Did someone just ask why? (I heard the rest of you laughing and agreeing with me by the way!).
Well, you see, it's like this...I am torn in a zillion pieces. Sometimes I want to Cross Stitch, Crochet or Knit, and usually never do I want to do any of these when I am suppose to be doing them. It's like I have this huge rebel complex that resists being told what to do...even if I am the one doing the telling. Thus the insane part.
Am I the only one who is torn like this? I mean seriously....I am just some old chick with a craft habit, why do I fret so much over these things?
Does the sun not come up tomorrow because I don't continue to do something I was "suppose to do" Does the wind refuse to blow because I have taken up one craft over another for that day, week...month? Does any of this make any sense?
I tell myself all the time that I am an adult (hey, stop that laughing) and that I can do what ever I want...but deep down, way down I am always telling myself, "You'd better do this or that will happen." or "No will ever read your blog again because you are boring and crazy and can't stick to one thing." Ok, I know I am not boring, crazy people are never boring...but you do have to admit I am rather out of the norm and I rarely can stick with one thing.....hmmm did I just talk you into believe I am raving mad?
To all my sweet Cross Stitching Buds.....I must, with a red face and most humble heart, back out of our SAL for the Barbara Ana design. My heart just is not in it. I started working on the tree, and did a leaf and the next thing I knew I was digging through my stash of yarn hunting down something to start a knitted shawl. I feel bad for letting you all down...but at the moment I have as much desire to cross stitch anything as I do to put my face into a pot of scolding water.....my heart just is not in it, I am sorry.
I am not saying that I won't ever cross stitch again, you all know that I flutter from one thing to the next like a butterfly with no sense of direction...so there is a really good chance I'll be back at it again...but not for now...not right now....ok, I'll shut up now, I am starting to bore myself!
For the moment my heart is wrapped up in knitting a shawl (yeah, the wrapped up was pun intended). :) But don't give up on me if you don't care about knitting....I will always crochet....it's my "drug of choice" I guess you could say (ok, I've been watching way too much TV, can you tell!).
So until the sun rises again my dear friends, I bid you a wonderful day and fingers crossed that I can get a snap of the red shawl I am working on.
****update.....just wanted to say, to prove that insanity has it's full grasp around me, I picked up the cross stitching again....(after having to frog 20 rows of the knitted shawl) and now all of a sudden it's starting to grow on me again...well, that and I got a call from Mo....more about that later!****
