Funny Ha Ha!

Now that I'm a "crocheter", I feel like I can share this with you...I "borrowed" this from the Bits&Bobbins blog a while back...love it... and isn't she wonderful?

In case you can't read it...it says, " Enid, for the love of God, put that crochet hook DOWN!".

I think I've decided to take a break for a while on all the Swap thingys. I have loved doing the knitting swap partner and cd swap, but I will maybe do that once a year or something. It's taking away from my other things in life, cause when I do something I go all out and put way too much into it...it starts to take over.

With The Girlie Show as top priority, besides my husband, dog, and work going on, I'm learning to focus a little bit better on committing to only a few things and not saying yes to everything which tends to make me overextend myself. It feels good not to have so much on my plate...as if all those things aren't committment enough. This year I've decided to: give up chairing an art event, donating art to fundraisers, having a booth at events and volunteering anywhere. I've given a lot of energy and time over the years...now it's time to focus on me. It takes a lot of effort being me you know? It's exhausting.

I need to get focused and get back to work on my knitting projects. I forgot to mention that I had finished my One Skein Wonder, but need to take photos to proove it how cute it turned out. That's coming soon. It felt so good to finish that.

Things I want to work on this fall (maybe this will actually make me do these things if I tell the world): Painting the dining room and hanging our new light fixtures, finish painting the guest bedroom, have a garage sale, start my little top- secret business, do landscaping on the house, work on knitting projects, spend more time with my little family, work on my friendships and just take it easy on myself. There is much much more I could have on this list, but that's too much work to write it all down here. I am a list person, so don't think this isn't written down somewhere else. This should get me started for sure and maybe motivate me a little.
