New Projects

Hello Wednesday...  Thank you friends for all of your comments on my last post.  I will try to be a little more diligent in posting.  I'm trying very hard to fight this exhaustion, weight gain, and 0 motivation I have been experiencing.  I went to the doctor today and he drew some blood and I'm hoping this will tell us something.  If not, well, I guess I will look into something else. LOL

I have been working on my new secret project.  I don't know about any of you but when I try something new I always think my project is going to turn out exactly like the perfect ones I see on the web.  I never give it a thought that they have probably been doing it for years and that is why they are doing the tutorial.  They always make it look so simple.  Maybe I'm just to hard on myself.  But like I have told you from the beginning I will always share with you my failures as well as my successes.  Only this one I'm going to wait a bit longer until I get a little further.  I didn't scrap it...yet.  LOL.  No I am learning as I go along which is what it is all about.  I am not perfect and I sure as heck am not good at everything I do.  So, we will see how this goes as I get further along.  I will say this though... I am really enjoying doing it.  It is a fairly mindless craft that your mind can wonder while you work.  Is the suspense killing you yet? lol

Some of you may not know that I love buying crafting items. I swear I could have a craft store in my creative space with all the stuff I have.   I don't care what they are Styrofoam balls, fabric ( yes a fabriholic if you will), trims, needles, do dads, anything I can get my hands on at the Goodwill and now my newest these...

Breadboards.  I did buy these from a very good friend Sara Cocarus of Salmon Falls Prims.  I know what you are thinking... who the heck needs all of those?  Me of course.  LOL.  Can you not see these painted with prim colors and hanging or in a cabinet?  You can never have to many to decorate with. BUT.... these beauties will be used for future projects.  I'm talking attaching my cross stitch samplers and punchneedle projects to them.  Like the guy below...  Don't forget this pattern is for sale on our website.
Like I said before I need to find new and different ways to finish my projects than pillow tucks.  I have way to many of those as it is.  Who knows maybe I will just paint a few and sell them too.  Either way I can't wait to finish some new things to try them out.
Well, it's off to the frozen tundra... Oh I mean my craft space in the basement.  Brrrrrr... the temp down there has been so cold due to the cold snap outside we have been having.  I can only stay down there for a little while then come back upstairs and warm up. LOL.  It tends to make you work a little faster though so your hands don't go numb.  Have a great day!

Enjoyed reading your blog today, allot caught my interest as to how similar we both are. I will be interested to see how your outcome from your doctor’s appointment turns out, I went thru the same thing with all the tests coming back with nothing wrong…yet why am I so stinking tired all the time and lacking in motivation???? I had to laugh at your statement about going down to the Frozen Tundra, that’s a good one, and if you don’t mind, I think I will borrow that from you as it really does belong to us Wisconsinites! I usually call mine the dungeon, but I do like frozen tundra so much better-Go Packers!!! My lovely sewing space in the basement is just starting to take on the cold, thank goodness I do have a gas fireplace to warm me up! Now only to get my second wind and finish something!~
