I seem to be having a bout of the January blues. Every so often events occur that create the feeling that nothing seems all that interesting . . . days are kinda blah . . . really don't care about too much of anything . . . "whatever" happens, happens outlook on life. That's the way my Monday to Friday work week has become and it has been trying to overlap into my evenings and weekends also.
So . . . I'm taking charge! Don't get me wrong - I still feel "whatever" but I still recognize that by keeping busy, and YES!, also starting a new project that just happens to be bright and cheerful will do me more good than just letting the feelings take over.
I also know that starting another project, no matter how colorful and cheerful, may add to the feeling of being completely overwhelmed with all of the ongoing projects that are cluttering up my workspace, but . . . at least I'm doing SOMETHING! And in my book that is better than doing nothing.
And then I grabbed this UFO from 2007 from the pile and even started calculating a fairly complex border idea so that it can someday be completed. I even got the applique pieces traced out on freezer paper and will hopefully get to the rest sometime this week. Maybe sometime between all the embroidery I have going on and quilting that wonderful piece of sunshine at the top of my post.
Wishing you a sunny, bright week,
'til next time,
