A ride on the crazy train
My son has started the baseball season for his high school team, so there are lots of practices, games and washing of uniforms (you know, in the broken washing machine). He is also senior class treasurer, and in Leadership, and because they are heading towards graduation, there are a million events, meetings, and frequent demonstrations of my mad skillz with a checkbook. I am really looking forward to Spring break. Also a few weeks back I was put on some high blood pressure medication that made me sick as a dog, so I kicked them (the pills, not the dogs) to the curb and put my estrogen patch back on and everything evened out and calmed down. Good. Calm is good. I need more calm, so hold the caffeine and pass the yoga, the crochet hook, and hormone replacement therapy.
You still with me?
I've been wanting to make a white cotton blanket for a while now, so I started one out of Hobby Lobby I Love this Cotton in a blanket stitch. I'm really surprised at how soft this yarn is! So far 3 balls down, 8 to go. It works up pretty quickly. Also very soothing. Same stitch over and over, no ends to weave in, except to change to a new ball. Mindless. Meditative. Calm. No crazy in sight.
I also made a Jelly Roll Race quilt, just to try it out (fun!) and I'm quilting it now. More on this later.
Despite all the above, this weekend is promising to be a good one. Hope yours is too!
