This past week was a good one. I felt more balanced, the grieving comes and goes but not as often or as deep....acceptance is taking it's place. I realized I do like a balance in my days...a little cleaning, organizing, decorating, cooking, baking, maintaining, gardening and of course, creating. I didn't get a lot of 'crafting' done but what I did I enjoyed and that's the main point.
I tried making those little fabric pumpkins but mine turned out REALLY tiny! I have 2 more to make and then I think I'll go big or go home! LOL!
I worked on it while watching the Iowa Hawkeyes play Penn State at Iowa in Iowa City last night.....it was almost like being home...........I didn't make it to the end though .....halftime and I was ready for bed! LOL!
Today is Santa Sunday and I've already started working on it..............I've got my cross stitch mojo back and getting back in the rhythm............
This is a King Arthur Flour recipe
Please stop by and see all the other fantastic projects that other YOP'ers are working on.
P.S. I've been meaning to update you on my SIL.....he is still in the hospital but out of IC and he is better but the foot is probably not going to be used for a long time if ever. He is waiting to get a spot at a rehab center as he is still on an IV. There has been no decision as to keeping or removing the foot but he will not be able to work as his job entailed being on his feet and the bones in that one foot are practically non-existent any more. I doubt if he will ever work again. Please keep him and his family in your prayers. I wish I could sell this house yesterday and move back so I could help them out. I'm working towards it.
