Keeping Busy

Busy.busy.busy...........
You know how it is...
Busy doing things that you'd love to blog about, but realizing that if you spend all your time blogging, then you don't have time to do the things that you want to blog about...............
Here's what I've been up to lately:

Making New Friends
This is my very own Lollie Doll made by my dear friend Marilyn.
I love my little Lollie Doll.
She is hanging next to some handspun yarn, which brings me to my next item of busyness...
SPINNING

I went to visit my new friend and I got to try out her  spinning wheel and loved it and now I have one too, so I'm learning how to spin...
and I'm working in the gardens...
Harvesting tomatoes and lots of other vegetables.
I even made a couple of lanterns for the garden...
Got rid of lots of lillies and replaced them with herbs and old sewing machine parts.
Like this antique treadle peddle...
and this...
and this.

There's been some getting rid of things and organizing all the things I'm keeping.
Like my polka dots...

and hands and things.

There's been no time for felting.

But it's on my list of must do things along with all the should do things and and absolutely have to things.
There just aren't enough hours in a day or weeks in a month to finish all the undone things, but trying keeps me busy.

See you soon.

  1. Looove your sewing machine parts in the garden, and your garden haul! Looks yummy...tomato sandwiches! If anyone could spin I am sure it is you, so I am super excited to see what you will make!
    The polka dots are to die for!
    Happy summer days to you.
    Big hugs!

  2. Wonderful post Miz Karen Ann. The spinning looks so inviting, I know you will create wonderful fibers to work with. I always love seeing photos of your yard and home, and the tomatoes are so pretty.
    Have a fun day!
    Love

  3. Yes ... you summed it up perfectly and that's how I've been feeling too. Busy doing things that you'd love to blog about, but realizing that if you spend all your time blogging, then you don't have time to do the things that you want to blog about...............

    Lovely post. I'm realising how wonderful it is to have life so full of things you want to do that instead of being stressful it should be enjoyed and savoured. Doing whatever makes us happy is what it's all about. Have a lovely weekend Karen Ann
