Crafting Overload Weekend

I say that like it’s a bad thing, but it really isn’t. 

I had a busy crafting weekend, and I’m going to tell you all about it throughout the week.  Ok, I’ll tell you a little bit. 

On Saturday, I found myself awake at 4am.  I tried to fall back asleep for an hour, but got up round 5am, and went downstairs.  Sleep wasn’t happening.  I popped on the TV to BBCA, hunkered down with my needles and started on a sleeve to a sweater.  I got a lot done that morning.  Then, it was off with Joan to the Kutztown Folk Festival (which if you are in or near Berks County, PA….GO), which I will tell you all about either tomorrow or Tuesday.  Oh, and I picked up a new craft on Saturday, too, also influenced by the festival.

With that being said, exciting stuff in on the horizon.  And to my Canadian neighbors, Happy Canada Day!



I could not fall asleep until about 5am this morning.  I got about four hours of sleep.  Maybe it was all the caffeinated teas, or the massive dose of prednisone (again…grrrr), but I was wide awake in bed.  Perhaps it was from the excitement of the day, too.  I had a great day yesterday.  More on that tomorrow, though.

As I lay in bed, I wondered what I could be doing with the time I was awake.  I could knit.  I could pick spinning back up, or I could start tatting, which my friend Amanda got me interested in, as well as loaning me some starter supplies.  I ended up knitting for an hour.  And then I sleepy. 

I have a lot on my plate!  I am excited and motivated, despite being tired. I will tell you about my awesome day with Joan and Amanda tomorrow, or later today if I have the time.  It was a great time with great friends and it was exactly what I needed in my life at that point.
