I find myself asking that question each morning. Everyday seems a lot like the day before, and the day before, on and on. Sigh. How are you all dealing with the sameness?
When it is nice outside, we try to get outside for walks or a bit of yardwork. We are really enjoying all the spring blooming that’s happening. This forsythia makes me smile every morning when I see it.
Inside we keep ourselves busy with chores, small projects and coming up with some twists on dinner to try to change things up a bit. How many ways are there to make chicken? Apparently, quite a few. Did a bit of decorating for Easter.
The sewing room has been getting a bit of use too. Not everyday. I must admit it is sometimes difficult to get my motivation in gear. But I have gotten some things done.
There is a thing going on about putting teddy bears in your windows or somewhere prominent for kids to see when they are out taking a walk with their parents. It’s like they are going on a Bear Hunt. So, I put one of my teddy bears in an upstairs window waving to any little hunters that may be passing by.
And I made a little teddy bear on my embroidery machine to sit in my kitchen window.
I am working on some bunnies for Easter baskets. The hardest part is getting the ears pinned onto the hoop in just the right place. The stitching only takes about 3-5 minutes. Since I couldn’t get out to do shopping for bunnies, I just went with bunnies I had left from last year’s Easter orders. Luckily I had enough for all 6 grandkids.
This one was made for the newest addition. Shhhh! Don’t tell Aviendha she is getting a yellow bunny for her first Easter.
There have also been some masks being made. Some with ties and some with elastic. I have a bunch more cut now and I’ll get to sewing on them over the next couple of days .
At night I have been making progress on the hand sewn hexis. I’ve got 24 done, with 18 more waiting to be stitched.
I work on them while watching tv at night. I got a few more done last night while watching two really great Country music shows. I enjoyed that night of music so much.
That’s what I’ve been up to the last couple weeks. What have you been doing during this time of quarantine, sheltering in place, staying home… whatever the words are that you want to use to describe it?
I hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Take care. Stay home. Stay safe.
Bye for now. See you soon.
