People make time for the things they like to do in their lives. I make time now to walk. I enjoy my walks even on the days that my allergies act up due to privet hedge blooming (which is going on right now). I have found that it is really the only exercise I enjoy so I make time for it.
I'm an avid crafter though and always make time each day to work on something. It is my stress reliever and mental health cure. I have done some many different crafts over the years but as I've been aging, I've only been doing the things I enjoy the most. I have this thing about me that once I start something I have to finish it before starting something new so I have very few left over projects that need finishing. Right now I have a couple of new rugs I'm designing on paper and then keeping my hands busy in the evening hours cross stitching a small design for a pincushion. I own a large hand stitching yahoo group and each month we have a challenge theme and also a Stitch A-long..(SAL) The SAL this month is making a summer dress and our host is a lovely lady from Mexico. I've never done pattern designing before so this is a first for me. I host the SAL next month so have some work to do designing my pdf to go along with it...going to be a tea pot cozy with redwork design.
Well enough banter...Hope everyone has a blest Sunday!!
