Hello Everyone! It’s been a rough couple of weeks, not gonna lie. Finding my positivity at times like this, is sometimes very difficult. You see I live in a lot of pain everyday, so I guess you could say I’m used to it. Sometimes even I, the queen of positivity, gets depressed. So I have pretty much gotten nothing done lately.
I have been doing a lot of spinning. I also got my first 4 oz. of fiber for SE2SE. It’s a Black Welsh Mountain sheep. It’s on the endangered list and originally came from the UK. But, there are farms here in the states that also raise them. His name is Cai, not sure if I can share his picture, but his fleece is very black, and apparently he enjoyed rolling in the hay quite a bit. Once I get the fleece washed, I’ll share a little more about him.
I took the advice of Betsan Corkhill and started a crochet Mandala. I’m using Bernat Handicrafter Cotton in a size 5, with a 2.00mm Crochet hook. It takes a lot of concentration to make some of these. This is an advanced pattern and is going to get a lot bigger before it’s done. Usually people use a lot of scraps to make these things. I’m only using 2 colors, it will be a gift for a friend and those are her favorite colors.
I think I’m coming to the end of this bout of depression. I really needed to get some work done. What are some of the things that you do, to help get yourself out of what I call a blue funk? Please share comments on my website, it’s the best place to reach me. I don’t always get comments left on Facebook or IG. So please share in the comments here. Thanks.
I will be back again real soon, so remember stay positive it really does help.
