Cheering up


I’m having a really crappy day, being kind of anxious for no particular reason, and have been cheering myself up by leaving my pretty table runner on the table after taking pictures of it.
The table runner is one of four that I made 4 years ago, and I promised a friend to make a pattern. It’s about time I guess, but today I’m not in the mood for doing much productive. I have one quilt that only needs some beading, one that only needs some words and one that needs the binding stitched to the back. Well, they (and all the patterns that I should have would have could have finished) will still be here tomorrow.

I’ll be meeting up with my friendly little sewing group tonight; that will cheer me up for sure! The table runner has to go when I do so it won’t get dirty from food and small & happy fingers and newspapers; I’ll put it back tomorrow though.

  3. I hope your group and being with like minded friends cheers you up. We all have days like that. Some days we just need to be kind to ourselves and not expect to be very creative every single day. Your runner is gorgeous!

  15. Hi Nina Lise,

    Must admit not being over my illness yet is bringing me down, but your table runner sure helps :)
    I hope you feel much brighter soon too. I have always found that being part of a sewing group cheers me up no end. If "misery loves company'then perhaps its to shoo the blues away :)
    Be kind to yourself :)

    Lots of hugs,
    Sharon

  16. Soon spring will be here and that should help keep away all the crabbiness-for-no-reason. In the meantime, that beautiful tablerunner will pass for spring color!
