I am just unispired today. Maybe because it is gloomy and grey outside. I am not sure. I guess I could talk about some of my projects I have been working on.

First one is a purple scarf. This one was a stash buster. I took three different purple yarns and crocheted a scarf. I worked down the length instead of the typical stripes going across the width. I rather like the way it turned out. I don't know if I want to put it in my shop or give it as a gift to a friend. I am still debating that one. I will have to post a pic this weekend and see what you think.

I went to one of my fav craft stores on Tuesday. I was looking for a reasonably priced shadowbox. I found some lovely unreasonably priced ones so I decided to cruise my favorite sections: yarn, beads and paper. I found some colors in yarn that I just fell in love with: celadon, terra cotta & aqua. Together I think they are a stunning combination. For the last three evenings I have been working with this palette. I love this combination so much it may become the colors I use in my bathroom whenever I get the motivation to take the ugly old paper off the walls. The ugly wallpaper is really starting to get on my nerves...I really want to make a change. I am tired of burgundy and blue. Everything in my house is either burgundy or blue (except for my craft room and my daughter's bedroom) I need a change...slipcovers for the furniture and a new color for the walls. I want to do something...but what?...I am at this moment....uninspired.

That's my blog today...I may be unispired but I am still blessed!

God bless!!

You sound like me. Overstimulated perhaps? I get going and going, then I crash and don't feel like doing anything at all. LOL
The colors sound pretty. Don't forget to show us.

I could be overstimulation and a let down after the end of the play.

I am off tomorrow so I will try and post some pics of my scarves.

Now Gloria if I were closer we would have that bathroom whipped in to shape in no time! You know we would!
Just go in there and say this is it, it's time for a change!!! Just start with a tiny corner before you know it, all the old is gone ready for new!! Your colors sound great just imagine what everything would like dressed in those colors!!!! Gee, a three day weekend you could get a lot done!!! Have a great day off and a wonderful weekend!!
