My parents made a quick trip over during the week to help out my sister, so it was nice spending some time with them.
I've been dreaming of a camping trip, just like the last one. Sadly, there are months to go before it will be warm enough.
Cleaning, sorting, and organising have continued. I know we've made a lot of progress, but there's still a long way to go. A friend has just gotten rid of all her cheap and nasty yarn. Maybe I should do the same. I've been thinking about knitting a new cardigan, but have started to itch around my neck when I wear my hand knits. It's a worry.
Next year, I want a quilt in the show. This year would be a good time to get started on that. Maybe I should make my own kits, parcelling up fabric with a pattern. Then, when I have that time open to me, there's be a plan waiting, so less dithering... and maybe even some sewing. Kind of like meal planning for quilting.
Maybe other people already do things like that; it might be one of those organisational things I don't know about.
My children have been spending lots of time playing Zoo Tycoon on the PC. It's been a long, long time since I played but I remember how absorbing it was.
This week, I'll be
- attempting to menu plan out of the resources we have here - striving for only one trip to the supermarket, with minimal spending.
- organising yarn
- taking photos on the camera, not using the lazy option and just using my phone. (Hmmm, will also be locating the camera!)
- Sewing! Something, anything. Hopefully quilting my scrappy tripalong. That would be a good thing.
- Adding creative tasks on my To Do list.
- Blogging three times.
