So a week ago today I broke a toe. Not the first time I have don'e so, by a long shot, and I doubt that it will be the last. Add to it I have had to explain how I managed to do so while trying to bring pots (large very heavy pots) of plants in, and it not involving any of said pots falling or dropping in any way, to the gentleman of the house three times. I need to pick my crafting and other projects back up. And It is driving me nuts that I can't focus enough to do so. The issues is that I am the type of person who needs to run through spurts of energy at different points int he day. As anyone who has broken a toe or bone below the, let's play it safe and say, knee there is no such thing as 'running' through any sort of physical energy for a good stint. Previous experience says that I'm looking at two to three more weeks of taking it easy, also know as going blinking stir crazy, before I can start doing anything that might resemble a normal spurt.
So, there has been *LOTS* of blog reading with my wenchy knock off.
I have started to come up with some projects that I can do sitting still, like these wonderful book covers we saw on design*sponge. Paper leather bound books and vintage style dust covers, you can't tell me that these aren't some smart looking and fairly simple dress ups for a book shelf.
I'm hoping that the possibility of meeting up with or local knitting wenches will get my fingers going again since I only have three projects on the needles. It is a perfect project to keep the mind and hands busy when the feet can't be. I just hate being in a funk, it drives me nuts.
So here is to thinking happy thoughts about some stitching and witching with local wenches.
