The Good Yarn Stall-- a passionate Spitalfield's Market find.
Well, the "idea" has hit--- yet another--- challenge.
I did all my cutting--- 4 pairs of unloved jeans were scavenged;
went out and purchased my BIG and ORANGE needles;
knit until I created just short of 17 feet of this...
Then I reached a point of struggle... my original idea was just not working... my only recourse?
Now I sit and stare...I'm thinking crochet... must buy BIG hook!
To make matters worse, all of these had to land at my door this week...
Can you spell d-i-s-t-r-a-c-t-i-o-n?
Well, there is a storm quickly approaching.... I think I'll blissfully fall into the arms of procrastination. Enjoy your weekend!
...Rules to Live By
- Make up your mind to be happy. Learn to find pleasure in simple things.
- Make the best of circumstances. No one has everything and everyone has something of sorrow.
- Don’t take yourself too seriously.
- Don’t let criticism worry you. You can’t please everybody.
- Don’t let your neighbors set your standards; be yourself.
- Do things you enjoy doing but stay out of debt.
- Don’t borrow trouble. Imaginary things are harder to bear than actual ones.
- Since hate poisons the soul, do not cherish enmities and grudges. Avoid people who make you unhappy.
- Have many interests. If you can’t travel, read about places.
- Don’t spend time brooding over sorrows and mistakes.
- Do what you can for those less fortunate than yourself.
- Keep busy at something. A very busy person never has time to be unhappy.
When you read the words it seems so simple.
It's all in the application... don't forget to breath!
Now I have two lofty goals for 2008: master the invisible zipper... and the French macaron!
