it as I have been routing about a bit of late. I noticed in the sunlight some dusting needs doing too. When you are cutting fabrics it makes a cloth dust and I want to get it sorted as it is bothering me. Then on Thursday I start my day with some modicum of order - which I need to create, if my work space is in a muddle then, so am I.
So I have also made a start on my holiday journal which I have bought. It is a moleskin one ( not a real mole you understand, this is a brand) it is orange colour and I have started sorting it for my ramblings and doing a little art journaling at the same time. I have made some paper acorns as you know and other little bits and have got a few little Autumnal sayings going in there too. I want this journal to not only remind me of our holiday with my thoughts as well as our days but also I would like it to be visually pretty as well. I am starting this journal with this trip to America and I will continue with it when we go to Canada next year.
The other day my husband was working from home but it was horrendously busy for him, so we broke off for dinner and an hours sit down and then he went back in his office to work. I hate he is up stairs and I am down so I decided to be in my sewing room. It was too dark to start stitching so I decided to journal instead. Writing is another passion of mine and I love art too so I sat happily doing some artistic crafting whilst he was working. I was having fun trying to figure out a way to stitch in some fabric bits to some pages, I love trying to work out the almost impossible. If the book is already made up it is a little bit more tricky ..
Then I decided to get ready for bed and sit there and read until he had finished ... I know if he gets what he really needs to do, done, then he will sleep well for the next very long day ahead of him.
I keep a journal of sayings and quotes that I like and some are mine that I have written and the rest are from others. I had scribbled a few down in my rough book and so I was able to write those up as well. My husband always says his writing looks like a spider has fallen in a ink well and climbed out over a page ( it does actually) and he says he never enjoyed penmanship but wish he had. I love writing and I guess it why I love writing to all my pen pals as well so that we send and receive lovely hand written letters and keep the art of snail mail going .... Nothing like getting a letter through the post and sitting in a cosy chair with a warm drink and reading a letter. You get to read it again too and with chatty news and few little gifts we all send to one another it is so much better that a gas bill, don't you think!
Today I must collate the photos from the weekend of the vintage fair wonder that was Daylesford today so that I can do a write up for you tomorrow and I have lots of delicious stitchery to do to so that is it for today from me. I will see you back here tomorrow.
Have a wonderful day whatever you are up to and of course as always Happy Stitching! XX
Fingers crossed this little video works ....
