I hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend, filled with family, friends and of course, chocolate. We spent a relatively quiet weekend but managed a little of all of the above. It was different but enjoyable.
Last week was difficult for us. We are working through our "firsts" without Mom. Her birthday was last week. It was the day I think I finally cracked and let all the bottled up emotions out. Actually it took me a few days to really recover. But I hadn't had a true meltdown since Moms funeral so I was probably a needed crash.
So I decided to go easy on myself for Easter. Not a lot of fuss, just a quiet weekend. I found it quite therapeutic to sit at my frame and just quietly create. And I managed to finish 2 small rugs. (Binding and all)
Here is the results - "Early Bird" a Lori Brechlin, Notforgotten Farm design.
And a fun little penny rug. I really enjoyed hooking this and using some of my stash worms.
They are both listed in my Etsy store. See the link on my sidebar - PleasantHillStudios.
Today it's spring cleaning in the closet. All the winter sweaters and now put away out of sight and all the spring - summer stuff is making its way through the washing machine and back on the shelves or hangers. My only issue with this time of year is footwear. I have tons of boots and sandals but not much for this time of year. I'm trying to resist shoe shopping and hoping the I will wake up and sandal season will be here. A girl can dream, can't she?
