No Worries

Hello Friends,
    Thanks to those of you who e-mailed me because you were worried about me since I hadn't been on blogger this month.  Bloggers are the nicest people.  I so wish we all lived close enough to get together for tea!  I'm fine.  I've just been taking a break while I evaluate my New Year's resolutions. I have truly enjoyed reading and posting blogs and I am thankful for all  the lovely local people who have supported my little sewing business.  But (and I'm talking about a big But(t), I have found that all the time that I put into sewing for my business and making things to post on my blog has not done my backside any favors.  Over the last couple of years I went from being a very active person to kind of a slug.  Funny how the less I moved, the less I wanted to move.  Science has proved that right? A body in motion tends to stay in motion. improve my health and loosen up my tight clothes I have decided to get back to my old active self.  That means pretty much giving up my sewing business and spending less time crafting things to show on my blog (Unfortunately, I'm a slow crafter so it takes me a long time to make anything).  I'm not giving up blogging, just slowing down quite a bit.  I will definitely be reading your blogs but I apologize in advance for my spotty blogging.

Having said all that, I am currently working on a couple of quilts that I will blog about later and I have completed some knitted scarves since my last post.
Doesn't this look like..

this candy? 

Colors don't look quite so bright in this picture (ooh, just shaking my fist at gray winter days that drain the color out of everything!)

Made this lovely scarf out of Lion Brand Yarn's "Amazing" yarn which is 53% wool and 47% acrylic.  The color changes are truly "amazing" don't you think.  Find this free pattern HERE.

  1. I am sooooo glad that you are okay....and glad that you are getting back into motion but that being said "A gal has to do what a gal has to do"....good luck...

    Love your knitting.

  2. Lucky me to get to visit with you in person. :o) Your scarves are gorgeous.

  3. I can fully understand your dilemma although with me its the opposite i have to come and craft in my room away from food so that i dont eat it. So i guess if i haven't blogged for a while it means i am stuffing my face.
    Your scarves are all amazing i would have to pick the second one as my favourite.

  4. Great work Rumi- love the scarves but the Amazing one really is amazing with the colours.

  5. You are doing the right thing by taking care of yourself. Go for it and enjoy.
    Those scarfs are going to keep some necks nice and cozy.
