No more slump! - Woohoo!

Silence is golden, duct tape is silver, creativity is every color of the rainbow .. or at least every color of yarn I have!

I've gotten on such a crochet kick lately that I feel "off" when I don’t have a hook in my hand. I've even taken to popping them in my hair clip or ponytail like I did with pens back in the day at my father's restaurant. The creative slump is over!

I just can’t help myself! I've got a head full of ideas and wish I could create as fast as my brain is working! I dove into my stash of yarn with childlike abandonment. I went wild. I took out that skein of yarn that's "so nice and I only have so much so I don’t know what to make". I made 2 hats - one Preemie (2-lb) and one that's 9-18M. I was having so much fun, I didn’t care that the yarn was 70% wool (which I'm allergic too). Some time you have to "suffer" for your art. I had so much fun I didn't care. Still a bit itchy and I keep having to clear my throat .. but they came out really cute and I had so much fun! (And, yes, many people would say "You should have taken Benadryl before you started!" Would if I could but I'm allergic to that too! Haha). The only downside was I've hd the yarn for about 18 months and after finally using it and falling in love with it out of the skein I found out that it was discontinued. :( Wish I'd bought more

Hubby has the day off from work today. I'm putting him in charge of the home schooling so I can get a few things done around the house. Then it's back to the yarn. Though before I start creating, I do need to take care of the photographing/posting side of things. THEN it will be straight back to the yarn ;)

I have LOADS of sewing ideas swirling too. The one UFO (Un Finished Object)I have only has hand sewing left. I'm itching (not from wool - haha) to get back on my machine though. Haven't used my Singer since October when I had a custom order for a Halloween costume. But .. not always so easy to do with a 10 month old (I really can’t believe he's 10 months old already! Time sure does fly!)

Time for another cup of coffee I think before I end up in the Land of Nod. With Munchkin teething pretty badly I was woken up at 6.30 by screaming. I finally got him to go back to sleep 2 hours later. Goober and Hubby are still asleep, so with the house this quiet this early I would like to nap. But I know I need to use this time to get a jump start on the daily housework so that I can get back into the Land of Yarn :)
