(Finally) Some Making

I’ve been slow to get my making groove back, but finally this week I feel I can join in with Dawn for her Making + Listening series again. I’ve had a panel of trees waiting for French knots for quite a while, so I finally got to it.

I have a stack of fabric cut and a list of ideas. I need to get a move-on.

Also this week I re-ordered some postcards from Moo, with updated website/shop information on the back. I want to include a little free something with orders, and I thought, at least for now, these postcards are just the thing.

As for listening, there isn’t anything new on my music list. Mostly I’ve been listening to my younger two kids bicker. We’ve been a bit house-bound…my 9yo is being treated for Lyme Disease. He had several days with no energy at all, which, combined with his aches and fluctuating fever was enough to send us to the hospital walk-in on Saturday, where the doctor mentioned Lyme before my husband even brought it up. We’ve been limited to short excursions–the library, the karate studio–and a lot of time at home. I thought we could finally manage the grocery store today, but my oldest was sick in the middle of the night, which reminded me to be grateful for both my washing machine and the fact that this is not a solo-parenting week, because my husband handled the rug.

Oh, back to listening… I am looking forward to listening to this,¬†as soon as it arrives. Has anyone read or listened to her work? She’s new to me.

Any making going on in your world this week? Anything new on your playlist?

    Oh, the tree is great!
    The post card from moo is super neat too. I love the one that came with my order! :-)
    Sorry about the sickness in your house. Never fun!
    Thanks for playing along this week. Happy you are taking some time for at least a little bit of making!

      I’m trying! Mostly I just want to read and nap, like a literate cat. I love everything I’ve ever ordered from Moo and just keep looking for excuses to get more from them. And bonus! Their US office is in RI so I get my orders super quick. :)

    i think the postcard is a great idea :)

    and i just ordered my pouch, one i loved that you posted a while back on the blog. i meant to order it a few days ago but couldn’t for the life of me remember my etsy pw :(

    loving the new piece you’re working on and can’t wait to see what other ideas you have up your sleeve.

    lastly, sorry to hear about your son. hope he recovers quickly.

    Oh, so sorry about the sickness in your house. I hope he recovers quickly…it’s good that you caught it early. Love the trees, I think they are my favorite design of your work. No new listening here, but there is a new project…the Milk Run Shawl. I started it about 2 weeks ago and it’s slow going. That is because I knit slowly. All knitting projects are slow going!

      I just looked up that pattern and it’s beautiful! I love the ruffle effect. Nice choice for a new knitting project!

      I’m making more! And also, I thought for sure you’d comment on the fact that we added vomit to Lyme, here…

    love Pema Chodron – I have listened to “Getting unstuck” quite a few times.
    sorry to hear about the illnesses – you can’t catch a break!

    Oh no! So sorry your kiddos have not been well!
    I hope they feel better soon!

    That tree is just gorgeous…glad to see you’re fitting in creativity when you can. It keeps us sane :)

    I’m listening to Rob Lowe’s autobiography “Stories I Tell My Friends”. It’s interesting. I started to read an actual non fiction book and found that my powers of concentration are sorely lacking! I’m struggling through the Science of Consequences which is interesting but struggling is the operative word.
    As for making, I finished sewing a wedding dress so I feel accomplished.

    i always love your trees. Honestly. Beautiful.

    The author is new to me but I don’t mind a self help book and given what I’ve gone through in the last week, as you know, I could use it.

    Sorry about the lyme disease! Oh dear!
