|Clever risers which save my back!|
I also have a super comfortable chair and great lighting. Just when my husband thinks he's done improving my sewing room I think of something new. He and his brother installed the extra lighting and all we had to do was buy his brother lunch. Hmmm, I wonder how many meals it would take to get him to finish the drapes?
I usually feel that my sewing room is my sanctuary in life but with this drapery project, it has not been as true. The language that was coming out of there was frightful! Especially when the drapery panels slipped out of my hands and went over the balcony. Somebody needed their mouth washed out with soap!
When I get frustrated with the sewing, I just stop and come downstairs. Playing around on the computer relaxes me like crazy but boy can I waste the time.
I find that knitting really relaxes me also. I have been knitting like a fool lately and last night, I dreamed that I had finished a scarf but had misplaced it. I was so upset it woke me up and I got out of bed to go look for it before I realized that it was all a dream. (Or was it?) Can you imagine if you could knit and sew in your sleep? It would be fabulous!
I am working on three knitting projects. The first project on the left is another easy scarf, I just can't stop making them! The middle one only requires a bit of thinking, it's another dish rag. The purple project makes me think, count and pay attention. I can only do so much of it in a night.
Today I got a massage and my therapist really worked on my right arm. She got down deep into the tissues and said "What have you been doing?" I replied, "I've been knitting like crazy, even while I sleep!"
Now if I could just find that scarf I made.
