I just went through a week-long hiatus from doing anything crafty. No sewing, no knitting, no blogging.
What I did do instead, was spend time with people: looking into their eyes and appreciating their sparkle, giving them hugs, holding their hands as we walked together, talking to them and listening back, drawing with them, giving up my iPad and iPhone so they could use it to play a game and draw.
I found an 18-inch doll at the local H-E-B (a grocery store) that was on sale for only $10! I’m happy to think that because of this cool price reduction right before Easter, many girls in Texas got a Texas Girl! You could choose one in a cowboy outfit (that was my first choice, but they were sold out), a Quinceniera dress and tiara, a cheerleader suit with pom poms, a casual outfit, or this soccer gear with shin guards and all.
My cats missed me, but I got to hang out with some other felines. I resumed working on the diagonally knit scarf when I came home; it is knit out of “Flower” from the Plymouth Yarn Italian Collection, a little gift that Ethel got me when Yarnworkshad their big yard sale. Spring-y!
Hope you all had happy holidays!
