Why you should just DO something

 I’m going through some major life changes right now. It would be super easy to just sit back and do nothing. Unfortunately that isn’t in my nature. Maybe it would be good to be able to disconnect for a while, but it isn’t something I’ve ever learned to do. I’ve never seen the point of it…..can you tell I’m a type “A” personality?

While destashing and going through the huge pile of supplies that came back to Arkansas from Texas when my place sold there, I came across this basket of cotton yarns. Lots and lots of little pieces and nothing with enough to make a planned anything.

It would have been easy to pitch this stuff and not have to deal with it. Unfortunately, pitching stuff in the trash isn’t in my nature either. There will be a monstrous pile of donated things before I”m done, too.

I got out some of my pattern books thinking I would just start something, but there wasn’t enough of anything for any patterns. So, I just started crocheting.  Odd that with RA I can do the motions needed for this.  I think I’m going to call it free-style crochet and I think it will look a lot like a crazy quilt when it gets done. I guess if it serves the purpose of keeping my mind quiet in the evenings and gives me something creative to do, it is a good thing.

  1. looks very cool, and therapeutic too for your hands and your head, so you have a win-win-win 🙂 And you can sell it on esty maybe if you can bear to part with it.

  2. Hi Janice,I can relate totally. And, your crocheting is beautiful. It will keep someone very warm when it is done. So glad you didn't just toss it.Just keep moving forwards! It is the way to go.Judy
