diy day

Since I am not feeling up to a lot these days, I am finding little things to keep me occupied.
Pinterest is of course helping me with new project ideas.

Trying to find something other than shopping on etsy but I will share a few buys in my next post.

For now, it is all about yarn and some quick sewing projects.

Again I am all about the Valentines Day decor but have no ideas.
I think I will do some hand sewn hearts today.  I am not a great hand seamstress but I have no choice.

I do have some super cute paper straws in red and white stripes that I think I will put the hand sewn hearts atop and put in a crochet vase.

Now for the project I am really in love with,  Inspiration....

I adore my new Candy Bag but I love the one Furla has on their site.  So I am starting on mine.  It won't be near as extravagant but it will be super eclectic and one of a kind when done.

I started with the super luscious yarn Leona brought for me.  Covering the is coming along nicely so far.  I have so much more planned for it so stay tuned.

They are calling for more rain here today,YAY, and I got out and slllloooowly walked up my street with my hubby.  I got chilled to the bone and came right back in to warm up.    Snowflake flannel to keep me warm and my old tattered comforter, with fat cat by my side. 

Really hoping to start feeling better by weekends end after really taking it easy.  I know it is a long road but I so wanna get back into my normal life.  It is so hard to wait :(

But I am learning to eat again and this is my lunch.
Chicken and artichokes with rice and whole wheat tortilla....fresh and yum!!!

Hi Amy - be patient dear heart,. it will come. I think I like your bag much better than the other one to be honest - I just adore that red colour.
Also your snowflake flannell looks so cosy and inviting.
