Happy Wednesday! I've been away from the laptop for the past several days, just taking a bit of a breather while I attend to some real-life things. I miss this space acutely when I don't visit often enough. I was really glad when Yarn Along day rolled around. I like the way a weekly prompt focuses my time and attention. I joined in last May, hoping Yarn Along would keep my long summer break feeling more organized and purposeful, and here I am six months later, still finding the same important reasons to stay involved. It makes me happy.
This week, I'm working on Hensfoot and a few other small gift projects behind the scenes. Sadly, I have learned that someone no longer wants my handmade gifts. This truly breaks my heart. I know most of you would feel the same way. But maybe it's also a blessing, since I was falling behind on my gift projects for the holidays anyway, and this will take some of the pressure off. If there's one thing I've learned, it's that making, and giving, should be joyous.
I'm reading a wonderful book that I won in a recent giveaway. Modern Vintage Gifts is the latest book by our talented blogging friend, Helen Philipps. She gave away two copies of her new book on her blog, and I was one of the lucky winners! It's a beautiful book, full of lovely project ideas, and I can't wait to give them a try. Thank you, Helen!
Thank you for joining in with my Winter Project Link Party! The November party is live until just before midnight on Friday; if you haven't already joined in, you still have plenty of time to do so. It's fine to link up with a post you've already written about your projects, it doesn't have to be a dedicated post just for the party. All I ask is that you include a link back to the party post so that others can join in too. It just helps spread the word. I've been happy to hear that some of you are getting new traffic from the party, that's exactly what I had hoped would happen. I hope you're finding motivation and inspiration too.
