Hi there georgeous ones… are you enjoying your day? Does the sun shine as bright in your place as it does in mine? You can see it outside my window… the street outside is overexposed due to the bright sunlight.
Still, I am in my atelier. For now anyway because there are some things I want to finish today before I go sit on my balcony to catch some of those sunrays on my skin.
My balcony… no, I don’t have a picture of it yet as I am still crocheting patches for the ‘granny square’ (see last week’s post) but given the pace at which I crochet it is possible that it will be finished next week. I’ll show you how far I’ve come but first, here’s a photo of my desk for today’s “What’s On Your Workdesk, Wednesday”
And another photo, taken of the desk to the left… a bunch of small cotton balls and behind that, on the paper-drawers, are the patches I crocheted so far.
There are 135 and I will need 180 patches to make a sqare big enough to cover my lawn chair. The black cotton balls to the right will be used to crochet all the patches together.
I work on the granny square in the evening while watching tv with my beloved. During the day I can be find in my atelier – right now I’m working on week 18 in my ‘Chronicles’ art journal but here’s two older spreads that I did not publish yet
We visited my son, who lives in Amsterdam now, in week 15 – hence the postcard of the Amsterdam houses and a photo of me and beloved on an Amsterdam bridge.
The Chronicles of Marit 2017 – Week 16
In week 16 I decided to stop drinking alcohol for 30 days… drinking wine on a daily base has become a habit and I thought it might be good to ‘reset’ my body. Also, I’m trying to loose some weight. I’ve always been quite slim but since the menopause I’ve gained weight that is hard to get rid of. I’ve never been on a diet before and it was not going very well so I thought drinking water instead of wine might do the trick. (It did, ’cause I’m alcohol free for 27 days now and I lost 2 kilo’s, yay!)
And that’s it for today sweeties… thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy your day.
Do something creative.
Walk in the Sun.
Drink some water 🙂
