Monday Blather

I've been jumping from one project to another. I simply have no direction at this point. Here are the beginnings of yet another another idea. I'm unsure where this one will take me but uncertainty seems to be a theme around here lately. It's nothing new for me to be surrounded by so many WIP's at a given moment but I will admit that it does get a bit overwhelming at times.

My diet is going nowhere but that's okay for right now. The main thing is that I'm not gaining any more weight. I seem to be in this really hungry mode and I'm craving sweets like nothing else. All I can say is thank goodness hexagons aren't edible or I'd be a whole lot heavier right now! I am trying to keep my hands occupied with sewing so that they aren't being used to direct food into my mouth. It isn't 100% effective but it's kind of working.

I have been overwhelmed with email pertaining to the pink afghan that I am making. I have no idea what the name of the pattern is because there aren't any written instructions. This is a stitch that a co-worker taught me over 30 years ago. I searched the internet and discovered that it is either called a daisy or star stitch. I found a link on YouTube with fabulous instructions. Hope this helps.

Have a wonderful day!

Dear Lettie,
this looks like another great idea of you.
I just watched your photostream on flickr and I am deeply impressed.You are well equiped and very busy. There were so many great works but I have to say that I liked the Donot- pincushin the most.
I actually love it.
It looks soooo sweet, without having any calories. Isn´t that a dream?
I always enjoy to see what you are coming up with.

I have the same theory about my hands and food. I also find it isn't quite 100% effective. Well, what are you going to do?? Loving the hexies!

Sometimes being in a holding pattern is good when trying to loose weight. I have found that if I have one good day well planned with my meals every 3 hours...I tend to do better overall. My mood is better and I am more willing to exercise.

I'm so glad hexagons are not edible....then the pictures you take would not be so beautiful!!!
