You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

A Belated "Top Of The Morn To Ya"

Is there anything better than than the "spur of the moment" project to keep you on your toes?  Not for me there isn't. I love the distraction from real life and I can get lost in the challenge. It not only forces me to be creative It helps me use up some of my "on hand" supplies that I have acquired.( In this case yarn from my abundant stash.) I have always worked best with a deadline hanging over my head. It is the open ended expectations that beat me. Such was the case a few weeks ago when my daughter asked me at the last minute to make an Irish themed hat for my 19
month old grandson to wear in the school parade celebrating St. Patrick's day. Naturally I said yes and "got right to it". I dug through my bin of yarn scraps and found what I needed.  TaaaDaaa! Here he is Prince Drew, sporting his little leprechaun hat!  This project served us all indeed. A convenient solution for my daughter, a show stopper cuteness for my grandson for sure and the  JUMP START  I needed to get back "in the saddle" and continue chipping away  at the pile of half completed projects that I still have waiting!
