I just had to make a real effort today, getting a blog post done.
If not for any readers that might drop by, then definitely for my own sake. I seem to have lost my focus big time as summer came upon us. I have hardly sewn a thing, knitted some rows half-heartedly, and neglected my blog. Time to get back on track now!
Even if my sewing machine has felt lonely lately, I've gotten lots done. I finished a humongous flowerbed, after a couple of years planning. We also laid all that cobblestone, and things are starting to look nice around our house. Finally!

Just sad, really.
Still some way to go..
It all looks better, but it still needs time to fill out. My flowerbed is filled with two kinds of Hostas, and some Alchemilla mollis. Also bought a small japanese maple tree, which I hope one day will be tall and gorgeous with its red leaves.

As I might have mentioned earlier, I've developed a total crush on running! I have signed up for a couple more races in september, and training hard. I really enjoy getting into shape, and have maybe channeled my focus mostly through my running shoes.... ahem. I will freely admit that buying running shoes is just as addictive as fabric shopping!
|Best friends. Pathetic, I know :)|
But actually, I DID sew something! My first curtain for our front door entrance. Yes, it is small and un-fancy, but I got it made. I don't know why, but I hate sewing square things! Curtains and pillow cases, and table cloths... ACK!
Such a waste of time and fabric. But once I hung the darn thing, I kind of dug it :) Maybe home decorating isn't as bad after all?

In other and more exciting news; just this week and then one more to go until summer vacation! Work has been strenuous lately, so I am really looking forward to three weeks off completely. Maybe I'll get my sewing mojo going!? Stay tuned :)
