September was a hoot!
Still 3 months to get through first and as we travelled to work on our first morning back in the lashing down rain & having got up in near darkness (we had our company shutdown last week) I couldn't help but feel a little in despair of the dark nights approaching and the lack of sunshine. I have to remain positive though - I really struggle this time of the year and yesterday was almost frantic inside - a tell tale sign that things are on the change. For those of you who don't have SAD be thankful as it's a real drain.
So on a positive note, I did have a smile to myself as my dear friend Linda has joined a Solo September SAL - basically you focus on one project for the whole of September and stitch only that. She will be laughing reading this post as she will know that I ONLY ever stitch on one project as it gives me the heebee geebees to have more than one thing on the go and for the first time ever I have this project and a Bothy Threads sewing room sampler which I bravely put to one side to join this SAL (influenced by her) The poor old Bothy Threads hasn't had a look in for ages but I know I need to stay focused on the Snowflower Diary sampler to get it finished on time.
We have a lovely week off, some of it spent on the Purbecks in our camper van and some spent at home.
