Sew Happy : Ski Neck wrap

Technically, I mean.
The weather here in New England is still quite cold, around 30+F (<10deg C). Well… at least the snow is dwindling away and the receding snow has made it possible to see the ground again and that is a wonderful sight! I really can’t wait to start working on my vegetable garden!!! πŸ™‚

Actually for the past two months, I have been feeling really depressed. The stress from everyday life has zapped away all my energy and bring negativity to our life. πŸ™ I think I need to learn how to give up control over something, try not to do it all and just focus more on myself and my well being.

For a start, I want to tackle the mess of my house. I really do think that the state of my house is a reflection of the state of my mind. Right now it looks like tornado has just landed -_-” and so I really have to kick start my spring cleaning. Of course, I have to be really careful not to make myself overly tired while doing it. As such, I’m tackling one room at a time, starting with the easiest – the piano room!

Here’s a before and after picture…

Not too bad, right? πŸ˜‰

Hopefully, by decluttering the house, it will help to declutter my mind too. πŸ˜›

After figuring out that I also need to find some “quiet” activity or hobby to help me to occupy and calm my “active” mind, I started sewing. My first project is a simple ski neck wrap that I made for the girl.

She looks good with that wrap, right? πŸ˜‰

Because I felt quite good sewing this ski wrap, I went out to get myself a new sewing machine…


Oops… Not sure if you can tell… I actually haven’t set the sewing machine up yet. Must find time to do it soon!
