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!

  1. I thank God for you all the time. I’m glad you’re feeling better now with the spring coming. Take it easy, sister. We really need to remind ourselves to make time for ourselves to ensure we are mentally and physically well taken care of. Every day, our husband and children take so much out of us. Sometimes, we don’t realise we’re burnt out before it’s too late…. Just want you to know you’re always in my thoughts and prayers. You’re not alone in your Aja, Aja, fighting. I’m with you!

  2. btw, I L-O-V-E your sewing machine! What a Brother!

  3. Thanks, dear! ! <3
