- I run when the weather is nice, and when it's not I exercise indoors a couple times a week.
- I am participating in the 52 Weeks to an Organized Home Challenge at Home Storage Solutions 101. Believe it or not, this is fun. I love to be organized and it's much less daunting one week at a time. Never having Tupperware crash down on your head again = priceless.
- I knit and crochet so that I can spend time with the hubby, catch up on some TV and craft simultaneously! Go multi-tasking!
- The hubby and I are planning our first trip to LONDON! Soon we'll be spending 8 days in London with side trips to Scotland, Wales and Paris! Can't wait to bring back real London pics!
One other reason I haven't been sewing as much is that it's given me a lot of back problems. Yeah yeah, I'm only 26 so I shouldn't be complaining. But like I said, all I did for months and months was sit at that sewing machine. It was bound to have an effect. It's gotten better with physical therapy and simple changes like this, adding a pillow to my desk chair for some lumbar support. I still have to watch the amount of time I sit at the machine though. Gone are the days when I can get home from work and finish a whole bag in one evening. My maximum time limit is about two hours on a really good day, or about an hour after a full day at work. Really cuts down on productivity, but a benefit is that I get to spend time on all my hobbies, not just one.
I have a few more projects that are in progress, including a quilt for a friend, a bag for a customer and a travel set for myself for my London trip! Photos are to come, I promise this time. I also need to take photos of my newly renovated sewing room! The colors are below. The swatch on the left is the wall color, which looks a little more grey here. In real life it has a nice bluish tone. The baseboards and as many accents as I could paint are the color of the almost white swatch on the right. Nice light colors to keep the room bright and finally give me a place to take photos for my shop!
