Planning A Restful Weekend...

My "Grace" necklace.
Remember that "creative imperative" I'm always telling you about?
Well, I think it's gone on a little break...and taken my sewing mojo along with it.

I'm sure it hasn't gone far - or for too long - but my attention span in the studio is 
like that of a four year old. I'm more content right now to dust and rearrange than 
actually sit down and make something. That doesn't happen to me very often.
"Grace" and sand dollar charms, with my "lucky" sixpence.
I'm looking forward to enjoying the holiday and taking a little time off.
I'll be posting over the weekend, but I'm going to concentrate on Handsome, 
Tag and homekeeping rather than playing in the studio. Maybe we'll head to
the beach or take a little day trip. I'm sure a cookout will be in order for Monday.
I have a knitting project to work on, and perhaps a little handwork, but I won't
be sitting at the sewing machine until next week. I'll grab my camera, like a
good blogger, and I'll be sure to take lots of pictures to share with you.
Labor Day is the last official holiday of summer. If you're anywhere north of
Jacksonville, soon the leaves will turn and there will be a little nip in the air. 
We always had a big party this weekend, followed by Labor Day Monday, when
 we cleaned up the yard, put away our lawn furniture and prepared for fall and the 
inevitable winter that followed. This weekend was always our farewell to summer.
So, have a great weekend, enjoy your time off...and please be safe. 
Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Dear Donna, That farewell to summer is just a little sad, but I do enjoy the change of seasons to the fullest. There are so many new things each season, yes, even that inevitable big, big, snowfall. It is all beautiful in its own way. Take care on your break, rest, and then you will be up to tackling and learning that new sewing machine. That is always kind of a dread for me the first time I sit down at a new one. Have a blessed holiday.

How did Labor Day weekend end up in August? Summer being over is sad to me as I love Summer. Enjoy your time with Handsome and Tag. Not to worry about your studio sewing time...taking a break is a good thing dear. Stay Safe and Savor Your Pinch of Joy...

I'm with you. I have not had the crafting spark for a while now. Which makes me sad. But I will be spending some time with my BFF next month and she has a way of setting a fire under me :-) Meanwhile I am enjoying the holiday weekend with my hubby and our AS.
