In Wisconsin we’ve turned cold. Temps have dipped from the thirties to the teens. Stepping outside I catch my breath and feel a hitch from the icy temps. This means I’m starting the hibernating part of the year.
I’ve finished the dish towels for the girls in Georgia. Now I’m moving on to other projects. Since it’s so cold outside, it’s a good time to work on the bigger projects. I’ve a number of projects I want to work through while I’m finishing up a show of which I have about five more episodes. If I’m responsible, I can watch three or four a night.
I believe I will be working on a new pattern tonight. I’ll have to see how it goes but Vicki has asked for cat beds from some of the left over fleece she’s left for another blanket. I’m going to pair it with the jute rope I have and see how the project turns out.
Winter is on us with the colder temps but it’s supposed to warm up a bit today and tomorrow. It will be interesting to see if it is warm enough to melt the snow again. I think we may go back to green / brown grass but then colder temps.
The erratic weather makes me want to hunker down and work on inside projects. It’s time to clear out my work basket and finish off a couple of those projects and then turn to another of Vicki’s baskets so I can keep progressing through her piles of yarn.
At the same time, I would like to go back to writing more. I may have to schedule a long weekend and devote my time to writing, editing, and working on my marketing plan. I have a number of crochet patterns to publish. This is the time people are looking for new ideas and new patterns to try so it would be good to complete the patterns and publish them.
My schedule for the next several weeks is busy enough where getting work like that done is difficult. I’ll have to see what I can manage for creating a schedule for myself. It really does come down to good organization and scheduling.
