The Power Of Rest

Having been more ill than I like to admit to has given me time to sleep. I am a big believer in the power of sleep - and I think I am beginning to win the battle over this viral whatever. I sleep an easy 10 hours a day now - and could, quite honestly, take naps each day and be happy. I have had some time to catch up and am almost, I am so deliriously happy to be able to say, done with my "have-tos". I am tired of self imposed dead lines - well maybe not all self imposed.... but none the less dead-lines. The last thing to finish is the "3 Fleece Bag" for our County Fair. I finished the beading & am working on the handle and that will be that! I want to take some time to play, to day dream and to make small things for friends. The basket - shown just a bit above - is for a friend .. it's so nice to think of them while you make something just for that person!

I have also been enjoying taking time to learn about my new addiction - fountain pens. I may not be able to afford to get the one I really want - or would like to replace from my youth - a Mont Blanc - any time soon - but looking at these small works of art really does life my spirits. Fountain pens can be such small, but perfect little works of art. The nibs in themselves are amazing - just think about what a marvel they are! I DID find a beauty that I can;t wait to get. You'll all love it when I post photos of it! Just my colors too !

I have another surprise that I can't wait to photograph - the shirt that Vicki sent to me....I just have to take it off long enough to photograph it ! She made my day last week - and I wore the shirt to work last "easy does it" Friday. My friends always make my days sunnier - thank you all.
