Sunday Musings: Feeling Refreshed

Sometimes in life you just to take a break to regroup your thoughts. This past week has allowed me to do just that and I’m feeling much better about many things. I’m no longer in a funk and oh my gosh I got quite a few things finally finished. It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you focus and set your mind to it.

Spinning … I finished spinning my April Breed Study and love how it turned out. This fiber was interesting to spin. It started off a bit course to the touch but after chain plying, it became much softer. I ended up the 89 yards of worsted weight, which I am quite happy with. My friend Sherrill, the creator of #spin15aday and this breed study, told me this months study is the last of the tonal colors, so the plan of using my finished skeins for advent knitting this year may change because of that. We’ll see.

Needlework… I finished the sheep embroidery project that I started in February and truly like how it turned out. I made this piece my own and love the modifications.

Knitting… Right now I only have one project on my needles, which may change but for now I’m ok with that because I have made great progress on my Azalea Tee . I hope to start the upper body, and sleeves, really soon. I’m really excited about this sweater and the weight on the fabric will be perfect for the Arizona summer weather.

Reading…. I finished I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon. I found this book quite interesting but the back and forth of the storylines (jumping between past and present) was not very appealing to me at all. With that being said, I gave this book four stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ as I found the story quite fascinating and the authors perspective of Anna Johnson, the woman who claimed to be Anastasia Romanov, was quite compeling and even a bit refreshing. I have often wondered what Russia would have been like if the royal family lived and continued to rule. It would be interesting to know if the chain of events in 1919 played out differently would have made Russia more of a free country or if would still have continued down the path of communism.

    1. Thank you so much! I really enjoyed my embroidery project, it was a lot of fun! The Eider was interesting to spin and I so agree about the color, very cheerful 😀


  1. glad I’m not the only one who gets into a funk. I wake up with the best of intentions and after lunch I’m not in the mood for most of them. Thankfully all is not lost, I tend to read when I don’t feel like much else.
