Quilted Coat

Have you ever had something like spring fever in autumn?

I feel like a squirrel that’s as cracked as the nut it is trying to get into.

High energy within is held at bay from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.  By the time I can spend the energy, after 5 p.m, I am so beat down from the hours before I don’t have the pep in my step to do it.  It’s not a physical beat down but a mental one.

It was very warm outside today, so I sat at my desk and ate lunch.  While I was eating I thought to myself “I should have brought some small hand work like crocheting or a small hand quilted project like ornaments or a Christmas stocking  This is a way I could use up some of this creative energy brewing inside”.

I had a book to read, it’s a good story, but when I”m in this frame of mind it is hard for me to stay focused on the story.  I tried reading after I ate, but after a few paragraphs my mind began wondering.  So I began to type.

You’ve guessed it, I started on this during my lunch break.

Yesterday David met me in Ozark and we spent my lunch hour together.  We went to a flea market that Audre and I discovered last week when she and I spent lunch together.

$1.00

I found a cute little Santa Clause with a quilted coat.  I think he is adorable.

I also found an angel by Jim Shore.  She is from his 2002 collection.  I’ve always like Jim Shore’s creations and was tickled when I found this one.
$4.98
Needless to say I enjoyed my lunch break.  I use to get to spend lunch with David everyday, but with my current job it doesn’t happen very often.
Thank goodness the weekend is near.  I’m so ready for it.
Hugs,
Sonia

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
