Of course, I can’t just sit still while I am on a break from my next WIP. I have too much pent up energy to do that. So, you ask – what am I doing in between books?
Here is a list of what I have been doing with photos. Sewing, sewing, and more sewing! I have a beautiful new machine that my husband bought me last year. It has over 100 stitches. I have fun trying them out on different projects. Here is what I have done so far with more to come.
I love to crochet too. I usually do most of my crocheting (large items) in the winter months. It is so comforting to sit at night with a warm, soft and cuddly new project on my lap as it grows.
I am also in the process of making more headbands. Can’t have enough of them. I love them and wear them all fall and winter and into the spring. Summer is too hot for them. I have many more to make. Then onto my afghans again. I make them with blanket yarn. They are warm, soft and cuddly. Everyone wants one. Here are a couple I made for myself. Most I give away. Soon it will be the season of giving. I can’t wait! I have lots of items to give away! I love the feeling of joy when I give something away especially if the receiver is joyful too!
I have a few yards of other fabric – Celtics and Red Sox – to work on next. I can’t help myself. I keep giving myself projects to do to keep busy. Soon I will get back to my books. I had been feeling exhausted from publishing 12 books in two years. It was the most I had ever done. My mind is clearer now and almost ready to begin again. But now I have all these projects lined up! Yikes! I will finish them first.
Soon the holidays will be upon us and I will have to put a stop to everything and get back to shopping and decorating for the holidays. I have decorated for fall and Halloween for now. But Thanksgiving will be here before we know it and right behind that will be Christmas. I feel tired already thinking of all this. Sigh!

Oh, the headbands are such a cool idea!
Thank you Annette! I love them. 💕
You really a wonderfully creative, Janice. I love your pictures.
Thank you, Robbie! 💕
Can I get some of that energy? LOL! I’ve got several WIPs – writing and craft related – I want to get done, and could use a bit of your energy to make a dent in the pile. Of course, it would help me if I didn’t keep adding new things to the lists too… LOL!
Think energy, take a few deep breaths and forge ahead! That’s what I do. I have a lot of projects right now and a fixed time to complete them for birthdays, holidays, etc. I’ll do the best I can. So will you! Take care. 💕😀
Great advice, and thanks. 🙂 As it happens, I did manage to finish one of the projects yesterday. Maybe it was your energy inspiring my own? 😉
Great! It’s catchy! 🤣💕
