I read this on Flylady.net the other day:
"What I'm doing to pamper myself this holiday season is to knit!
I love to knit but my other responsibilities throughout the year often preclude it. So I decided that I would knit at least three times a week throughout this holiday season. I decided that instead of trying to make a large project, I'd make Christmas Ornaments that are mini-sweaters, each one different.
In just the last week and a half, from doing this, I've made 20 ornaments and mastered three new knitting techniques that I've been wanting to do for ages! The ornaments are so small that I can get a good portion of them knitted in a 15-minute block, and one day when I had a lot of waiting time, I carried the knitting along with me and made 3 of them while I would have otherwise been bored or irritated by "wasting time" waiting. Instead I was calm and happy.
I 'll bet Bernadette is doing something like these.
What kind of stitching activity pampers you? I love to look through my old smocking and knitting magazines and find new projects and Shirley likes to look though her quilt books.
Susann likes to work with her orchids and talk to her grandchildren, which leads her to her applique books to create more cute outfits like these:
Tell us your favorite way to spend some stitching time!
