I'm having a day off today. A day off to me means no cooking meals or doing housework. Also, no going out if I don't want to. And, not making the numerous cups of tea we always drink throughout the day. I don't very often get a day off, even on holiday we go self-catering so there is still cooking to do. So, what do I do on a day off - I spend time in my craft room. Today I'm still on my chicken making binge. I have decided I like the back-to-front chickens best, I've got more cut out in this autumn themed fabric and will carry on with these, then I'll probably make a couple of zipped bags (another obsession at the moment). I was given a box of six inch zips years and years ago and didn't know what to do with them. This is one of the best things about being a hoarder, I didn't get rid of them and now have found a use for them.
This morning I spent a bit of extra time searching out interesting blogs and have added some to my links. One blog had a 'show us what's at your bedside' (or something like that) so later today I intend taking a picture of my bedside to show here. This article is in this blog. I love to look at blogs that show their homes, especially the Norwegian ones, I think their decorating style is gorgeous. I see some blogs that have pictures of a shelf with various things on, they look so decorative and artistic, my shelves just look full. My house can be a bit dusty and some rooms look a bit untidy, though I have to say all my cupboards and drawers are organized, so you don't see how organized I can be. My ideal house would be loads of cupboards with very little out, I suppose that is Shaker style.
What's your idea of a day off, I'd love to hear.
