Brain overload

Some days I have to remind myself to stop and smell the...lavender?

My poor herbs did not do well this year, although I think it was a bad year all around with the hot weather we had. I love the smell of lavender. I have to find a good soap recipe to use some of these lovely, fragrant herbs in.

Maybe these purple flowers were subliminally part of my inspiration for the new scrappy blanket I started.

I like to save my end of skeins, in the same color family, and put them all together in a little patchwork afghan. Yet another one of my unfinished projects on the "to do" list.

I headed this entry "Brain overload", because I've been feeling a little all-over-the-place. I think it has a lot to do with the kids starting up school in the next couple of weeks. I'm hoping that things will work into a nice groove when we all get settled, until then, my little lost projects will have to wait...

Hope everyone has a lovely (and peaceful) rest of their day!


  1. I've been having brain overload too. Maybe it's the time of year. A little crochet calms the brain, I find.

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one ;) I wish I could crochet all day - it's uber therapeutic for me!
