Today I had the day off from work. It felt great to sleep in and leisurely wake up.
I started out with a gluten free dairy free and soy free breakfast.
Stockinette stitch headband
I began a few rows of a headband. Using stockinette stitch.
Gluten free breakfast
Fried egg, on toasted gluten free bagel with avocado and tomato on the side. Top off with everything bagel seasoning.
In my studio
Then I went to my studio and used watercolor and started a new acrylic painting.
Then I are lunch which was not tasty.
Winter birds cross stitch
Then I started a cross stitch of winter birds.
Evening with stockinette stitch headband
And I’ll end the night laying down with a weighted blanket and might stitch a few more rows of the stockinette stitch headband.
Why so many little things today? Because I want to do it all and haven’t been making art in over a month. I’m trying to get my creative intuition back!

I added more knit headbands to my Etsy shop.
I have been stitching on Derby cross stitch. I am almost ready to start the final page to complete it!
My goal is to keep knitting and cross stitching. The main goal is to continue the cross stitch and finish by the end of the year.
Some days I prefer to knit instead of painting. This little piece will be a headband. It will be on Etsy once I am ready to post more products.
The piece below is slowly being stitched. It’s going to be an oversized scarf/shawl. This will not be sold. I need a new shawl for my office as it gets cold. I better get this stitched asap, in the Midwest it’s starting to show signs of Autumn.
Check out Etsy shop, I have knitted headbands/ ear warmers, and scarfs for sale.

The past week has been one of those weeks where energy was low and the mind wanted to do other things.
Yesterday I started to clean my bedroom. Tonight I might go through my dresser drawers and closet.
Earlier in the week I finished the stockinette stitch headband. I’m thinking about making a scarf or fingerless gloves to match.
Here’s the headband. It will eventually be for sale on Etsy. I have other headbands and scarfs for sale on Etsy.
Over the past few days my front door was painted. This morning I put the final touch on it. I used Hint of Cherry by Sherwin Williams.
Today, I just didn’t know what to do. Cross stitching seemed to be the decision. Painting just wasn’t an interest.
Here’s the update on the cross stitch.
Below is the close up to the details. Tons of colors. I stitched for about 6 hours today.
Later tonight I’ll be reading more from The Creative Cure by Jacob Nordby. I also started reading from my Bible and following a Bible study.
