I went to work I late and left early. I started knitting a hat for my son (or my daughter, if she gives my son's hat back to him). I sewed a little linen bag to hold sausages and made a drawstring for it - I'm quite pleased with the pattern of the braid in thee drawstring. I hemmed my friend's dress. The crafting is balm for my soul.

So is the visiting. I had a three hour drive with [livejournal.com profile] pink_lady2, and then hours of chatting with friends at the house where I'm staying. Tomorrow we'll get up early and drive to another town to meet more friends, do more crafting, and talk about crafting and history. Then we'll drive home; hopefully without the thick fog that dogged us for much of today.

There aren't many better ways to spend a weekend.

It was exhausting, but worth it.

Far more often than it used to be when I was younger. I miss being able to bounce back.

Isn't that the truth? There are times when I wonder how I survived my forties at all.

Nice!   I have friends that are crafter and they will agree how good it is for the soul!   I think that's why coloring books for adults are so popular now.   For me it's cooking which I guess is another form of crafting.

Cooking is the part that is more introverted - the crafting gets me out and being a little more social. Mind you, I gave someone some of my home-made cold-smoked sausages Saturday, so that managed to combine both.

Yep - couldn't do it often, but it was a nice change.

It was nice, though very tiring.
