Beauty for the eyes and lots of inspiring ideas: Follow me on Pinterest!
For the ears - listening to lovely music. My current favorites are Christmas music and always worship music.
Make something lovely! I've admired all the fun ruffly scarves all over the web and I read several tutorials, but ended up making this up as I went along.
David donated the black t-shirt and I had a very loved grey t-shirt that I've been wearing since before I got married and that had tons of holes in it which made a perfect scarf!
All I did was cut three bands off the bottom of a t-shirt and cut one edge to make it a long strip. I sewed these together to make one long strip. Then, I ran a basting stitch down the middle of the scarf and pulled to gather. I sewed twice over the basting stitch with a regular stitch to hold the gathers in place.
That's it - two cast off t-shirts and about 15 minutes a piece - and voila! I love them! Most of the tutorials on line use elastic thread which intrigues me, but I didn't want to spend anything and wasn't sure enough about how it would work in my machine.
Read something inspiring or relaxing. I've been reading lots of Karen Kingsbury lately!
Bake something lovely ~ anything with pumpkin is top on my list right now!
