Ready to be sewn together. :)

Ready to be sewn together. 🙂

Why do I do this to myself?!  Yesterday I was side tracked by figuring out numbers for retirement.  Hubby wants to retire soon, so I am crunching numbers to see how it will work.  Plus researching retirement options.  Spent most of yesterday afternoon on that.

In the evening I was on the phone.  We had a great time, so all is good.  I don’t do hand work in the evening anyway, due to the poor lighting in our house.  I really need to phone the Canadian distributor for Ott light bulbs and buy a replacement for my lamp.  I’m a bit nervous about a light bulb that expensive surviving the mail though! They are $65 each I’ve been told.

“The Bipolar Disorder Survival Guide” by Dr. David Miklowitz. Good reading for anyone, let alone bipolar people. Helps you understand them a bit better. At least so far it’s helped me.

I also spent considerable time reading a library book called “The Bipolar Disorder Survival Guide” by Dr. D. J. Miklowitz.  Bipolar disorder is in my extended family.  This appears to be a very good book that discusses not only bipolar, but illnesses that are close to it, and tells the reader how to determine the difference.  It also gives many case studies and real life examples, which are helpful in understanding the illness better.  There are also lots of quizzes to help a person determine where they stand.  I’ve only finished the first four chapters.  I am looking forward to reading this very worthwhile book.

Yesterday's sketchbook pages.

Yesterday’s sketchbook pages.  Still working on images from Craigdorrach Castle in Victoria, B.C.

In rug hooking yesterday:

  • I did manage to sketch for most of the morning,
  • block and press the hems in on the remaining Christmas ornaments, and
  • I prepared 4 more linings for them.

I need to prepare 8 more linings and sew them on. Today’s job, if I don’t get distracted, is to sew on the ribbon hangers and linings.

Eight more ready to add lining and hangers.
