a change is as good as ...a ..something....

I find myself all alone today...apart from Arnie who is too busy snoring in his bed to notice me :) 
so I am trying to make a to do list which is as long as my ....well my yard stick at least... 
I feel a change coming ....not sure what yet... but something is afoot..( love that word!)

yesterday you could have found me in the local D I Y store with a pencil behind my ear again...a flowery tape measure and lots of saws and blades and tacks and pins...looking very much 'in the know' 
(not really but trying very hard!!) 
I am in my element in such another life I would have been a builder...I've already expressed my love of power tools on here but it got me in a bit of trouble so I won't say too much :)

maybe that's what the change is ....... I leave behind my life of vintage sheets and crochet .....and swap it for the world of steel toe boots and tool belts..... 
I like it ....
aah but then maybe not :)

Happy Saturday....

  1. Can't wait to see what you're up to Jane! I hear you with those alone-days, mine are often spent alone for up to 12 hours! Bleegh... I also make enormous lists, making sure to keep busy. I still want to re-start the crochet thing but is still too scary! :-)

  2. I am like you...I know when change is coming and can feel it in my is always such an exciting time for me even when I am not sure what it that change that feeling. Your work is to check out your shop once again...I think I really do visit it the most! Love your owl....LOVE IT...hugs to you and happy creating.xoxoxxo

  3. Afoot is a wonderful word - conjures images of all sorts of tomfoolery, skullduggery and possibility doesn't it? :-)

    I'm fairly keen on power tools!
