Why Cant us women have brains like men, think of one thing, put that one thing away and move on to the next, not us women, we think of 8000 things at once and forever dwell on the same things, even the things we can't change, or things that happen 20 years ago

Over the last year or 2 I have been dealing with some pretty major shit, within myself, I thought I knew what triggered it, but I am beginning to think that was not the case at all, I am now thinking this has been inside for many years, like 20 or more. I am working my way through it, I know it won't be easy, but I am sure hoping that when I come out the other side I will be fixed, (or healed as the pros say) and I am hoping I will be a better version of myself than I am now

Right now I am suffering from depression and very high anxiety, to the point where most days I don't even want to face the world, I want to hide in my room and sew or crochet, because those activities occupy my brain enough that it is tricked into thinking all is good. Don't get me wrong, I do question "what person alone needs 17 quilts" and "if said person has 17 quilts do they really need a crocheted afghan as well" the answer to both of those questions being "Yes, of course silly"

I am also finding that when I am away from my house, I am 'ok' 'normal' if you wish, but as soon as I turn off the grid road and head back into my yard I feel the massive weight coming back onto my shoulders.

Some days are better than others, some days I can smile and be 'normal' some days i can break into tears in a matter of moments.

I am changing things up of the blog here to be real, honest, maybe not always nice! But it will be me!!

Trail Tote

Boy I have realized, that my post titles are pretty boring
I'll need to fix that

After making my last purse and having a friend want it,
I picked a different purse pattern from Noodle Head Designs
the Trail Tote

This is my first zipper pocket, I am pretty impressed with how it turned out

I used it the next day on a trip to the city,
it was a bit small for my liking, I guess I will make the bigger option
and try again

A Cute little Clutch

In the spring my husband and I attend the 
Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation Convention
he attends meetings and I enjoy a few days holiday
doing NOTHING!!

There is a banquet each night
and I wanted to make a small clutch, 
something to carry my phone and lip balm

I found a pattern again from Anna at Noodle-Head
this is the Envelope Clutch



inside, with some wonderful card slots

Once I was finished, I thought the clutch was a little bigger than I had hoped for
so I altered the pattern a bit and made a smaller one

this one will be perfect!!

this is the 2 other together, for size comparison

A Yoga Bag

After seeing my daughters over night bag, my sister in law
asked for one to take to her yoga class

I used the Cargo Duffle pattern again
kept the original dimensions this time,
but added an adjustable shoulder strap and a key FOB inside 

I used a double ended zipper, for her to be able to carry her yoga mat

Thanks for stopping by
