On calendar Autumn is fast approaching, but here in Southern California, summer is getting its second wind. As I write this on Tuesday, we're under another extreme heat advisory. Three days in a row now with it being at least one hundred and six degrees Fahrenheit in Anaheim. So of course the weather has me considering all the afghans I should crochet before winter.
This is the time of year I always get ready for a reboot. My attitude becomes more attune with the change of season. Fall back, breathe in. And once the weather cools down, my productivity will go up. In anticipation, earlier in the summer I took stock of the stack of projects I started that never got off the ground. One was a cry for help. A couple were unraveled. A few became more appealing with time. Some are still up in the air.
Still a go on the All Wrapped Up granny square afghan!
I have a renewed motivation to create things again. I loved making afghans — and I was all hyped on learning to quilt — but when the pain became so debilitating, I lost interest. But now I think of all their new purposes — pizza picnics at the park, building forts with our future grandkids, a warm welcome for overnight guests — and it makes me excited to have a home filled with these handmade heirlooms!
