Did I tell you I had started bowling? Yes, I think I did! So Wednesday night I bowled for the second time on this league we've joined, and I had a great time! Everyone is very friendly, and one of the other nice perks? The bowling alley has some good beer on tap. Because beer and bowling just go together, right? I don't usually drink much . . . like hardly at all . . . but sometimes a quality beer is a nice treat.
Back in the day when Hubby and I were about half the age we are now, we bowled in a league, and my average was usually somewhere between 135 and 145. I've lost some of whatever I knew then, or perhaps it's because I was younger then, but now I'm holding pretty steady at right around 120. In fact, my three game scores last night were 120, 121, and 120. Consistent. Even after a beer!
When I haven't been busy bowling and drinking beer, I've done a little scrappy sewing. See?
I was struck by an idea a few weeks ago about something I wanted to do with a Schnibbles pattern and some scrappy green and white fabric. So I've had a pile of green fabric scraps sitting out on a counter in the Sweat Shop ever since, and I finally started stitching up half square triangles the other day. There's not much more to show just yet, but I hope to amaze and delight you soon. Or it will turn out to be an utter and complete failure--only time will tell.
I was talking with a friend the other day about all of the projects I have in the works or that I want to make and have gathered fabric for, and I realize I'm probably crazy because there's just not enough time to get everything done that I want to do. Ah, well, all we can do is try to enjoy the process and try to NOT stress when we aren't able to get more done. I guess if I wanted a FAST hobby, I should have picked drag racing.
