Singing the blues....

Does anyone else get blue this time of year? 

Does anyone use one of the lamps to help you get a bit more "daylight" to help your mood? If so....do you find it helps???

This hits me every year in February...I almost thought I was getting away with not getting the blues this year, but last week it hit me hard. The only consolation...Spring will be here soon and the days are certainly getting a little longer.

Something cheerful?...I actually finished my One Monthly Goal for this month!

My goal was to have all the blocks completed for my Farm Girl Vintage....and here they are...


It's almost unbelievable to me that I have the blocks done...this has been an ongoing UFO for a couple of years now....not that that's too unusual, right?? lol

A note to myself...When I begin Farm Girl Vintage 2 I think I'll stick to muslin or a pale solid as a background. I'm wondering if the background in this version is a little busy????


Another "cheerful"...an impulse buy of this knitting book, which showcases the knitting style of  knitters from Newfoundland....


I'm determined that'll be the end of impulse-buying for a while! 

So sorry to be such a debby-downer....maybe a little extra stitching today will help :)

I am linking up with Elm Street Quilts for One Monthly Goal - February

  3. Thanks for your honesty - you are not alone. The blues usually hit me right after Christmas. I know it's likely so I cut myself some slack in January. And yes, the daylight lamps work according to a friend who lives in Oregon. I like your background fabric, it looks perfect.

  4. Your quilt is so cheerful, and I don't think that the background is too busy; just fun! I hope that you'll be back to your happy self again soon. Spring is coming! I'm suffering from Spring allergies, so I'm not really myself either.
