The weeks right now are kind of blurring together. Looking at houses for sale online, visiting some open houses (of houses for sale) and having a realtor here to do a market analysis... my mind has definitely been in the clouds of house hunting.
The market is insane at the moment. Houses sell fast - within days and sometimes hours of being put on the market. Occasionally a house will show up on Realtor.com and within minutes "pending" is posted on the listing. Other houses linger for a day or two.
Fortunately, we're in a good spot. We don't have to move, but mentally we're getting ourselves ready for it - and our house too.
At the moment, I'm finding crafting to be kind of like busy work and I tend to avoid it, but somehow this past week crochet thread made its way into my fingers and I started crocheting more doilies from the book 99 Little Doilies by Patricia Kristoffersen.
First was Doily #10 that I learned is called Vanity Fair elsewhere:
And then I crocheted Doily #10:
At this point, I started to make an official note that I've completed this doily and I found out I had made it before. In the same color, no less!
To get over it, I decided to throw myself into yet another little doily, and that's when I produced the illustrious #83:
This sweet thing is 4 inches across!
I'm running out of clever names, 'cuz for some reason
Petticoat Junction came to mind on this one.
And that's all I've got for this YOP post.
If you're interested in my decluttering journey, check in later in the week. I'm continuing to make progress toward getting rid of 1,000 things. Honestly, I think I'll be getting rid of lots more than that, but 1,000 things has a nice ring to it, don't you think?
