Vintage sheet destash!



Today I've been busy listing some of my vintage sheets in my Etsy Shop. For the last few days I've been sorting, organising, boxing, folding and throwing a lot in my studio. I'm having a bit of a studio detox and although I LOVE VINTAGE SHEETS, I have way too much of it.  So this is a bit of a destash moment.

Welcome to browse My Rose Valley's ETSY. Pick 1, pick 2. Pick 3 or pick 4. Or why not pick 5 and pay for 4. Or pick even more!!! Take your chance. These FQ's are going quick. When these lovelies are gone there is no more... Do you want a larger cut than a FQ let me know. I have big cuts too.

Scrappy Happy 80


TV crochet of the best kind. Making circles in faded colors. My yarn scraps are slowly vanishing into rows of multicolored circles which is very satisfying. That was the reason behind this project. To dig into my stash of wool and acrylics... It is waaaaay to big. I think a stripy blanket would have made more of a dent quicker in my stash, but I am so in love with this motions and enjoying every moment of it.

It looks like I have a great love of blues and pinks, need to add some more yellows and browns. Emmy Bo adds a circle or two every now and then but mostly it is my hands working on this project. Now I have 80. I think I need 80 more.

I'm still pondering what to do when turning these lovelies into squares. I'm thinking one row of white followed by denim blue. Or earthy brown. Or lightest shade of grey.

Back in the "box" (and a recipe)

Today was the day for a great Come Back. I went back to the gym. On scary feet I entered my "box" after almost 6 months of absence. Anyone who knows about CrossFit knows how intimidating it can be to enter a "box". And after being away so long I was even more nervous...

It was GREAT! What a wonderful welcome I got from training partners and instructors. Hugs and kisses and special mentioning.
"- And today, as you can all see - Anette is BACK!"
Feel the pressure. ;) One has to stand up to all that recognition but I went slow. No weights, no pushing. Just moving and doing. After 1 hours worth of CrossFit exercise I was shot! But I did row 1500 m, I did do 90 situps, 60 squats and 15 push ups, and that - my friends - will for sure wake up my limbs and muscles. I'm proud and I feel great. Tomorrow I will probably not even be able to walk but it will be a "good" pain. A proud pain. And when you are so out of shape it feels so hard but I will pick it up fairly quick I'm sure. I can't wait to get back. It is time to build those muscles and get back in shape again. Happy Friday everyone. This is the first day of the rest of my life and I am celebrating with a yummy avocado and shrimp salad for lunch.
