It's been rather a stressful week. My old cat isn't doing too well and we know she doesn't have a lot of time left. She is happy at the moment, but her old body is starting to fail. I'm just thankful for every day I have with her. Work has been disappointing this week too, as a lot of my sessions were cancelled. This was likely due to the long weekend, but it means my pay was cut in half.
So what's a girl to do when she is feeling down and has no money? Make a skirt out of a bedsheet apparently. I had a worn-out bedsheet my parents gave me when they were cleaning out the linen cupboard. It looks vintage and is the perfect spring mix of cheery yellows and oranges. I decided to make a circle skirt out of the material. Sum total for this project? $1 for elastic. Yup, new skirt for $1 and 30 minutes of my time!
I don't have much to wear with it at the moment, but I paired it with a white cardigan and some red/plum accessories for my weekly knitting morning. I put a flower in my hair, since hair flowers always lift my mood.
Little treats like this skirt, and coffee with a friend, really help during times like these. A cute outfit doesn't make the problems go away, but it does work to even things out a bit.
I'm looking forward to the long weekend. Britt and I have a hike planned for tomorrow. We have a looooooongg hike planned in about 2 months, so this is a smaller "training" hike. I love spending time in nature and getting some exercise at the same time. Much better than going to a gym.
I hope everyone has a lovely Easter weekend!
