A New Addiction

My plan for our time at the cabin this weekend was to get my spring cleaning done. But I got busy trying my hand at ribbonwork and didn't get a darn bit of cleaning done.

Between my farsightedness, arthritis and carpel tunnel, doing this ribbonwork is a bit challenging.....but I'm having soooo much fun!!

It will definitely take some time before I'm good at it, but in the meantime, I'm really enjoying this new addiction.
