Happy Wednesday! WOYWW

One of my blog pals does the WOYWW (What's on your work desk Wednesday!)  Her name is Patsy and her blog is Heartworks, she is very lovely and passionate. I am inspired by her blog and her happy heart.  If you get a chance, you would be blessed by visiting her.
The WOYWW is run by Julia, who's blog is Stamping Ground.  Also, another awesome blog you should check out and hop in and participate on Wednesdays.  She is very crafty and creative and always has fun posts that are inspiring.  (It's also nice to see I'm not the only one who's desk is constantly cluttered with projects.)
I took a picture of my desk and realized I still have a lot of unfinished projects.  (UFO's)  Some that have deadlines.  I really need to get these done.
I am working on a sketchbook project that has to be done by the end of this month and mailed on the 31st.  I got this sketchbook at the end of October and didn't take much time to draw in it.  I wasn't feeling as inspired as I thought I would. Now I'm down to the end of the wire and feeling a bit overwhelmed, but realizing I need to let go of myself and just enjoy the process.  I tend to have an idea in mind of what I "HAVE" to do, and really it's just me, who has those expectations on myself.  It's silly.  I'm I the only one who does this??
The painting on the right is for a friend who has asked me to do this for her.  I have struggled with it, because I again, have these expectations, instead of just letting go and freeing myself to do what I know I can.  
The picture of the girl with the wings, is a bit of a self portrait.  A struggle to believe I can fly, even though the wings are right there.  But I'm getting there.  :)  
I started this last night, because yes...I need another project.  :D 
A blog friend suggested I make a scarf using the colors of the sunrise in my last post.  Yesterday, I wasn't feeling well, so I sat on the couch and watched movies all day...knitting is therapy and so I went thru my stash of yarn and this is what I came  up with.  It's a bit groovy, but I'm liking it.  I think I will make a hat to go with it.  It's been awhile since I've made myself a hat and I do love making them.  Maybe even some fingerless gloves, we'll see how motivated I am.  :)  I still need to finish a couple of sweaters.  BAH!!  
Yesterday's sunrise! 
I'm going to bombard you with sunrise pictures...if you don't mind.  
My lovely husband took me out for a drive last week, at 6:30 am, so I could play with my camera and capture the sunrise.  I took about 50 or 
So, enjoy!!  The sun rises everyday and it's always a blessing!  

Have an amazing and joy filled week!
