Happy Friday everyone!
Again I find myself wishing that your week has been far better than mine! After the hideous flu bug of last week, this week it's a broken boiler meaning goodness knows how long without heating or hot water. It seems life has a wee bit of shit to throw my way right now, not as much shit as this lady is having to deal with this week
, but still - ugh!
So while everything else is going totally cattywampus I am retreating into my studio to play amongst my pretty yarns! I must admit that over the last few weeks the crochet hasn't been going well at all, too many distractions I think. The aforesaid nonsense combined with too may ideas and too many possibilities all juggling around in my grey matter vying for attention. When my mind is racing from one thought to another every few seconds it's difficult to slow it down to focus on what I have in my hands at that moment. Even though I know what I want to do with it my motivation and energy is being sucked up by all these thoughts.
I have achieved one or two things this week so it does feel like thing's might be coming into focus just a wee bit. A few garlands and pincushions have been finished and added to my Etsy shop
and Folksy shop
shelves, so that's a wee tick off the epic to do list. Phew! I also have a lovely custom mobile project that needs to be completed over the weekend which I'm hoping will help me to focus even more. I so need to get back into a rhythm of being less distracted and to do that I need to do more and think a little less. It's time to stop pondering all the possibilities and remind myself of the fun of just making.
