I don’t know when it started. Sometime after leaving Turkey and before Hollis was born I think. I’d have to look through the blog to know for sure. It feels like it’s been a long time anyway. What I’m trying to say is…it’s back!!! I think I can finally say that my desire to make and create is back. Yay! It’s so strange how my mind let this part of me go. And then, out of the blue it’s back again. Not the same as it used to be, but back none the less.
In its absence I learned a lot about what I was spending my time on and how it affects my family, my marriage, my friendships and my own personal growth.
With this desire to create back in my life, I find my self treading carefully and for now am trying to keep things simple and use up materials I have.
So… Along with my ongoing quilting project I have been crocheting some stones.
My goal is to have a few projects going at the same time. Ones that I can have ready and available to pick up and get to work where I left off. My quilting stuff is organized on a table in the basement and these crochet stones have been in a baggie in my purse. I love this new way of thinking. No longer am I in a hurry to get projects done and I am finding myself enjoying the process of making so much more.
