It’s been over a month since I last sat down with a huge of mug of tea and wrote a decent blog post. A lot has gone on over the last month from a special family wedding to a long, overdue holiday. And as mentioned in my posts from late July and early August, I’ve been in a bit of a funny place when it came to my motivation and inspiration to stitch, which meant blogging wasn’t so easy for me.
I have to be honest it still isn’t. Can’t tell you how many attempts it’s taken this morning to write this post. I realised whilst I was away, doing absolutely nothing for over 8 days, that it’s time I focused on what makes me happy and to go easy on myself. So if one week I can’t write a full post then I’ll just share a picture with you, and if I want to share a pattern with you…then it will be no more building up to it or scheduling it as a fixed date. I’ll do it when I am ready. Sure I work well with deadlines but I have plenty of those at work, so I think I can cut myself a little bit of slack when I am at home.
Because everything I stitch, design or make, I do it because I love it not because I hope to garner fame and money (though the latter would be nice to feed my addiction to quilting fabric..) which is probably why I will never earn oodles though my online shop, and you know what I don’t mind. Really, don’t mind.
Yeah, I know something I should have perhaps realised many moons ago, but it does take having a proper time out to make you have that moment of clarity.
So folks, I am back and I am starting to feel that I am in a good place again. I have lots to share with you over the coming weeks and months, so I hope you will enjoy my somewhat meandering path.
