Feeling like I’m on track with this project now after I had to frog it, split the wool top, then begin again.
Going free style with no pattern or video to watch! It’s fun to experiment and try new approaches (and yarn, never thought of using unspun wool before!)
Can’t wait to see the final product!
While the yarn called me and I jumped into starting a new project yesterday, today I realised that I needed to have split the unspun wool.
So I undid what I’d eagerly had crocheted, and then split the yarn. At least I hadn’t gotten too far into the new project! Sometimes I can be too enthusiastic.
It’s reminded me that all new projects have learning curves. And you just got to ride the curve.
Perfect day to start another project…
Not that I should start another one, I really should finish a half completed project…
but you know the yarn spoke to me and I answered!
A picture says a thousand words!
My mug of full
Bubs bottle is empty
But there’s so much more going on in this photo! You can write your own story with it.
With a dentist appointment scheduled this morning (2 fillings!) and bubs unsettled during my teeth check up the other week, I’ve decided to come early so I can get a coffee and settle him with a walk.
With a need to have some creative space I decided not to bring the writing I’m working on at the moment (I’m sleep deprived as well). But… after arriving an entire hour early (I’m in shock how I even managed to do that?!) I’m sitting in a cafe drumming my fingers not knowing what to do. Bubs is fighting sleep, but is at least content, and I the coffee has given me a clear head and I do actually want to write! All I have is a near new notebook, and no ideas. Just the desire to want to write! If only I bought along that novel I’m currently reading?! Which I had intended to do but after the third trip to pack the car this morning the thought of finding time to read seemed something so next year. Plus I don’t want to feel like I have to write every time I’m at a cafe. It’s almost be giving myself permission not to that I now want to!
This time is valuable, both thinking and chilling. At least I’ve used this time to ponder, and write this post. And I’d better finish up or before I know it I’ll be late!
The other day was my dad’s birthday, I have to think too much to work out how old he’d be, I do know more easily he’s been gone nearly 16years.
My poem, The Present was in the Mozzie, and was a lovely read when I opened my mail.
Caffeine to feed my body
Academic writing to feed my mind
Cafe with bub to feed my soul
This is more than a trip to a cafe for a coffee!
Hello big size coffee I missed you baby 😘😘😘😘😘😘😘
Being pregnant I couldn’t stomach much coffee so had to down size. I love my coffee and missed the joy of slowly drinking my flat white in cafes when writing. And now with bubs in the pram, I can return to old habits.
I’m in heaven 💕 and I’m sure the words will flow!
So much to write journal about… 💕 There’s been a lot of changes lately. It’s good to finally sit and journal.
And a walk is a good way to get baby sleeping!
The last few weeks have been full on, good, bad, and ugly. With one dog sick, a week later Bub is born, another week later my other dog is suddenly terminally ill and is now a star in the sky. I’ve not had time to write, journal or much else. But that’s life. And it’s a new flow that I’m having to adjust to. I wouldn’t have it any other way (though I wish Astro was still with me!)
There’s a few things I should not do…go to a Makers market… like I need another crocheting project… but look at that hand made crochet hook!!!!! And the yarn!!! 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕
I’m in love!
