Contemplation and Craftiness.

image

I found myself catching a thought about this blog and how I’ve not added to it for some time. I was even contemplating closing it down.

I figured a few less things to do and worry about would be good for my soul. While I think the thinking is correct, surely removing this blog is not one of the right things to remove.

If I recall the reasons I started writing back in 2011 and the happiness it brought me over the following months, why then does it make sense to delete this little corner of the interwebs? What about the smiles it brought to those who read it, and according to my stats, still are reading it??

IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE.

Phew, I’m glad I got that sorted out.

I’m not sure when my next creative foray will come to be published here, time is fickle and energy sporadic.

I feel the need to return to the notion that my sewing and creative time is above all else, happy and relaxed therapy time. Not mending time, not favour time, not client time, not business development time.

Just ordinary, unobstructed creative free time so I can revive myself and get clarity for living the rest of my life. It’s not a luxury for me, it’s vital to remaining balanced in this crazy money-hungry middle-class.

So bring on the ‘Selfish Seamstress.’ That girl is onto something!
