Life has got very unbalanced for me over the last couple of years. I am lucky to have a great job that I enjoy, but it is demanding and I have been giving it too much of myself. This has not been good for me and so I am taking action to rebalance myself and my life. Having reduced the hours that I work, I’m using this extra space and time to take a step back, remind myself what really matters to me and start to do more in those areas that have become neglected.
One of the big areas of neglect is my creative life, of which this blog used to play a large part. Which is not to say that I haven’t been making stuff – I have! I’ve been knitting, have finished my first quilt and started another, and have re-started dressmaking. I have also been writing up knitting patterns for things I designed in the past and for new things that I’m in the process of designing and making. We are also about to ‘de-modernise’ our house, taking it back to the 1920s when it was built. I’ve been doing a huge amount of research to design and plan this refurbishment and am keen to share these ideas and show how we get on.
Indeed, photographing and sharing all of these things is something that I enjoy hugely and have missed. So, here I am, back again. I’ve got lots and lots of things I’ve made that I can’t wait to show and share, and am excited about plans to shake things up here.
But for now, Hello (again)! Oh, and if you’d like to keep reading, click the link to follow my blog with Bloglovin.
