How are you? All is well here..for the most part…ups and downs and new normals😆.
I’ve been knitting:
And I’ve been sewing a little:
But mostly this week I’ve been reading…
Writing doesn’t come naturally to me…essays don’t roll off my keyboard and I’ve always preferred numbers to letters!
There are many makers who I admire and whose writing has struck a chord with me, these posts are just two that I’d encourage you to read:
I’ve followed Dana at Yards of Happiness for a couple of years, she is a fantastic knitter and her use of colour is inspiring. I’ve noticed I knit more when I’m stressed, my worries are small in comparison to others, but knitting helps to distract …
Here Dana explains in her own words why she can’t just knit….
I like to hear about other peoples lives, and how creativity is a part of that life…it’s what drew me to following blogs, and creating my own. The Sewcialist blog shares stories from so many creative people, and this post from Jasika (you can find her blog at http://jasikanicole.com/try-curious-blog/ ) is a very thought provoking piece: https://thesewcialists.com/2017/12/15/my-crafting-like-my-feminism-is-intersectional/.
