And for some reflectionsSewing is a massive stress relief for me but I think perhaps it has got a little out of hand. If I am not sewing I am thinking about sewing, reading blogs about sewing, planning my next sewing project or talking about sewing. Avoiding real life perhaps??? In between I attempt to do everything else required of me as a wife and mother etc etc. I promised my children that I was not going to sew for a whole week (arrgghhh) and my 6 year old danced for joy. Oh dear, a bit of a sign, that. Also she has been saying "you love sewing more than me" more than once over the past few weeks. That's not a sign, that's mummy being hit over the head with a sledge hammer. Balance is needed. I sewed a circle skirt and a sleeveless jasmine blouse this week so that will be my last project for a couple of weeks. I will be attending to some health issues and striving for better balance between the emotional, physical, creative and spiritual. Its a juggling act, isn't it!
So that is me being rather pensive and reflective on this day only a couple of days away from the end of the year. I'll be 43 in March next year and it will be my 15th wedding anniversary in August 2013. For some reason both those numbers seem significant to me. Life is rushing onward at great speed, I can hardly believe it.
