Creating every day is easy because it’s a key part of who I am, even if I’m not feeling well. On the 13th I felt really sick to stomach. One thought that ran through my mind was that if I had to go to the hospital, how would I let my husband know which knitting projects to bring to me? What would I enjoy working on during my stay?
Thankfully, I had some kind of crazy flu bug; I retreated to what I’m now calling the yarn lounge. I read watched movies and did a bit of knitting between naps throughout the weekend. I couldn’t get off the couch and into the glass studio until Monday. My body was telling me to slow down and rest so that’s just what I did.
Since I’ve been moving between glass and knitting, I’ve decided to change the structure of my blog posts for the 365 Days of Creativity project into three parts:
- Glass Studio Work
- Yarn Lounge
- Creative Spark
Take a look at what’s been happening between the 10th and the 16th
Glass Studio Work
I set up some dichroic slabs and dishes.
I fired bases for wall hangings.
I put this new “corgi approved” sweater together.
I made progress on this Faroese Shawl
I continued to work on this Hitchhiker scarf for my daughter.
I joined a hitchhiker scarf knitting circle and started 2 new scarves.
Never underestimate the power of a good nap.
