This week has been more in balance. I’ve balanced working and creating much more efficiently. The end result is that I was more focused on everything I did, so I hit my work deadlines.
Creatively, I finished the pompom cowls for both daughters. (Instructions here.)
I started cutting out and sewing up my star quilt. The bulk of progress was at the weekend. I’ve been cutting out more diamonds in the evenings, ready to sew a few more stars this weekend. It was lovely having the company of one of my daughters, as she sewed up her quilt top too.
We also made story telling machines. To celebrate the change of the season. (if you’d like to make one, I’ve written up the steps here. Includes a short video to show how they work.)
I even managed to write blog posts for practically every day this week.
In the background, I have been working too. Ticking off so many tasks. I feel I have got the balance right. In fact the more creative I am, the more I achieve in work. Work and play are so closely tied, it appears.
All I need now is to balance the housework a bit more convincingly, with the rest of it. I also have to find time (and inclination) to start putting seeds in pots, some admin, sorting……
Sigh. Maybe next week. One step at a time, I think.
