Well, hello on a rather damp English afternoon. I’ve been very quiet on the blog front, with all that has been going on…the largest part of which is our impending house move. Last year our long term plans were brought into view with alarming and miraculous speed, and as always, once you set upon a path the universe cannot help but help. So here we are, the house prepped and preened, car accident notwithstanding, and we’veto some lovely people. The right people; because instinct, and karma, right? House selling takes a lot of energy. But we’re getting there, it’s like a roller coaster. Slow, slow, slow, pause….wild rush of activity. Repeat.
Right now we’re waiting, waiting, waiting. You can’t push the river, so while we wait we practice tai chi (it’s World Tai Chi Day tomorrow, so if you’ve always wanted to have a go, look up your local event) and aikido, and swim and larp and read and work and listen to Ted Talks and spend time with our friends and of course…Make Stuff. I’m keen to complete as many UFOs (UnFinished Objects) as possible instead of boxing them. New house, new fabric, right 🙂
I finally completed the XL corset. Hoorah.
The embroidered book bags.
The long-sleeved experiment.
The short-sleeved experiment.
The toy mouse.
There’s another half dozen UFOs on the horizon, but it’s cathartic ticking them off the list. Softly, slowly, we will get where we want to be.
And my favourite quote from Samuel Johnson right now, as I am being trained by time to be gentle and patient?
“All severity that does not tend to increase good, or prevent evil, is idle.”
Tranquility be yours.
Until next time!
