It's funny how a short work week always ends up feeling more packed than the five day routine. Yesterday I felt rushed all day. But after dinner, I was able to pick up my needle and thread for a bit of hand work and I felt so much more relaxed. I am loving how this next border for my basket quilt is coming along. And while I have fallen behind in my circle stitching, I do have a little stack all ready to go. I have reached a point in my knitting where the process takes a bit less brain power so that is fun. I even found a beautiful print to make a new tunic to wear with the vest.
The things that bring me joy take time. But I found myself getting swallowed up in the busy-ness that chips away precious minutes from my day. So I am looking to what can go. Because these things, my knitting and quilting, reading and running, writing and blog posting, they need to be here.
