As you know, I haven’t been doing much on the blog anymore. It’s been in the process of fizzling out, as I suppose I’m not posting things which are of interest. This little blog took a turn, somewhere along the journey, in quite a different and less satisfying direction than I anticipated. And before I knew it the incentive and motivation for it all diminished.
Jesus was right in saying one cannot serve two masters. My job robs all of my energy, and on my days off I find myself trying to recuperate in order to start all over, for little pay, constantly cut hours, and no creative satisfaction. My talents and ergo me are decaying there.
So until I get back and on course, I’ve decided to let the blog continue to fizzle out. I’ll start fresh when something really wonderful comes my way. That’s right…comes my way. Chasing after things gets one off course, and uses up a lot of energy best spent on other things. If what I do is really worth while then the right doors will open, and the scale of weighted appreciation will tip in my favor.
That being said, to keep my mind off of desperate thinking (“What am I going to do? What am I going to do?), I’ve been creating with the needle once again. The photos here represent some of the projects I’ve been working on .
Lovely crocheted doilies for my sister.
She loves the color purple in all of its shades.
And in all shapes and styles, as in this crocheted bracelet.
When I shared a photo of my sister’s bracelet with a friend, she ordered two for her granddaughters.
Then three more orders…one for my co-worker and friend’s, granddaughter;
and two for co-workers, in Teal. I’m only showing one here for space saving, because the other is similar in style, but a few of the beads are different in color.
And using the mini potholder knitted pattern I recently posted, I made 6 double-stranded cotton coasters for a male coworker. He specifically wanted black and white.
All in all these have been quite busy, yet creatively happy days off. I am looking forward to the day I can accomplish all of my creative ideas every day, in a more balanced and appreciated atmosphere.
Well, I hope you enjoyed these, and they’ve inspired you. Thank you for stopping by Leisure Lane.
