1. What have been the doings/makings/scribbling's
at your desk/making table this week?
My "desk" these days is the patio table. This time of year I crave being outdoors in the light. You can find me most mornings knitting and taking photos. Some days you may find me next to my "desk" with my spinning wheel. I'm getting ready to warp my rigid heddle and start playing with that again. Passing the shuttle back and forth is so meditative. Especially outside. I occasionally draw although it's not one of my talents! This week has found me back at the dye pots.
2. Where are you currently finding
I have to say I look forward to Wednesdays for Yarn Along. I love looking at the different blogs to see how others are creating. Another source of inspiration are knitting podcasts. Especially the video ones. Ravelry is another source of inspiration but I have to be careful. I can spend as much time browsing instead of knitting. There is Pinterest as well, but I tend to stay off of that because I know that can really be a time sucker.
3. How important is being creative to you and
how do you blend this with your work- life-
My tattoo says it all. It's real important to me to be able to express myself in whatever medium is making me happy at the time. I always wonder what people who don't have hobbies do with their time? As far as balance I just make it a priority. I'm at the point in my life where my baby is grown up so I have more time to myself. I do work full time so I don't have as much time as I would like but I keep ME a priority. My house is sometimes chaotic and there might be dirty dishes in the sink but at the end of my life I want to be able to say that I did what made me happy. I don think anybody will give me an award for having an impeccable home. And I wouldn't want it that way.
And now it's my turn to tag my friends. So Carole and Lisa - you're on! I can't wait to see what you have to say.
