This last week has been just as hectic as the week before – if not more so. I did not manage to blog at all which, as many of you will know is very unusual for me. The good news is that my Mum is well on the mend and my parent’s now only own one house. The house that they do own is not exactly finished so Mum is still with us but all their belongings are now in one place, albeit in boxes.
My crafting has also taken a bit of a dive in productivity. It occurred to me today that, when I most need crafting it is the thing that I get around to doing last. To be honest, this weekend I have ‘crashed’ a bit, both mentally and physically. Not surprising really but instead of taking some time out to crochet and make jewellery I have done everything but…..cleaning, sorting and such. Madness. It is distraction techniques in reverse, doing everything except the one thing that will help me feel better. Does anyone else notice themselves doing this?
I do have one, almost finished object to show you:
As the weather is definitely changing in this part of the world, and getting colder and colder I really need to get the other one finished. I hate having cold feet and these are lovely and cozy (or will be if I ever get around to finishing them).
I am sure that my life is about to calm down a bit so normal blogging will be able to resume, both reading and writing. Meanwhile – the one thing that I have to take away from this week is:

This has to be a priority in my life from now on – I just need to try to remember it!
In order to get some inspiration I am going to pop over to Handmade Harbour to see what everyone else has been up to this week – do pop over too.
