This needlecraft thing is so new to me that it has become a whole new adventure. I’m discovering so many new projects I want to do but my skills are still in a serious primary stage. A personality trait I did not know I had (or did not want to know) has come to the surface … greed.
It is important for me to be careful now because I see lovely things I want to buy like fabric, patterns, beads and charms… and so on. I just keep saying to myself… thankfully I am still in control… ~smile~.
Anyway I have not finished Bommel Lighthouse collector yet, thanks to my limited experience I stitched the lighthouse and discovered that I forgot to add the windows… meaning I have to start over :(
It was a happy surprise the postman delivered today as it reminded me of our coming holiday to Italy we planned a couple of months ago.
Most of all I look forward to be able to spend more time with my hubby without work interruptions. He can finally enjoy a well deserved break from a busy stressful time working from home. Hopefully he can unwind (he’s a true workaholic), read his books, walk in the beautiful nature, relax and just enjoy life.
I will be participating in a workshop (in Dutch) about ‘Silence’ and received a book to read and to prepare for the week. The book “De Grote Stilte” (The big silence) – published by the university in Nijmegen – is about the meaning of silence in our personal life, society and our culture. Reading this will definately bring me back to planet earth again!
Note to self: Cut down on the chocolate in case you have to wear a bathing suit.
