I normally craft as fast as possible and with a deadline, I am very good at it. I have been really enjoying spinning, to the point of not working on other things that have deadlines in order to spin, but when someone asks what the yarn I am making is for I feel a little panicky. FOR? um it is not FOR anything, I made it.
I was just working on the 1840 dress for Badger, I estimated to have it finished in two days tops. I noticed the
instructions were 'out of order' and overly complicated and started to
look for why they were building the dress in this manner. I was stunned
by the simplicity of the final product and the benefit to the dress all
the "wasted extra steps" add. I started to understitch the back and was
suddenly filled with the calm that spinning brings to me.
I hope you work on something today that brings you piece and calm. ~ Julia (Joy too!)
