A Standstill - Stillstand








Dear friends,


January 2019 is getting me nowhere.

The hubby still not being at his best, I‘ve been pretty much absent from blogging, social media postings etc. His surgery isn‘t until the 23rd and things won‘t be back to normal for the first few weeks afterwards either, so this standstill will last a bit longer still…

Happy New Year




Dear friends,

even though the end of December wasn‘t all that brilliant, 2018 hasn‘t been a bad year. It did mean lots of changes to me, especially concerning day job, which is now taking up more space and time than it did this time last year, but otherwise: I started dying wool, finished a few crochet garments, ran the Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party, designed a handful of patterns, discovered the joy of making stitch markers, met a lot of people over the internet…

Bohemian Rhapsody* Placemats



Dear friends,


oh dear! Nearly a month has gone by without a blogpost other than the one of the Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party… This actually shocks me, as I never intended on letting day job taking over my life this drastically, but it did somehow.
  
True, we had two busy weekends in between. On the first weekend of August the hubby and I took the weekend off. Margit Hoffmann of Alte Künste had a summer get-together at her place in Rheinland-Pfalz and we took the opportunity to have some quality time together.

Bohemian Rhapsody* Bag




Dear friends,


last week George (my new laptop) moved in with us. We still have to get used to one-another and he still has to learn a few things (especially programmes - one of the reasons it took me ages to edit this post), but we’ll manage, eventually…

Bohemian Rhapsody...*


Dear friends,


I honestly thought I wouldn't get round to writing a blogpost this weekend (either), though it was scheduled (along with quite a few other things, but...)! 
 
A few weeks ago my laptop suddenly slowed down drastically. I thought it was due to the amount of data on it, and I did think it might be a good idea to transfer some of it onto an external hard disk drive, but...

Pause for Thought* – Eine Denkpause



Dear friends,


once more I'm taking part in a Makelight course by Emily Quinton. This one is : “Pause for Thought”. Comes in pretty much at the right time, as I do have the feeling I'm getting nowhere and I haven't achieved anything in 2018 so far.

Episode one already showed me, that I'm absolutely wrong. True there are a few things that didn't work out as well as I hoped they would (need I mention pattern-writing..?), but others did. Isn't it amazing how much we concentrate on all what's negative in our lives? Why cannot we see things more positively? I'm not talking about taking things lightly, I'm talking about looking on the bright side of life instead!

Sunshiny Day Pullover

 


Dear friends,


I'm not making much progress, not getting much done, when it comes to crochet lately. Don't ask me why, I cannot tell. True I'm working out a way of making pretty project bags with cross stitch quotes on them, true I'm taking part in #MarchMeetTheMaker on Instagram, but... I simply do not know.

Make Light - Erleuchtung




Dear friends,


I've been taking part in the social media spring clean, a free course by Emily Quinton of Makelight. If you frequent Instagram regularly you'll have noticed those Year of Colour pictures popping up at the end of 2017. I had one made too and not recognizing myself in that colour palette I visited Emily's site - and that's been one of the best impulses I had these last weeks.


  
The spring clean course didn't just alter my perspective on social media, which I found very demanding as well as overwhelming at times, it also gave me a little nudge on how to manage things as well as a boost on getting on.
