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.
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.
last two weeks have been very busy, and I feel pretty exhausted.
There's been a lot of non-yarny-related things to do (next to daily
life as well as job), all rather time-consuming as well as stressful,
unexpected and demanding.
instead of recording my second podcast, as I intended to do, I've
just prescribed myself a weekend of snug and quiet retreat into the
studio. A weekend with some candles, lots of tea, some appeasing
music, some mindless crochet, the odd stitch marker or even another
project bag and maybe I'll finally feel up to tackling the commission
I've been given a while back.
