So, in the helter-skelter of getting the Summer Issue ready, I ended up doing a LOT of crocheting at the last minute. As I was doing that, something interesting happened – I started to have fun. It was like something lost coming back to me. I can’t tell you how long it’s been since I’ve crocheted just for the fun of it, instead of because I was anxious, or I had a deadline, or someone was having a birthday, or a baby, or to solve a problem. It feels like it’s been a really long time. After I got Crochetvolution published, I blinked, looked around, and said to myself, “You know what? That was fun. I want to do that some more.”
I’m doing a large thread project – which sounds totally restful, I know, haha – but the stitching is simple and the fabric is lovely and I’m finding it deeply satisfying. It should take me a while to finish, too, but that’s just part of the fun. I’m ready for a little peace and predictability.
So while I was serenely crocheting away, I remembered something I did last year about this time…
and I thought, you know what? I think I’ll do that again. Not because I have to, but because I think it will be fun. Hooray for fun! And calm. And routines. And peaceful predictability. If you’ve forgotten (or haven’t seen it before) be sure to click on the “May is for Moms” logo to check out the wrap up from last year.
Meanwhile, I have some boring routines to establish. 😀
