There is life. And there are often times when it remains simply about keeping ones' head above water. Times when the extent of "handmade" includes getting dinner on the table. Times when it has to be enough to fall into bed remembering all that has been done and not what didn't.
In an attempt to keep things light and pretty in this space I feel that maybe sometimes this crucial piece of information gets missed. The pursuit of handmade is a choice that comes hand in hand with my choice to try and live a life subject to what is important to me. This step, that of taking time to think and then create allows for a thought process that helps me remain on this path. It's not that I don't I get waylaid.
As I mentioned in my last post, this Summer the garden has been the centre of my handmade focus. And it started in Spring with a fence.
I am very happy with this fence. Of the postholes I dug. And set posts in. And backfilled. Many times over. The wood gleaned from our property...some of it from old falling down fencing, some freshly cut a stones throw away. I am sure there will be a time in the future when the fence just is and always has been, but for now it is reminder of time spent and grounds me to this place. The creation of gates lives on the list for next year.
There is also now at least a small chunk of each day dedicated to LittleWool. With the impending arrival of my busy season I am attempting to be ahead of the game....even if only for a little while.
Wishing you a wonderful day and weekend ahead.
