For so many of us who browse the web and search continually for new inspiration we end up with so many ideas, dreams and to do lists, that at times it gets overwhelming. As I sit at the computer today looking out at a gloomy day my mind is filled with the projects I want to start. Pieces of fabric piled, embroidery thread arranged, pictures printed out… which to pick first, what project do I have all the pieces for.. do i start more embroidery ( the blackwork forehead cloth will take time so I need a distraction), what pieces do I need to finish.
Last month was ” go through the fabric stash and thin out, wash, iron and refold ” month.. So now I just have to choose. Lets see, Bliaut, Cotehardie, new doublet and skirt, hat???? Or could it be a pouch, needle case, embroidered box???
As we fill our days with everyday things we should do, always remember filling our soul is just as important. Carving out bits of time to create, just create anything, will help feed our soul and create a calm space. In the next few days keep a look out for my new project choice and the beginning steps. And don’t forget to be inspired to create that small bit of time for ourselves.. Enjoy!!
