Despite living in a part of the world that rarely sees snow (last reports of some snow falling was in 1956 but the fall was in the Perth Hills which would have been well and truly out of town back then) there seems to be a bit of a snowball effect happening in my creative space. A sick and grumpy family hasn’t helped matters much but it would be all too convenient to lay all blame on them. The truth, if there is such a thing, is that the things that I want to achieve greatly outweighs the number of available hours in the day. My creative space really needs to take stock and prioritise projects.
One project that will be given high priority is crocheting a blanket for my son. Since finishing my 10² granny blanket the crochet has taken a bit of back seat. I notice its absence – especially since I can now crochet a granny square on automatic pilot, the hands making the rhythmic motions whilst my mind adopts a meditative state.
… and so today I am going to take some time to plan a blanket using this wonderful book that I bought for myself as a birthday treat.
Do you have a favourite crochet block? Perhaps you don’t crochet but you have seen one that you like very much?
Best you be on your way to check out all the creativity that abounds on Thursdays at Kirsty’s place while I try to reduce the never-ending list of projects in my mind to my top four projects on paper. Sometime back in the day I determined that a list of things to do should never have more than four items. Do you have a numerical limit for projects on the go? What boundaries, if any, have you set yourself when it comes to the limitless creative opportunities?
Go on now - I’ll meet you there.
