Greetings my friends! I hope this finds you all well. I am in the middle of taking a vacation from my "real" job and focusing on some crocheating. Things have been hectic at the day job - and probably will continue to get even more so - and the opportunity arose that I could do something that I don't usually do...take a week vacation.
My goal in this vacation is to get some quality crochet done. Well, like they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. So, while my goal has been to get in some good crochet, I've more been waylaid with after effects of my chronic illness so I've spent most of the time sleeping. Sleeping is good, but that wasn't my goal.
It has been nice to know that if I have progress going on a project that I am able to keep going - that I don't have to force myself to stop at a particular time because I have to get up in the morning. Of course, I think that also has led to some other issues because I think I am starting to get my days and nights messed up. I've always thought I could be part vampire, because my natural biorhythms are to sleep during the day and be up at night. I like the night. It is quiet. It is peaceful. However, I also know that is not the way the real world works, and I am going to have to start getting back to the normal way of things soon or else it is going to be really tough come Monday morning.
One of the crochet goals that I have been able to accomplish during my time off is that I have been able to complete an original Pooh-crew set: Pooh bear, Eeyore, Tigger, and Piglet. I have made each of these little ones separately, but I have never had the opportunity to make them all at the same time. I was glad that I had this extra time so that I could get these completed for a custom order. So while I may not have been able to get everything done that I wanted to, I've at least been able to make some progress.
I always try to keep that in mind. It is something that I teach to my daughter. It doesn't matter how much you actually get done, as long as you do your best and you are a little better at what you are doing today than you were the day before. It is ironic for as much as I try to instill that into my daughter so she isn't so hard on herself, it is much different for me to live by example and know that for myself. I'm getting better. And, I'm trying to teach myself those lessons while I am on my crochetcation.
I have been keeping up with my Luvvie creations on Instagram during this vacation: If you would like to see the most up-to-date pictures please check out @lilluvvies.
I hope this finds all well with you and that everyone is safe and happy.
Hugs and cuddles,
