…only a little bit. But I feel restless while at the same time not wanting to move. Wrapped up inside the house where I have a certain amount of control, why would I want to go out??
Mind you, unfortunately it doesn’t mean I’m doing anything useful. I could be cleaning the house, you know, changing guest sheets, smartening up the lounge, dusting the dressers, all the myriad domestic things that always need doing…but I’m not. I can’t work up the energy to try. There’s no room to spread things out to re-organise things into a better order and with the minimal amount of mental energy that I have, I’m not spending it on something that is only going to prove futile!
So instead, I do what I have to do and then bury myself in my craft where the goals are small, achievable and I understand their demands. And they only have to be done to my requirements. Not some unknown requirement that I never seem to understand or grasp.
I think that’s pretty good for a whole lot of yarn that I hadn’t the foggiest idea what to do with! Four of these have already been given to family members but the rest will be going to charity. I’ve already got another one on the needles and I’ve got about 3 more balls of this combined yarn to use up! Go me!!
And the Monty Python Cross Stitch continues on apace. I finished the first character on the third line. I think he’s some sorcerer or something.
And have just started the next one. I think she’s a hag or witch.
Not much of her yet, but we’re getting there.
I’m still waiting for my fingers to be slightly less tender before I start doing more of the lace sock but other than that, I have been keeping my creative impulses quietly ticking over. And I’ll keep doing that until the melancholy gets bored and goes away…
…it usually does 🙂
