I think maybe I’ve found my center

Well, for today.
I’m happy with myself.
I’m doing cross stitch, which for me it really my bliss. My projects are difficult enough to be challenging but not so hard I pitch them out the window. Unlike knitting, I can actually see progress happening!

My knitting is zipping along, since I have finally figured out how to HAPPILY design my own things. Not only am I making the fabric and the garment at the same time; I’ve figured out what I like my sweaters to look like. I do Estonian lace knitting, but it is slow going because the lace weight is tiny and time consuming.

I’ve started fiddling with natural fragrances as I decorate my giant spa bathroom to be exactly what I envision. No hurry. I’m taking it one day at a time.

Little by little, I’m finding metal and terra cotta planters to my veranda garden, along with porch swings and wooden rocking chairs. I’m slowing down, so what I buy are things I really love looking at.

I’m content and looking at the last long bit of my past, it is a pretty good feeling!
