Getting my groove back....

Hurrah, its started to to happen, I am getting my groove back.  After what feels like months of losing touch with my creative spirit, a time when I felt kind of lost and not in touch with who I am.  It gives me great pleasure to type this post.  Indeed my groove is finally returning.  Over the two weeks I have found that 'need' to make things has been quite overwhelming.  Was it the holiday? Time to recapture my child like spirit as I played with my children, is it the fact that each day brings more light as we slowly move through the last few weeks of this season? Is it the promise of all things warm and outdoorsy or is it just that need? The need that 'non making' people think is a form of insanity.... Whatever it is, all around me I see beauty and the need to connect with it.  My week away brought evenings curled up in front of the fire, the children sleeping off their busy days, peace and quite was all around, so I would pull out my knitting and dream of the warmer days to come whilst I toasted my toes after a day of walking in the cold and splashing in puddles.


Since returning home the usual post holiday blues has kicked in, I cried when I dropped my guys off  into school after the break.  How I miss them.  I have a list far to long to feel comfortable with, filled with things to do, calls to make and places to be.  I gave myself a weeks grace and in that time I have slowly caught up on things and allowed myself the time I needed to get myself into a better place.  My better place being my sewing room, Its the end of the day now, a Saturday and I feel contented... my finished sewing pile is finally bigger than the pile of 'to do'!

All that is left is to iron the sewing, tidy up the threads that have carelessly been left on the floor, turn off the light and head up stairs, yes contented after a days sewing, a reward of a movie and a big pot of tea...

Yes  I feel my groove is back...

Hope your weekend is filled with all that you love...

Hooray for a groovy weekend! Pleased to read you are feeling more like you. I was trying to explain to a friend recently how miserable I felt if I wasn't 'making'. She didn't 'get' it. x

Hi, Suzie! So glad your in your place again...keep grooving! ;o) I've had the winter blues myself. We're hip-deep in snow here, and no signs of spring at all...*SIGH*...But nothing like creativity to help us bounce bad. I was so glad you stopped by to see me...I'm sorry not to have been by myself. My winter blues has had me less chatty than usual--LOL! Happy Days to you all ((HUGS))

PS My "creative" groove is getting somewhat squashed in massive curtain making - very satisfying but not very creative!
