This bunting sits in my office. I made it for Hubble & I’s wedding. I like that every time I sit in my office I am reminded of one of the happiest days of my life. One of the last times that my family will ever be together as a whole, now that my Stepfather has passed. My office also has one of my favourite photos. I took it with a compact camera and it is of my niece, Ivy. She is just a flash in the photo as she ran past me playing at the edge of the ocean one sunny afternoon. It really embodies the personality of her – playful, joyous, carefree and so full of potential.
So much has passed since that day. Some sad, a lot of it happy memories and some memories that still hurt to think about, which might be why I don’t seem to spend a lot of time in this room. Maybe I don’t want to be reminded of all that has gone on in the last few years to my family, that if truth be spoken, will never be the same again. Sometimes what is broken, cannot be fixed…
But with the hurt and sadness comes growth and hopefully healing which I’m doing a lot of lately, trying to heal my emotional wounds so that my physical body gets better. Healing from the inside out. Doing all this soul searching means I have not had much time for creating so not much to report this week on that level.
You see I have this habit of totally engrossing myself in whatever “thing” I’m obsessed with at the time, which this year has been craft/sewing/stitching/quilting. Unfortunately this means that other areas of my life get dropped and when I stop working on those things my life becomes unbalanced. So now I’m concentrating on balance. Doing a bit of everything including working on healing myself until I am whole again. So whilst this blog will stay mainly about my craft it may also occasionally have a post or two about the life I am creating for myself and the healing process I’m going through.
So enough deep and meaningful. Hubble has the weekend off and I intend to spend some quality time with him. Hopefully Perth will pull out some beautiful Spring weather.
Until next time…happy creating!
