On the one hand there are so many people experiencing so much heartache and then there are those toting around boards saying “Sacrifice the week, open up Tennessee” .. Now..I love TN ! I have been influenced beyond belief by their awesome music for example , bit djeez !!!! Wthe?!!
I really wonder sometimes!! ?? How can you possibly say these things ! Even when a pandemic is not happening ?? Anyway..I digress.. I was talking about HAPPY FRIDAY .. I am easily distracted! Obviously ! lol
One thing you can be sure about is that it is in these times that we learn who our friends are, who are up to the task and who are a total disaster in every shape and form. I know it can be very tough living through this, but the essential word is “alive” ! We are alive and most importantly by staying home, we make sure that those who are so much more susceptible to succumbing to this terrible virus they stay safe as well. These are not normal times and now more than ever we need to realise somethimg very important : how we deal with adversity and how we adapt. (Read Richard Adams “Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy” ) If we are unable to adapt and protect others and be creative, well, we are stuck and ultimately not make it. I know these things sound awful but please , that’s the situation we are in. How do you act when you drop a stitch? Or when you make a mistake doing anything? You try and make the best of it and then , you tap into your brain and be critical of everything anyone throws at you . Actually, I think this is what is the most important thing in this world right now !!! In the old days, there was a presumption of some leaders to be respected and be know the best for all…HAHAHAHAH ,, yeah..no…. think for yourself! Please! Everything you read and see: please be critical. Think for yourself and be critical at all times.
There was a lot of sweat blood and tears involved. Lots of experimenting with natural dyes and acid dyes interacting together to create a “feeling: I wanted to convey. Yes, I take it very seriously…lol I finally finished the last of the batts for the clubs yesterday at about 1am and Paul , my amazing hubbie did all the packing and labelling. Everything was shipped off this morning. It’s a huge thing. And, it’s done ! and I hope Australia Post will do it’s thing and get it to all the club members as soon as possible ! This weekend I am already prepping the May Clubs ! Please have a look at my FB and IG feeds to get teasers!!!
Next club sign ups will be opening again next week friday ! Keep an eye out on this blog !
