Enough


The clock is ticking on the wall, it is dark, early, I am having coffee and trying to find the calm in this busy week and this Christmas universe. No matter how hard I try to resist, the frenzy tries to grab and to hold tightly. I sit here, with my hands on the keyboard and focus on the little marks on the screen. Words, I am trying to find the right words to calm me down. I tell myself that good enough is good enough, there is no need and no room for perfect, as that word is so harsh.
This year I read many quilting blogs and followed many quilt designers. I think it was in the Quilt Show by Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson; Victoria Finlay Wolfe was teaching her techniques (she has done beautiful Double Wedding Rings quilts, not the usual kind but with a modern twist, they are amazing) and somewhere during the interview she said that her word is enough. ENOUGH, not in a meaning I have had enough, but I am enough.   
I am enough.

Since I typed the sentence, I am enough, not a thought has entered my brain. Maybe this in enough.

Hold the thought. 
And wool, as always, with you,
Lene

PS. I would love to make something small for the tree today. Or something small to the kittens. It always brings me joy, not just calm but joy as well. That is if I have the time.

PPS. There is the search box on the right now, should you need it.

In good company

Today, I came home exhausted, crashed down to sofa, was going to knit a few rows before taking up other stuff to do, but… Väinö curled next to me and his soft, lulling purr took me to sleep. I don’t feel like I am up and awake, I think I will go, pick up the knitting, probably end up holding it on my lap, before it is time to crawl to bed. I will call it a day and think that tomorrow is another.


Wool with you,
Lene
