A revealing post

Soooo......This week has been interesting here at my house. We have been under construction and things have been messy but the progress has been awesome. It has made me think about alot of things especially since I painted non stop and had the time to think. I have really gotten caught up in things and have been a stress case this last year or more. I always have tons on my plate since I started to get really involved in the sewing community on flickr, which is amazing and has been great, but it has made me feel like I have to create and create something new, no one has done before and to always be making and creating and getting things out there to keep up with everyone else. I have taken on to much and added way to much stress into my life and things have suffered. It is totally my fault and I need to fix it and get back to the person I was before. When I did all of this for me and my girls. When I wasn't always sewing and on the computer all the time. Craziness I know.

I love to sew and make things but I need to be able to slow down. I want to read again ( I am a sucker for a good romance novel) and not always thinking of all the sewing things I need to get done and the anxiety and pressure it makes me feel. I need more time with my girls and husband. I am just letting you know that I will be slowing down and nothing is wrong just that I am going to get back to having fun and doing things when I want to do them and not taking on to much.

To do that I am dedicating today's picture for my 365 project to :

Love - 58:365

LOVE - 58:365

Don't worry though sewing is in my blood and I love it and just love fabric ( Denyse Schmidt reprinting Flea Market Fancy?!?!?!?! YES PLEASE) and will still be doing all that I have been just at a slower pace! It is going to be a great year. This new house has given me a new outlook and happiness.

It's hard to find balance sometimes. I hope you find some soon!

I absolutely understand what your saying, Darci! I've been doing the same thing these last few months and it's been hard. My heart is to spend more time with my husband, but sometimes it's almost like an obsession when I choose to sew and flickr and blog instead of doing something with him. Good for you for trying to find that balance. :)
