Is the answer in the wind?

Life is quite complex at times. Sometimes you feel like your right foot is on your left foot and your left foot is on your right foot and you just seem to walk in circles......for me, the last two weeks have been a little like this- teetering on the line between being overwhelmed with responsibility, and yet wishing that you could suspend life in a particular moment, because you are so content.

My outlet has always been making things. If I ever feel overwhelmed or stressed, a sewing machine, a crochet hook, a paint brush or even a pair of pliers has always made me feel better. That being said, I've been making A LOT of things lately which has given me a chance to delve into my own little world (it's nice there- lots of butterflies and beef jerky yum). With Spring here, I felt that I needed to make some bright, happy things:

I also made this Amber like one:
And making a pretty pendant
And my crochet hook combined with hemp twine is ready to go to make a necklace
I have so many things rolling around in my head. It's just getting the time to put it into practise. And I feel one pretty cool person sung "The answer my friend, is blowing in the wind. The answer is blowing in the wind."

I think I just might go outside, under my beautiful big trees and listen.............

(remember it's Thursday today.....yuk....)
