Other Things I do
Usually during the weekdays I am a longarm machine quilter and quilt for other people (you can see more at my blog http://purrfectlyquilted.blogspot.com)
I was working during the weekends but found this to be too difficult both physically and mentally - so now I only do around 4 days a week if I can. One day a week is left for doing chores and things I have to do to keep the house running. You know what I mean ... cleaning, shopping, washing etc etc. The older we get, the longer these things take to do. I am good at procrastination too!
But the weekends are mine to be with my family and play ... I choose between tangling (yes I still do this and will post some more soon); drawing with coloured pencil and graphite (an old love of mine); crochet (very easy to put down and pick up where you left off even if it was months ago); spinning fibre (a very new love) and I still quilt for myself occasionally and am in the process of putting together some projects at the moment.
In the words of singer James Blunt "My life is brilliant". Having SLE (lupus) makes me plan my time better (especially around the days I have the heavy drugs) and focus on what is important to me. So I say make time for the little things that make you smile, even if it is just sharing a minute or two with someone special to you.
So for now I would like to show you one little blog that makes me smile everytime I go and read it .... http://elviestudio.blogspot.com/ I almost guarantee it will make you smile too. Have fun and tangle some too! Jane x
