Crocheting is something I’ve enjoyed for quite a while! I taught myself how to crochet while I was a grad school student, back in 2010. I became very good at … Continue reading Books to Knit and Crochet By
Last night’s Sips and Stitches event went really well. It was located in Flemington, not far from where I work. I was the only crocheter at the gathering (the group leader does also, but currently does cross-stitching), but I enjoyed meeting others who work with yarn like me.
I felt a welcoming presence from the group leader, and she was easy to talk to. The other members were friendly also, with the exception of one who only cared to network with ppl with embroidery tools in front of them. I laughed it off. Everyone has their way of interacting with others. Hopefully I can make it to the next yarn crafting event held in the area.
It’s been a couple days since I had my first OT session. I’ve been diligently doing my exercises, and I’m hopeful that it will all work out favorably in a couple weeks. For the next two weeks I go twice after work, so hopefully my hand will improve dramatically next month. The only part that will be rough will be getting home late, then it sets back the regular walking activity I have coming home. But it will all work out. I can’t wait to crochet again…I really miss working with yarn, and this tendinitis prevents me from doing so.
I’m really glad that I completed a pillow these past couple days. The recent nor’easter caused my center to be closed for two days, so I took the opportunity to … Continue reading March 8, 2018: Creativity Paused
When I truly have time to spend to catch up with work, and prepping, I take full advantage. I never know when I’ll have the opportunity again. Since my center is going for re-accredidation this year, I spent this moment gathering notes and materials for what I need. Since this is also a day for medical appointments, I made the necessary visits and refills.
Tonight I complete my first pillow for my future cozy corner in the classroom. I can’t wait to view the finished product and begin putting it together. Starting with little is a challenge, but it will make the end result fulfilling.
Today It’s back to managing work with the extra tasks that accompanies it. At our professional developmemt meeting yesterday, we were given the tools needed to create accredidation binders according to age group. At first glance it appears very daunting, and both my partner and myself hold reservations on being paired together. We both have a job to do, however, so hopefully this project can be completed as soon as possible.
One positive outcome out of this situation is that my crocheting creativity is ignited again. I need a new ‘cozy corner’ for my classroom, and while I have some materials for this area (blanket, basket for books), I need some pillows. So I’m making them. A productive use of my yarn stash! 😊
Our roads in life sometimes have new challenges appear in our journey. We just need to figure out how to navigate through them in order to keep moving.
