It's the joy in the process just as much as it is the finished product. I forget that sometimes in my rush to get the next project done -- and wonder why I'm so stressed. I forget to enjoy the steps (not that all steps are as enjoyable as others -- I can do without some of them, but that's part of it too I guess). And spending a week enjoying the time I spent with my mother (which was way too short Mom -- next visit I really want more time!) even though we were busy, busy, busy, was just what I needed to get me fired up to finish the work on 'Cause I Can't Crochet and enjoy the process not just rush to get a finished result. Let's see how well I keep to that resolution -- given that I still have a list of projects I want to/need to work on, and this past week added to the pile! (though one did get crossed off -- I finally finished Mom's pillows and they are now safely at their final destination, no photos 'cause I'm a dork that way, but Mom said she'd take some when they are in place) I'll post pictures of the new fabric goodies soon -- just need to take some photos first!
In the meantime (and so this is not a picture less post) another simple pleasure that is bringing me joy -- Mom treated me to a manicure and pedicure while she was here. Every once in awhile it is nice to get pampered and to remember that I can be a girly girl! And these flowers on my toes, with the little jewel sparkles, these are just making me giggle all over! Thanks Mom!
