The Week That Was…back to real life
Holy wow! This year has been something of a whirlwind – I’ve been working on a super huge deadline over the last couple of months and finally it is all behind me.
Large scale projects have the habit of taking over your life. You get so absorbed into every element of it that even in your down time you find that you are thinking, planning, dreaming about your project or your To Do List!
As a result, some things fall along the wayside, Ive not had time to check in here as much as I would like. Something that makes me feel bad and sad in ways I never thought possible, but I’ve made peace with that. After all, we can do anything we want, just not everything.
The last week has been spent tying up loose ends, catching up on emails and getting busy with the house and our renovations. So, even though a huge deadline has passed, I feel as though I have not stopped.
Over the last couple of weeks a few of the finest creative bloggers have been taking part in a Virtual Book Tour of my new book, Arm & Finger Knitting!
I’ve had the fantastic opportunity of sharing some of my creative processes from my new book, thoughts on blogging and future plans in an interview with the lovely folks over at Make It Shabby and, taking part in Laura’s – Bugs and Fishes – Crafty Ladies Feature – be sure to check out my top tips for Creative Business & Freelancers too!
I’m so stoked with the responses, reviews and finished makes by all of these creative folks – in fact, Ive been completely blown away! If you’ve not followed the tour be sure to check out these posts..
Are you a knitter? Do you use Ravelry? I’m a huge fan of this essential resource for all yarn hobbyists- this is my first port of call when looking for a new yarn for a project or design, it’s my go to when looking for new knits, gifts for new babies and for getting a knitting (or crochet!) fix when I don’t have time to grab my yarn.
You can find me on Ravelry – and also check out all of my knitwear designs and also view the whole selection of patterns featured in my new Arm & Finger Knitting book too!
I have been so blown away by all of your support and excitement for my new book – thank you & happy Arm & Finger Knitting y’all!
