I've been absent this last month or so as any posts would have ended up being a litany of ailments and moaning, not fun to read. I'm trying to accept my condition and health but really don't. Not at all - I am angry and frustrated with my body for letting me down. I saw my consultant last week ( I get to see him once every six months ) and the first thing he said was 'you look well'....well if he doen't know how infuriating that is to someone with an invisible illness what hope is there.
Enough moaning and woe.
I have been plannng the Spring and Summer workshops in the studio, I am holding two a week so I don't over do it but that means I have to trim my wishlist down as there are always more ideas in my head for classes than time available. I am lucky to have so many wonderful customers who want to make my projects - patchwork clocks, patchwork lampshades or crochet hangers they are all well received and enjoyed. It's fabulous seeing their different interpretations of my ideas - I love my job and it lifts my spirits no end.
In a couple of weeks French Knots Craft Studio will be three years old and my head is bursting with new ideas for kits, ebooks, events, weekend retreats and creative workshops. I keep writing them all down on the mind map that acts as my business plan and will get to them all eventually but not just as quickly as I'd like. Trying to learn patience....well that is very much a work in progress!
