I have also been making bee blocks. These are my do. Good Stitches blocks for Steph. How cute are these little houses?
I have also been spending lots of time with my family. My husband's office gave him 8 weeks of paid paternity leave which has been amazing.
And having this time has given me a lot to think about regarding how I have been spending my time and how I would like to be spending my time. This doesn't really have anything to do with quilting because I love the time that I am able to spend sewing and I consider it important for my sanity, but there are lots of things in my life that are not important.
But the main thing that does need to go: social media. Not completely, because I like sharing and seeing what other people share, but it needs to move way down the priority list. I got rid of my Facebook account about a year ago when I realized that it was not only wasting my time, but it was making me more stressed and less happy. It felt like it was tying me down. And now Instagram, blogs, and keeping up with news sites is doing something similar. More than anything I just need to put my phone down and be more present in my life.
So I don't think much will change around here. I still want to make things and I still want to share them, but I want to try to respect your time more and make my blog a more worthwhile and encouraging place to be. It might take me a while to get there, but that is the direction I am hoping to go. So if there is something that you would like to see in this space, please let me know. Thank you so much for your support, I couldn't do it without you!
