This post should probably be titled “This month I am” given it has been over a month since I have posted here. However, as I can manage only what is in front of me right now, let’s start with that.
Enjoying :: the glorious Autumn weather Canberra gives us. Crisp mornings, sunny days, clear blue skies and fireside evenings.
Loving :: my children and my husband. As corny as it is, Mr Procrasticraft and the three smalls are what this life is all about.
Appreciating :: my friends. Those who are physically present in my life, those in the interwebs and those who are no longer with me. I am grateful everyday that I have such supportive, intelligent, generous, creative and funny people along for the ride on this crazy journey that is my life.
Sharing :: my language and my love of food with a new Spanish friend. She is sharing her language and her love of food with me. If you ever have the chance to trade language and cooking lessons with someone new to your country, take it! Learning a language through cooking each other’s food, hello!
Making :: class samples – I am going to teach some quilting classes using modern designs and improv techniques – I couldn’t be more thrilled. The design and making aspect of this is fabulous, writing the patterns, not so much. Do you write patterns? Any tips?
Working :: for the first time in many years. I’ve set up my own small business working as a virtual assistant and through that, I get to spend a whole day of each week in a fabric store!!! SO. MUCH. FUN!!!
And finally, tonight I am remembering :: right now, it feels so appropriate to be in this space, one which I was encouraged to enter by my dear sweet friend Kathreen. You see, today it has been one year since she and her gorgeous hubby lost their lives. One whole year since I heard her voice. So right now I am missing and I am thanking. Missing my friend so very much and thanking every being possible that I was lucky enough to have had her as my friend at all. I’m thanking her for encouraging me to follow my dreams. Thanking her for believing in me when I didn’t believe in myself. Thanking her for inspiring me to live a more creative life. Thanking her for being her and for showing me how to be me.
Miss you Kathreen. And thank you dear friend.
