As well as the blog I constantly check my twitter and g mail accounts. I really need to break out of this habit as it is having a destructive effect on me and taking away precious time that I could be doing something constructive.
I really need to cut down on time spent at the computer and with this in mind I am going to step away from the blog. Not for long. Hopefully. Just a breather.

Surrendering to trying to find out a career via those two conflicting systems I looked to the midheaven point at which I was born. If I have my information correct, it seems that cancer is my midheaven point. This stays the same whether I follow the vedic or western system. For now I will let this new information be my guiding light.
Talking of looking to the past, I recently bought a collection of original 'Henry' cigarette cards from the 1930's. I have no idea what I am going to do with them yet but I liked their humour and the colours used. They are in great condition considering they were created around 80 years ago!

It has been a strange week of mixed emotions. I just want to make things but sometimes other people's needs come first. I can get so wrapped up with creative projects that I think that if I lived alone I would just make things until I lost consciousness!
There are some jolly bluebells in the garden right now. Alas, not the wild native Bluebell Hyacinthoides non-scripta but the Spanish Hyacinthoides hispanica which is threatening to take over our native species. They are pretty all the same and I will pick them later and put into a jam jar.
I hope your Friday is going well and that you have a cheery weekend. If you do decide to make a pincushion from the tutorial above let me know how you got on.

Today I have one of my monkey mind days. Should I embark on some machine sewing, or do some fabric printing or a follow a further painting lesson in my Carrie Schmitt book, or even take another look at the felt animals and see if I can get around the problems I was having making them?
For now I think I will take a deep breath, have some breakfast and see how the mood takes me afterwards. Do you have any advice on how to tame a monkey mind or resist jumping from one project to another? Sometimes I feel quite exhausted!
Have a great day!
