It's been a while since my last post. My postings have been highly irregular lately, to say the least. I was feeling under the weather last week, literally, which explains part of my absence here. But I've been thinking also. About which way things should be going here. And to be honest - I don't know.
From the moment I started publishing tutorials, my blog has become increasingly popular. A couple of nice projects have come along thanks to that which I'm really grateful about.
But it has put some strain on me as well. And right now I find it very hard to find a balance. I do not want to publish tutorials or DIY's just for the sake of having DIY or tutorial in the title, attracting the huge numbers of visitors - the ultimate approval. I feel pressured to come up with new and better. It keeps me from doing other things, more meaningful things perhaps. I'm fighting with numbers and that's not what blogging should be about. Not for me, that is.
So, that explains my little retreat. Instead of spending time online, I have been sewing. Slowly. In between things. No rush. Stitch by stitch. And I really enjoyed it.
I even took time for photographing the pieces of frayed silk scattered on the floor, before picking them up...
And it felt good...
