life lived quietly

back in february, i started working 50 hours a week to help out when there was a shortage of nurses.  my intention was only to do it for a month; i continued until may.  during that time, i felt like my creative side was forced into hibernation and, to an extent, it was.  knowing that it wouldn't be wise to work on something that required my full attention, i picked back up my granddaughter's quilt that had been horribly ignored for too long.  there were times that i was only able to get 30 minutes of stitching in but it was still progress.  on april 30th, i was able to put the last stitch in and call it done.

it has taken me a few weeks to get back into the swing of things, but first i needed to get caught up on sleep.  i've since pulled back out my knitting, have spent some time in front of my loom and dusted off my camera.  i can't tell you how good it feels to be working on these things again.

 even though i do love my work as a nurse, my creative side is a must for me.  i don't take it for granted.
