Here I am.

Most days I'm glad about it. I like my life and I like keeping busy, pottering about at home and doing domestic things. Crafting and making are a huge and important part of my life. For the past few years, off and on, I've suffered from bouts of depression. Making offers me respite when my brain is persisting in telling me really dumb and unproductive stuff. The simple meditation in the making of stitches, mindfulness of the simple steps of the task at hand, turning raw materials into beautiful things.

I've been feeling better with the turn of the seasons. Melbourne's seemingly interminable winter grey has given into the clear blue skies of spring. The whole city feels lighter. But maybe that's just me.

I had a lovely weekend, I hope you did too. Here's some of mine.
