I've been spending a lot of my summer being introspective and trying to figure out which direction I'm traveling. Well slowly but surely I've discovered that I have rekindled my love of knitting and crocheting and the ideas and projects have been moving nicely along and my mood moving nicely along with it. I still don't know how it will turn out "out there" but I know it makes me feel better "in here" so onward I go. I haven't given up hand embroidery all together but the ideas are flowing with the yarn and the needles so needlecrafted means something a little different today then it did at the beginning of the summer.
My son has entered college and moved from a helpless high school student to an adult college student overnight. Hopefully mom will move along with him. It's so hard to move along to a different kind of relationship with my son. I have been your classic only mother catering to his every whim and our relationship grew over the summer due to some issues that we passed through. So now I have to cut the apron strings and let him know how proud I am of his new mature outlook!
Not much else is new, although at the moment I'd say just changing my direction in work and motherhood is enough. I hope this blog post finds you well and I hope to be posting much more then I have been of late(it's been a really tough summer).
