Where Have I Been?

Here and there, up and down, in and out, back and forth, round and round.......I always seem to be going in every direction at once. Work has been keeping me very, very busy so I'm pretty worn out by the time I get home, so not much energy for anything else right now. However, considering the current world economic woes, I am grateful that I have a job to be busy at. The Tiny Treasures Exchange keeps me busy as well, but it has been a delight getting to know its members - they are a great bunch of stitchers and it is very heartwarming to see them encouraging one another and enjoying the exchanges.

Several people have emailed asking if I'm okay. Thank you for your obvious concern! I am so sorry to have caused anyone to worry! I am not one of those highly scheduled, organized people that always seem to accomplish so much in so little time. Rather, I am more of an impulse, whim-driven person - working feverishly at whatever I am currently focused on, to the exclusion of most everything else. Then my focus will shift to something else for awhile. This is why I sometimes post lots of entries to the blog and other times not so much. I am usually surprised by how much time has slipped by without a post and then other times you can't shut me up! Designing is the same way for me - sometimes I can't do anything else, the design ideas are just running away with me there are so many. Other times the ideas are just running away from me instead - I will have an idea for something but it just doesn't seem to gel - I just can't stay focused enough to get anywhere with it. In that case, I set it aside and give my attention to something else for awhile. Sooner or later, I will get back to it and the pieces will all fall into place. So, welcome to my roller coaster!

Good to hear from you. I do understand - I go with the impulse many times, too! Yes, it is good to have a job. Hope it settles down some for you!

Glad everything is okay with you, Sharon. I understand the "focus-driven life" - I'm the same way. I've had to force myself to schedule some balance into my life!

Hey girl! I ride on that same rollercoaster:)

Yes, glad to hear that all is well, my Father is not well, and I have become hyper-sensitive to things that change too suddenly, haha! Life is certainly a roller coaster, glad to be on it, would love a litte rest from it at the same time. LOL!! Take care!!

I'm like you, totally immersed in the current whatever. People tend to think I've 'given up' on one thing just because I move on to the next. But not far down the road, back to the other thing, which you never really 'lost interest in' in the first place. I understand perfectly!!! Someday, I'm going to start a project, a really big project, and work it start to finish without taking a break for something new.....nah, never mind, that doesn't even sound like fun (LOL).
