Without a fraction of a doubt, September is my favourite month. For me, it has always felt like a month to begin things...school, new projects, even a new year of my own life (my birthday is later this month). Its funny how I feel so effected by the change into September...I want to clean. I want to knit. I want to make big stews in my enormous soup pan and bake things with apples and cinnamon. I can feel the pull towards distractability and looking around the looming deadline to see what is next.
In some ways, this September is bittersweet. I will hand in my manuscript at the end of the month and I am already very sad about it. Writing this book has been the single most professionally fufilling thing I have ever done. I love what I have designed. I love the process of designing. I love working with the wonderful people who are helping me along the way. I can not wait to show you all what I have been dreaming then making into reality.
But for now, I have to wait. There is more work to do, here where I am. Plans are forming for Life AB (after book)...Capturing Childhood, the etsy shop reopening, some photography work...but for now I have to keep my head down and focus not on the beginnings, but on the harvest.
P.S. My post on Manly Crochet was featured in this awesome eMagazine, Modern Vintage, grab a cuppa and set your liberty curls and have a read.
