Working...Balance and the Nature of Things...

Finding the right balance between the computer and all the other things that need to be done is a challenge...this is always a busy time of year for me...many deadlines...yet the natural rhythm of the seasons tells me to slow down...to rest and nest...no wonder at times I feel like don't know which way to move.
Yet..I'm happy...I'm right where I need to be!
I joke that I've needed to work like a "well oiled machine"...but actually it has been good for me. My parents are needing more help these days and I'm so glad to still live close and be there for them...
Today is a hooking day...I'm working on a commission for a client in North Carolina. It's Edyth O'Neill's "Old Chalk Deer"...I love Edyth's designs (now available from Barbara Carroll at Woolley Fox). I don't often get the chance to hook another designer's pattern...so this is fun! I'll post updates when time permits...
Wishing You Much Happiness on this Mid-Winter Day ~L


  1. Hi Laurie,
    Wow that is a big rug you're working on!! I can only imagine how gorgeous it will be! I feel the pressures this time of year also and also think it would be so nice to slow down and really enjoy the natural rhythms..... rug hooking saves it for me though!!
    I hate to ask but did you happen to get my email a few days ago about being a reference for me? If you could email me ( antcathy@charter.net) I can explain! Thanks Laurie!

  3. Hi Laurie,
    Can't wait to see your progress on Edyth's design. I love hooking them. Haven't done the one you are doing tho.

  4. I like that chalkware deer pattern. Has a great border. You will do wonders for it! Looking forward to seeing the progress.
    How wonderful that you are close enough to help your parents. You will be so Blessed :)
    It's a lot of work at times.

  5. Looking forward to seeing your new work on the rug.

  6. Your studio is ever so cozy! Wishing you many joyful hours creating your lovely rugs.
