Celebrating today that I am back designing again after a difficult injury that spread to both arms making it impossible to knit, crochet and doing basic things everyday.  I want to thank my amazing family who were my hands and arms during this time.  They truly are amazing and I am so blessed that I have the most amazing husband in the world who stopped to look after me when I couldn’t.  I am so grateful for everything you do.  I also want to thank my amazing kids  who also became my hands and helped me everyday including cooking!  (I now have some awesome cooks in the house!!)  I wouldn’t have made it through this time without them.  Thank you all so very very very much!  My favourite thing in the whole world is being with you!  You guys are my everything!  THANKS!

As an Artist it was very difficult not to create everyday like I was used to.  At first it was almost painful to not knit or crochet creating what inspired me that day, but as time went on and I began to let go and take the time to rest my injured arms. I began to relax and design in my mind.  Though it was a very physically painful time it also gave my mind and arms a rest which I found calms your creativity and lets you fine tune things.  Sometimes set backs are actually steps forward, we just can’t see them at the time as we get lost in the emotion and hardship of the moment.  I have been able to crochet a bit this week and finished this scarf I had been working on prior to my injury.  It felt so good to create again.

The Floral Architectural Essence Scarf is a combination of two scarves (a long two tones scarf with slits I put in and a vine frieze scarf woven through them.  I designed a floral brooch that can be used on and off this design or other items in your wardrobe.  I also made an all ivory one I will post later.   I haven’t decided if I am selling this one yet as I love it so much I may have to keep it. 🙂
