I have a feeling that a little bit of introducing will take place the next couple of weeks. It will follow a random rythm. Nothing regular, programmed or planned. I'm not that kind of person. So bare with me !Here we go
I am not known to be a person to commit and frankly this starts getting at me so badly. I most of the time start something only to lose my passion for it a bit later and drop it all together after a while. This has been true for me when...learning foreign languages, going to the gym, blogging, jogging,making jewellery, sewing,keeping the house in order,writing journals,keeping friendships alive, praying, reading books, educating myself on something ...you name it.
My lack of commitement seems to be intergrated with me big time that's why I can't shake it off easily. It feeds on some of my not so good traits. It feeds on my perfectionism, on my laziness, on my impatience, on my selfishness, lack of practicality to name the few I have recognised and am certain about.
There is one area though that my lack of commitment strangely if you ask me, doesn't appy and this is my crochet projects! For some reasons unknown, I seem to complete every crochet project I have taken on until now! I have only realised this just today while thinking what to write about in this blog post. Hooray for blogging!
A crazy idea starts forming in my head to try collect and photograph all my crochet projects and present them to you but due to my lack of commitment... I don't promise.
However, if crochet is immune to my lack of commitment then photographing my crochet projects might be as well! Let's raise the suspence levels! Shall we?
Speaking of photographing my crochet projects ...I have already photographed two for you in this blogpost. What a nice coincidence!
The first black and white small carpet is a project of the previous summer when my love for minimal scandinavian style in interion design started. It was the first time I developed an interest in graphic forms and although I didn't... commit to this style I still like the simplicity of it.
However, as it turned out this scandinavian style love that I developed looking at noumerous pictures on Pinterest( translates to many lost hours)doesn't seem to apply to how my bedroom turned out. The bedroom I see in the photo below looks more country like traditional style than minimal scandinavian.. Anyway, I love yet again the simplicity of it and the lack of stuff. You see the bedroom we just left was a huge well lit room that served as a home office area/lounge area.In addition the room had a big closet and a big chest of drawers. Now add the peripheral mess flat areas attract and the occassional shelving unit and there you have . The chaos that my previous bedroom was.
But this one is like so easy to the eye, so calming, so without clutter that makes my heart jump with relief. The walk in closet and the absense of a home office plus that I have done a massive decluttering session( took me a year before the move ) all helped to the above result.
On another note, most days roll easily and stress free while the blazing heat is a permanent feature that doesn't allow for much action anyway! The word that speaks music to my ears lately has been simplicity. Simple, nurishing meals and simple pleasures like coffee and icecream with a glass of fresh iced water served on my crochet beauty seem to do the trick for me these days!
