Taking Time

One morning last week I rushed home after
my morning therapy session with kids to do some sewing for
the Auckland Art and Craft Fair.
I jumped out of my car and saw my neighbour cleaning his gutters.
He asked me how I was and I said "BUSY".
We talked for a while about how busy we both were and where had the year gone.

I came inside and sat down to sew.
Sometimes whilst sewing I listen to TED talks.
Mr O had recommend I listen to a talk by
Carl Honore called "In Praise of Slowness"
This talk really hit a chord with me.

That night I went out with a few girlfriends and over dinner I told my
friends about the talk.
One of my girlfriends said that her husband had decided lately to not say
that he was BUSY when people asked him as he felt he was wearing BUSY-NESS
like a Badge of Honour which he felt was not right.

If you can make the time do listen to the talk it is really funny and thought provoking

After listening to it my sister in law said she was going to start
listening to her inner turtle!

So I have been sewing for:

I have been loving blues and greens this week.
So here's a peak at some of the goodies I will be taking to the fair with me.

Hopefully if you live in Auckland I will see you there.
Do say  "Hi"  if you get the chance, I would love to meet the people that take the time to read my blog.
