I was laying out the hankies, trying to find the best combinations to make scarves when I found I wasn’t enjoying the work as much as I had been when I made the first four scarves.
I realized I was no longer focusing on making the scarves, but thinking of getting them done.
I was feeling the pressure of having to make a certain amount of Hankie Scarves and lost the joy of creating. I knew nothing good would come of that.
So I left my studio.
First Jon and I meditated together, then I went for a walk in the woods. I needed to clear my head. A strenuous uphill walk on the way there and a more leisurely walk back to the farm was just what I needed.
Back in my studio I rearranged the hankies into three scarves and sewed them together.
