Everything is happening so fast, I need a moment.....

Here we are heading into the last few weeks of June already...... where has the time gone?
Sometimes when I need a moment to recharge and relax, I love to look at my photos of "whites"......some how this makes me feel better, calmer. This may sound strange but I am always comforted by white...... What do you do to slow things down?
What does it take to make you feel at peace and relaxed?


Just to touch some soft white wool and imagine......
Okay, now I can get back to work....I just needed a break!

Looking at the yarn & needles inspired me to go pick up mine.
Glad you took a break....mine has been way too long. LOL

I hadn't realized it until you said it but the lovely whites are calming. Your blog is always calming and serene. These are beautiful pictures today. I love your beautiful lady. Hugs, Diane

I usually read. But sometimes I have to organize. It helps me feel in charge of SOMETHING ;) I love your pics!! They relaxed me!
I am breathless with anticipation for "her" to arrive ;)
Hugs, Lisa

Hi Margaret:
I have lots of things that make me relax, mostly centered around the studio, but your whites are so completely soothing! I love looking at all of them.
Blessings, my friend.

Your whites are very calming as I look at them and imagine the feel of the soft yarns. For me I usually turn to music which I like all genres and always have at least one that fits my mood. Happy creating...

Hi Margaret,
Your whites are very soothing. My "calming" place is typically my studio room. To others it may look like a chaotic mess of "stuff" but it's my place to unwind and take a break from some of life's craziness.

I read. Read. And then read.

Did I say I read?

I'm already thinking of Christmas (you do that when you are in retail) and that is one SCARY THOUGHT!

Gotta go read.

Love your whites. You are amazing and totally inspire me.

Love to you~

Rebecca

Actually, doing something {anything} helps calm me. If I need calming emotionally I clean things up. The funny thing is that I hate to clean!

Kai said...

I generally read or crochet - both transport me to calm places. But I can NOW add, "Visit Margaret's blog & look at the white things!" That's just LOVELY and so serene!

Deb said...

These pictures make me relax - they're wonderfu. But I usually cross stitch or quilt to relax.
