snippets : spring flowers | Emma Lamb

Hi guys, sorry for the bloggy silence these last few days. I've not been feeling 100% and one of the big promises I've made to myself for 2014 is to go easy on myself and really listen to the needs of my mind and body.

In practical terms it simply means that when I'm not feeling great I'll be prioritising restful things like leisurely walks with the wee man, crochet or knitting and making sure I eat well with lots of fresh and healthy food. (Winter is soup season and I love soup season!) I'll also be going easy on myself and not agonising over blog posts and the like (if I have pretty, exciting or colourful stuff to share it will be just as pretty, exciting and colourful tomorrow or the next day, or even the next after that!), so if I drop offline for a few days it's just me being totally selfish with my time ;)

So these last few days I've been selfishly smelling the flowers, starting a new blanket for the wee man, flipping through the pages of my new Pompoms, swooning over delicious hand dyed yarns, hanging out at Ravelry finding new friends and projects to love as well as getting to know this utterly gorgeous linen yarn!

Oh it feels so good to be selfish... I could really get used to this!
Emma, x

  1. I hope you are feeling better Emma. I've been making lots of homemade soups, trying to be healthy too. Don't worry about taking time for yourself, I think we all need time offline xx

  2. Very wise words - "you" or "me" time is sooo important. I'm trying to reduce my online time too - my motto for this year is "create more, consume less" :)

  3. Oh my gosh, those triangles you're knitting are beautiful! Also, I hope you feel better soon. Soup is definitely a good idea. =)

  4. How is the linen yarn working out? Hope you're feeling well soon and enjoying your soup :)

  5. You're doing the right thing! Will always enjoy the prettiness of your blog but your health is more important! Take it easy x

  6. Love the colors :)
