Work has been rather crazy lately… well it actually hasn’t been very rosy for a while already. The most of 2011 was fraught with uncertainty, new challenges and frustrations. It seems 2012 would be unrelenting in terms of the changes that will soon confront me.
The bosses dropped a huge bomb on my lap last week, suggesting (actually leaving me with not much of a choice) that some changes take place in to my current portfolio. It is still rather unsettling as certain things haven’t been ironed out as yet and there are still many moving parts to this whole saga. While exciting to some extent, it also scares me knowing the kind of expectations that will be placed on to me going forward.
There is probably a ton of things to be done…which will probably take quite some time to sort out as well. To de-stress, I have actually been crocheting, a lot! It is the only thing that is truly enjoyable now and takes my mind off the situation a little (ok, maybe a bit too much). But it has been making me really happy to see the final products – almost instant gratification.
This little lunch baggie was done in 3-4 days, including a day where I had to redo everything and make a smaller than planned bag due to shortage of yarn. Love the colour (the very “now” and “in” mustard) and a lovely close knit pattern that doesn’t require me to sew any lining for it (yay!). I have been getting really great feedback on it and two persons have requested for me to share the pattern already.
Picked up even more yarn today to make another bag and yet another baby teddy bear for a colleague’s daughter. Trying out cotton yarn this round instead of my usual acrylic to see how it will turn out. Feeling rather crazy doing this but it seems like a great way to preserve my sanity.
