At a snail's pace

That's me, working at a snail's pace these early winter days.  The holiday with a wonderful whirlwind trip to Nevada has left me feeling tired.  It hasn't helped that I developed a cold and am working with ears, nose and head stuffed.

There are year-end administrative things to do around here and yesterday we received the tax-man's questionaire so that is one more paper to pile upon the other seemingly endless pieces of paper.

It is cold and damp outside which makes me want to just curl up and sip a hot cup of tea.  If I were truly a snail I believe I'd be pulled into my shell right now.  I do know however, that the very best medicine for this type of lethargy would be punching designs on fabric.  So perhaps, just for today, I'll try to ignore winter, my not-going-away cold and all those papers sitting there.  After all isn't stitching the very best medicine.

"A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, throught the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened." - Albert Camus


  1. Oh poor you!

    Yes...sit back....stitch...and sip tea..

    (from now on to be known as the "3 S's" ...the cure for EVERYTHING!)

  2. Must be something in the air, Penny. I've had less time for my projects, but when I do have time I find initiative is lacking. Time to recharge, I guess.

  3. Lovely images. Hope you feel better soon!

  4. Sure hope you're feeling better, Penny. Been doing a bit of that curling up stuff myself...and then I hit the beads :>]] Wondrously uplifting...as is that Camus quote you posted. Rest easy.

  5. It can be hard to concentrate with a cold. You need something quiet and meditative which doesn't require decision making!

  6. I just landed on your blog from somewhere else and wondered what on earth it was about - seeing all those snails up there! But I have been looking around and following links to all your gorgeous hearts and just love the earthy colours and the 'garden' ones (they appeal to me more than the pretty colours you usually get). Lovely blog and I will be back.
