I am so glad it’s Friday. It’s been quite a big week actually.

  • Work was a bit up-and-down for me, with a lot of pressure and the initial freak-out of how I was going to deal with all that pressure. I think I’ve managed to get my head above it and work out how to move through it all without imploding. Have actually managed to get a lot of things ticked off my list, which is immensely satisfying.
  • Had the MRI, get the results this weekend.
  • Had two acupuncture appointments for my headaches.
  • Saw a new counsellor for the first time. I think it’s going to be very helpful; she seems lovely and the conversation flowed freely. We’ll see what comes out of it. But as always, when you have to go over the story of your life and how you got to this point, it can be quite exhausting and can drag emotions out of you that you weren’t expecting.

But now that we’ve finally gotten to Friday, I’m glad to report that I’m feeling better than I have all week, well enough to embark upon a new creative project. I’ve started to make this quilt which might seem a bit hokey to some of you, but I think it’s going to be interesting to do. It would be a great quilt to do in a church craft group; you could do one block a month and do a study on each part of the Bible the block represents. My godmother and I were thinking of starting a quilting group for Christian women in the area, but we’ve not managed to get in sync with our timing yet (it’s mainly me and my busyness, I’m pretty sure she’d be excited to do it anytime). It might happen one day, you never know.

I’ve almost finished the Walls of Jericho block tonight while watching Gilmore Girls season 7 with mum. I don’t have a sewing machine, so am sewing it all by hand, but I’m in no rush so it doesn’t bother me. A few days ago I was in such a mire of blackness I couldn’t even fathom how I would start a new project. So this is a Very Good Thing indeed!
