Getting some perspective...

I'm going away for a while. I'm uncertain for how long. It could be one week or it could be several. I hope you will wait for me. I hope new followers don't mind. Hopefully you will explore my past and enjoy old blog posts, stories, pictures, tutorials and glimpses from my world - while waiting.

This is just temporary but very much needed. It is hard to write this post, to disconnect, but I think that feeling also shows how important it is for me to do this. For me, my children, my man, my life...
I'll be back, maybe sooner than later. I just thought it is more fair to let you know than to just go quiet.

Love to you all, enjoy your days ahead, your projects on the hook, your time with families. Make changes if you need some. Don't sit still if you need to move. Challenge yourself to grow, to face the fear and do it anyway. Live your life to its full potential. Carpe diem. I will miss you.

Kärlek
Annette

PS 1: And yes I am a dramatic person. I love drama, so take it all with a pinch of salt will you. I'm still crocheting, running, taking photos, enjoying my time with my peeps and my man. I'm still smiling and laughing. I just need a fresh start and sometimes the best way is to go to the moon and sit there for a while, looking down on it all, to get some perspective...

PS 2: The photo is of my darling daughter who knows perfectly how to pull off drama in its full in front of the camera lens. Love her dearly.

PS 3: My patterns will still be available in my Etsy shop, I will still read your lovely comments, I will still serve you if you bump into problems of some kind... I will just take a break from social media kind of. I thought I needed to clarify that.

  3. I hope you find peace and clarity, and that you have a restful break from things. Thank you for the words in your third paragraph, I needed to hear them today. I have read them and re-read them, and taken a deep breath and later on today I shall DO it, the thing I have been putting off. So thank you. CJ xx

  4. Hello, I've been reading your blog for a little while now and I just wanted to say I wish you well on your sabbatical! I think it sounds like a great idea, you have to spend time with yourself every so often just to take stock and get some peace and perspective. Hope all settles into place nicely for you, I'll be here to read the blog when you return :)

  14. Wow...that was quite dramatic. Thank Heaven for the Post Scripts...I was thinking something terrible had happened. Taking a break is not a crime and there should not be any guilt with it. I don't Blog, but I sure enjoy reading the them. I can't begin to imagine just how much time it takes to produce one and so I appreciate what is offered every time I open your page. Here's to working on the baby quilt without interruption. :) xoxo Robin Elaine

  23. Förstår precis hur du känner. Ibland måste man få distans för att ladda batterier, få perspektiv och avstånd kan få längtan att vakna... Njut av allt underbart! Kärlek!!

  41. Artists, like farmers, know that one must occasionally let the field lie fallow so that it can generate new growth in the future. :)

  42. I, too, am glad you added post scripts! Lol! Sit on the moon for a while, paddle your bare feet in eddies of stardust, watch the comets race by as they play interstellar tag and lose yourself for a while in the slow, stately dance of the universe......enjoy!

  48. Ibland är nog en paus det bästa och mest inspirerande man kan ta sig för! Funderar lite pp om jag borde göra detsamma, när det gäller min blogg. Det känns liksom inte riktigt som förut och jag har inte alls samma tid att skapa längre. Och det är ju det jag vill göra - skapa och inspirera.
    Ja ja... Får väl se hur det blir med det. Men ha det bra i din paus i alla fall!
    Kram //Petra

  49. Hi Annette! This is my first comment on your blog but I have been reading your entries and watching your photos for a few months now. I always wanted to let you know how i like your blog, now I guess time has come to actually say it!! Your notes come into my daily life as little drops of peace and beauty and I enjoy every bit of them. I like your style very, very much. Even this farewell post and its intention are so very graceful and, once again, I see in them your unique mark. All the best dear for your lunar trip. Hope to read you soon, or again. Anna xx
