As a working woman it can often be difficult to balance work, home and the passion the fiber arts into every day life. Many women across the nation every day try to fit everything into a nice neat little package called a schedule, but that doesn’t always include time for themselves, let alone time for their knitting or crocheting. Far too often projects are put aside, not to be picked up for days, weeks or even months at a time. Many working women sneak in knitting or crocheting during meetings, during lunch hours, early in the morning before work and late in the evening before bed time.
Unlike our mothers, and even our grandmothers, who had the ability to pursue the handcrafts at their leisure to create items for their home and family, women of today find themselves stretched for time and many only dreaming of the ability to spend time with their needles or hooks.
In today’s busy world, time is a precious commodity and finding time to pursue what we love can be quite challenging. Be sure to take time for your craft of knitting, crocheting and spinning. It is a proven fact that handcrafts can bring peace, tranquility, balance and even good health.
So, how do you balance work, family and life in general with your crafty pursuits?
