Welcome to my korner of the world, with big bay windows. I like to let the sun shine in and warm me, so that I can be inspired. With that inspiration of warmth, I can create a better me, and hopefully touch other lives for the better. And together perhaps we can piece together a better, more positive world.

 I am contemplating my BEING right now.  Who am I? Who am I meant to be? How do I effect others lives for the better?  I know that the world does not revolve around me, but I do make a difference in the world.  We are all here for a purpose. 

I suffer from chronic health issues.   I take medications to keep them under control, but more importantly, I know that having my thoughts in the positive range is much more important to living life.  Life is survivable, but I want to LIVE it, enjoy it. I want to share the joy I find in life on a daily basis.

Therefore, I crochet and needle felt.  When I am felting I am able to let go of the bad thoughts that like to replay in my mind, and I am able to see the joy that will come from my creations.  Perhaps it will be the warmth and uniqueness of my hats, or the smiles that come from my sheep, or other animals I create.  With each crochet stitch I see how the mistakes can be easily erased,  and how sometimes you really have to think to make the pattern come out correctly. 

And so it is in life....I take the mistakes, and grow from them, and felt through each day, to create my best possible BEING.  Everyone may not appreciate who I am, how I respond to issues, however I give what love and encouragement I can to each person who touches my life.  


  1. What a good philosophy, Carly! I need to be more like you and concentrate on the things that bring joy to my life and help me forget all the fear and worry that crowd my mind about my health and my family's health.

    I'm so glad to have met you through Ravelry and Chronic Stitchers.
