I've been alluding to a lot of changing going on at Stitch Silly. I think today I am going to let a few out of the bag. The biggest one is that quite frankly, I'm burned out. I took on too much recently and put to much pressure on myself as a result, I've been sick and stressed out.
What's that mean you ask? Well, I'm still figuring that out. One thing is definitely decided, I am making sure I practice what I preach and am making an effort to spend more time with my family and for myself. That means hitting the gym more! How will this effect Stitch Silly? Well for now, that means I will probably slow my production down as I will be spending fewer hours in front of the sewing machine. I realize that this is a drastic change from my before Christmas push to increase my inventory. To that I say, things happen, priorities change. I actually have a few things I would like to post, but I'm in no hurry.
As I mentioned last week, I have taken up crocheting. It's quite different from knitting, but very interesting. My first project is a dish cloth, you know start with the basics, then practice, practice, practice! I took a few shots this weekend as I was starting out. I've since gotten a nice swatch going and hope to continue the progress over the week.
For those of you who are working a "regular" job in addition to your online shop and are mom's too boot, how do you keep sane? What's the right balance for you?
