Yesterday when I was in the Mackintosh Church, the Macintosh society had music playing in the background. I have no idea what it was apart from it was most definitely classical. As I sat in the pews knitting, I felt really relaxed, inspired and productive. As I sat thinking and watching others creating hand knits, I decided that I wanted to find out more about the Charles Rennie Mackintosh, to get a feel for what it must have been like to be around in those times.
Today, as I settled down to finish some sewing, I searched YouTube for some classical music. Anything really as I have no idea what is what or who is who relating to that genre of music. I found Four Seasons by Vivaldi, pressed play and sat at my sewing machine. It was bliss. I concentrated well, was more focused and worked faster that I have ever done. Perhaps it was because I wasn't up every 3 minutes clicking play on another tune, I don't know. What I do know is I enjoyed the experience very much.
I am now finishing off my urchin bowls complete with felt counting pennies while listening to Chopin's Nocturnes - well thats what is says in the title. I have no idea if that is right or wrong.
I am also head over heels in love with knitting Marin by Ysolda Teague using Ripples Craft sport weight yarn.
Today is blissfully chilled and stress free. Life should not be lived at 100 miles an hour... and mines is plodding along at a wonderful pace.
All is good in my world... How is yours?
