'Been a while ...

I kind of fell off the blogging wagon there since I moved into the new house from the suite I had been renting last October. I haven't stopped crafting although, due to demands on my time made by University and renovating the main floor Suite to be suitable for my MIL's mobility needs, I haven't done more of an herbal nature than occasionally water those plants which I had that survived overwintering. 

I have, however, made a foray into the fibre arts ... picking back up my crochet hooks as well as learning to spin and knit. It's been a very positive venture which I am benefitting greatly from. It has been scientifically proven that such rhythmic and repetitive tasks such as what I am doing lowers stress levels by increasing the brain's production of endorphins such as serotonin and dopamine. Very useful for an agoraphobic who refuses to give into the condition. 

I opened a Ravelry account to keep track of my WIP's and completed projects, as well as gain access to a variety of groups I can learn from (and let's not ignore the free patterns).

My boneset is just about ready for harvesting and drying, so I'm thinking that its high time that I dusted off this blog and got back to posting here.
