Treasury Tuesday

maRRose - CCC --- Treasury Tuesday, Crochet Coasters-03There are many reasons why I knów it’s wise to write my “Treasury Tuesday”-posts in advance, but I hardly ever do this.
Today I’m regretting that ……

Because, I’m just sitting here, not knowing what to say/write after having just heard the terrible news of the bombings in Brussels – so close to home.
My first impulse was to not write anything at all, and skip this week’s “Treasury Tuesday”.

But you know what? However hard this is, I refuse to let bad things get to me!
My heart and thoughts go out to the people affected by this horrible act, but in my little world (and corner of the internet) I will try my best to focus on the good and positive – even though this might seem impossible at times.

Creating, feeling connected to the lovely group of makers that I know, spreading kindness, is the only thing I feel I’m capable of doing.
I think – and know – I’m not the only person whose spirit is lifted when creating/crocheting, so let us continue to do so.
Let’s create, make our little corner of the world a more beautiful place, spread some happiness through our work!

I know I’ll be taking Mila for an extra long walk, and be doing some much needed and meditative crocheting ……
