~no demands~

"He who makes great demands upon himself is naturally inclined to make great demands upon others." Andre Gide I am still here...I am... making no demands upon myself...or others... Thank you for waiting... It is summer...everything moves a little slower... days are longer... naturally... Oceanside Organic cotton color(#2)...Drift.. a pale,pale ocean green...naturally Match it with the rolled neck jersey from this book ... and one special little girl will be very happy... That is if I can stay focused... and keep working... find my natural rhythm again... But I am making no demands... I am enjoying myself...naturally.. and you should..as well... It's summer...

Such a lovely sentiment! I tend to put far too many demands on myself - it's good to be reminded not to all the time.

Oh, this post soothed me so. Between the beautiful colors and photos and the notion that we should not put so much pressure on ourselves. I love it! Thank you for reminding me that it doesn't all need to be done in a day.

Beautiful photos and such perfect yarn for summer. I love a slower feeling summer myself...trying to not make as many demands of myself...well, except in the running department. Living in Canada means the best running happens in the summer :)
