Washing the dishes, doing the laundry, those are the times I see my mails and blog entries written, unfinished craft projects progressing, new ones laid out. Fabrics combined, parcels packed... even my craft room is tidied then... mundane moments give time to think and I highly appreciate those opportunities to let my mind wander.
But having to catch up with enormous loads of laundry as well as dish washing last week my mind was a bit too well endowed with idle moments and went from wandering to jumping nervously, unable to focus, having too many ideas, experiencing restlessness. When the week was almost over I was desperate to let some creative steam off and engaged on a kind of hamster wheel crochet project... a wee dull, going round and round and round but fortunately having come to a rather pretty end this morning and now being blocked.
Ahhhhh, I feel much better now!
Still I don't remember who inspired me to make this cake though... please, if you are reading this and know it was you, tell me. The cake was one fine piece of matcha delight.
Besides this marbled matcha cake a lot more lovely green things were happening last week, my old green Liberty friends got some new playmates, Paula sent me off to vintage button heaven and the first, freshly picked green tea of 2007 was drunk... if only I haven't had so much time for thinking, it could have been such a nice week...!
Stay tuned for the hamster wheel and some lovely vintage haberdasheries, hope I will be back tomorrow.
