Moments 14/20. Quarantine.

I was saving the first Moments post of the 2020 for something special, something that I will want to remember. Now I believe we will all remember these weird times and moments – weeks spent in the state of uncertainty, fear and hope that it will all be over soon and we´ll be OK. My days abruptly changed from packed with events, meetings, deadlines and never ending email threads to quiet and low-key moments at home and nature. I still work, I would say even more right now than before quarantine, handling tasks for which I never had time and space before, but now my pace is different. I think like everyone else out there I have my moments of fear when the future looks uncertain and bleak, but I keep repeating to myself – That will pass too. I have been through storms in my life that seemed like a deadlock and I always came out of them and when looking back, I was grateful for them for teaching me something about myself that I would have never discovered if not for these bumps in the world. I hope you also find comfort in these quarantine days that will definitely become a history lesson of the humankind.

Living in a place that thrives on the tourism industry, we are definitely hit hard, but there is one advantage to all this – gorgeous natural spots that are now completely empty and ready to be explored. I went to my “secret” beach that very few people know how to access and enjoyed a long walk with zero people in sight. It was breathtaking. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did and it will bring some sunshine into your life. Stay safe and healthy.

I hope you will have a wonderful week!

Wood Houses Book

I love real things. Nature instead of TV; wood instead of plastic; cotton, silk and wool instead of acrylic; books instead of iPad. Real, natural things always inspire me to knit and crochet. There are moments and places which make me reach for my needles and a squashy ball of the cotton yarn.

This architecture book is one of my favorite. And one of the most inspirational for me.

Perfect Place for knitting and crochet

I like to get in the armchair with a cup of tea, get the Wood Houses, read, look at the pictures and think about the house in which I would love to live and knit some day. There definitely should be my knitting place. Wouldn’t you love to knit here?!!
