it's coming along very slowly; and I tell self that it's to do with having been very busy at the office and a work schedule that has been different, but then I get to thinking about these words 'very slowly''very busy', by whose standards any of these? and in a flash I'm looking down at myself and I find I'm smiling and shaking my head for entertaining these thoughts; there is nothing 'very slowly' about it, nor has the office been 'more or less busy than usual', it's all in MY head, apparently I have unspoken expectations and when things don't happen 'fast' enough - even though I haven't defined the outcome or time frame - I feel prone to pass judgment!
light bulb moment: this is how the mind tricks you into following a dead end path resulting perhaps in dissatisfaction, how you could experience a sense of disappointment for no reason whatsoever, no reason whatsoever.
so, the piece is coming along nicely, exactly as it should be going, period. I particularly like how the thread changes colours, from black to blue to green
