I honestly haven’t given much time to my spinning, or knitting, this week as I have had a bad case of tennis elbow. I get this now and then when I over do knitting, so I tend to turn my attention to other creative lives, such as sewing.
I did spin a little today…
Friday I started my third Shirt No. 1 and for it all sewn together. I am now working on the finishing and the neckline. I have really been enjoying sewing and I am learning so many new things. I do believe sewing is going to be forever in my life, which I don’t mind one bit.
I also spent the morning cleaning out the rest of the craft books and miscellaneous crafting items that are destined for Goodwill. I have started making a conscious decision not to buy for the sake of buying. Before I commit to buying anything new I am asking myself if I “really need it, or just want it”, which is making a huge difference in my spending habits.
I am learning to take one day at a time and to enjoy what I am doing instead of trying to make others happy by posting what I think others want to see. I love many things and enjoy many different hobbies. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I am no longer concentrating on just one thing. Besides, if I did just concentrate one one thing, how boring would that be !
