On Saturday me, my mom and two knitting club work colleagues went to the fashion and textile museum to see the Kaffe Fassett quilt exhibition. It was AMAZING!
Now I'm not a quilter and don't (didn't) have any inclination to become one, although I was very kindly gifted fabric to make a Halloween quilt and I fully intend to make it! But now I'm looking at fabric in a totally different way and I'm seriously worried that I might become one.
I don't need another hobby. I already have enough with scrapbooking, knitting, crochet, embroidery and cross stitch. All of which require a huge stash, and I have no room for another stash, nor can I keep a sewing machine permanently set up. Which to be honest would be the only way I would do it on any sort of regular basis.
Hobbies are funny things, we love them, but feel frustrated when we don't have time to do them or with any regularity. I'm lucky enough to have a desk in my office/craft room that is permanently set up for scrapbooking. During the year I can easily rotate between project life style story telling and one little word, then in October it's full of October Daily stash and in December it's set up for December Daily. You can find out about these projects on Ali Edwards website.
I don't have a good way of storing my scrapping stash so plan to use as much as possible so that's not an issue. No point in collecting it!
Knitting and crochet is done while watching tv, thanks to a very tolerant (and possibly slightly deaf) husband. The clink clink of knitting needles can be annoying if you're not used to it. He is also super tolerant of the multiple project bags that surround my chair, HA.
I'm going to share more on this blog again, I miss blogging and sharing my crafting.
