How many hobbies do you have that you truly keep up with? Writing, film photography, sewing, knitting, baking, drawing, gardening, making plush toys, flower arranging, ballet... a brief history of my fixations. Every time a new one comes along I'm convinced it will trump all the rest: why haven't I done this before? It's so fun! Must buy supplies. Must scour Instagram for other people who are into it, too. Must check every book out at the library about it. And so on, until a few weeks or months pass and the said hobby has fallen off the radar.
The last few days I've been playing around with embroidery. I've been collecting inspiration and threading and rethreading my needle, and daydreaming about possibilities. Possibly there will never be another post about embroidery again on this blog, but maybe there will. Either way, I'm learning, will be just fine.
