Spoilt for Choice

I’m torn.

My spinning calls to me: The bobbin on my wheel says “10 minutes a day helps the knowledge to stay”; the yarn on the spindle itches for me to try drafting-without-parking again. The two singles are excited about how they’ll look when they finally get together.

My knitting waves from my bag: One of my knitting WIPs has a dead-line; the other has a longer cable-needle that would help the first move faster. This is a typicial knitter’s dilema, enough to paralyse you with procrastination.

Meanwhile my crochet sulks in the corner of the room. It yearns to be re-united with its hook that went AWOL in the kitchen. It knows its time will come; but is impatient for when that will be.

But my head is full of Patchwork Quilts: fabric, colours, patterns, cuts, seams, wadding, quilting.

Deep breaths! Smell the fibery fumes.

When I came back from a Quilters workshop last Saturday I was completely on a high, buzzing with the all I had learned, been exposed to. I didn’t know what craft to turn to, to “come down”.

Housework won out in the end, would you believe!

    Two many hobbies spoil the projects! Only joking, I’m looking forward to seeing the fruits of your workshop!
