I haven't lost interest...
I'm having a creative renaisance, or late mid life crisis, or something. I had a total hip repair in January and by December it was so hard to walk anywhere I started knitting and crocheting, broke my sewing machine back out of it's decade-plus hiatus. I discovered I kind of LIKE those things. As for sewing, it was cool to see all that expertise, the hard learned techniques and slowly aquired knowlege didn't slip away but sat right in that sewing part of my brain, ready to be used again. Then after surgery came therapy, and then back into night shift work and I've been busy with things other than blogging, man,
Honestly, I've been so taken with the needlecraft stuff that I pondered, should I start another blog for that? I've already photographed one sewing tutorial and could do another in a jiffy, my personal pattern pieces already cut out (sewing is FUNNER than back when I thought you had to go to the store for a pattern every time, though I do miss fabric stores). But my attention does wander, and if I started a needle works one, then (probably any minute) GARDENING will be what I'm all about, then cooking or house renovation and so on.
Should I dump this and do a what Barb's doing blog? Incorporate it all? I think that question has been corking up production here for a few weeks past the halt the surgery put on everything. I have a certain fondness for this place and don't want to pull the plug yet.
Also I've been feeling like I should be out there taking fresh photo's to edit, but I just haven't. Night shift really sucks the life out of your life, unless you don't let it.
