I retired on 1 April 2015, April Fool’s Day. I can’t believe I was a fool to work for so long – if I didn’t have to eat and pay bills I would have retired much, much earlier – but the necessities of life kept getting in the way.
So, am now doing what many retired folk do – caravan around the country for a while, chasing the warmer weather, reflecting on life and my ever growing bucket list.
As my craft passion is bordering on the obsessive, when we arrive at any little outback town – I always try to attend that town’s craft group meeting, which is normally held weekly (usually on the day before I arrive, or just after I’ve left!). Doing this broadens both my craft skillset, and hopefully helps to broaden theirs as well. However a chat with like minded ladies while knitting with a good cup of tea accompanied with some local gossip is like a group hug for my soul. I really do enjoy them.
Creating is a continuous learning experience. The more I know – the more I realize I don’t know. So the more I have to do. Most of it is around knitting and felting, mainly small(ish) objects, and I would probably achieve far more if I didn’t have a Pinterest addiction.
So, thanks very kindly for taking the time to drop by to see what I’ve been doing, and hope your crafting makes you as happy (ecstatic, frustrated, angry, jubilant etc.) as it makes me. 😢☺😊😀😂😠😭
With warm regards,
