I confess. I am a serial crafter/hobbyist. I become obsessed with a particular craft/hobby, quilting for instance. Buy everything I need for it, well, maybe some things that I don’t need too, and obsessively work on it for several years, then I move onto the next craft or hobby. So far: quilting, spinning, weaving, natural dyeing, rug hooking, embroidery, cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, tatting, dulcimer playing, gardening, herbs, sewing, 19th century Reenacting . . . And the list goes on! This may explain why my office/craft room and my basement look like a huge yard sale in progress. I do cycle through my various hobbies/crafts, so I don’t just do them one time!
