I have appreciated everyone’s comments encouraging me to blog what I want. After all, that’s why we’re here. I think I’ve come up with a direction that feels natural to me.
I’ve decided to drop out of Year of Projects. I have loved being part of the group, but my participation has started to feel rote. Also, focusing on productivity is not where I want to be right now.
I’m going to restructure my blog around special interests. This will include knitting, sewing, and other fiber arts. It will also include movies, books, the paranormal, traveling, music, and whatever I feel like. I’ve been reading old posts, and most of this isn’t new to my blog. I will restructure the categories to reflect this.
I’d like to get back to a couple of old special interests that never went anywhere. One is learning the fiddle. Another is (hula) hooping. I will also be including the occasional thought on Tudor England as I will be taking a lecture series next year. Expect to see a combining of special interests, like sewing an Anne Boleyn blouse. (Already planning one.) Do not expect to see historic costume. I am super impressed with people who recreate period clothing, but I am not interested in doing it myself.
I wish I could share a pic of what I am working on right now, but it’s top secret. Instead, here’s a link to an old post from when we visited Cape Breton for Celtic Colours in 2019.
