Warning: A totally cheesy post:
My blog is not about love life.. but you'll see here bits and pieces of my love life : A.K.A my love affair with yarns! yikes!
I have a change of heart...
My husband used to say that it will only take some time before I shift to another set of items to collect. It's been 4 years now and the only things I collect are still craft related. He's still hoping though..
I know that my love for crochet will remain, and I intend to keep this hobby until the end of my days..
But I know, that something in me has changed. I have been trying to come up with the correct words to describe how I feel. I revised this post 3 times, each revision longer than the previous, well, I think for this post I already captured what it is that I'm trying to share.
I was browsing my library for patterns that I can hack to complete a project that I was working on.. out of curiosity, I pulled out a random book and found out that , it is the first time I'm actually opening that book.
Why did I buy this book? Scratching my head, I pulled out more books and magazines, and decided that , I am ready to let go of another big chunk of stash.
Now, I asked myself.. what exactly do I want now?
I'm seeing a lot of people taking the plunge.. designing here, designing there.. improving their stores, offering classes... quitting their jobs to make crochet their work, It's getting really exciting . I think crochet is here to stay..
But what about my dream?
It has been many years that I hold on to my dream.. and yet.. now that it's more feasible..I am beginning to let it go.. slowly, a chunk of stash at a time..
I guess, one of the reasons is that, I admitted defeat. When I planned all these, there are only a few people willing to take the plunge. Now competition is rampant, and I cannot really keep up on those.
2nd most important reason is that I woke up to my reality and realized that whatever it is that I have right now, is more important, than what this dream have to offer :)
I have a family, no amount of yarn can replace them :)
