It’s happening. I may be turning into a semi-hipster.
It’s the craft thing, see.
It started with an innocent workshop at the local library.
Crochet your own granny square. I always wanted to do that. There was one space left. And so, braced as I was against an earth-shattering hangover one Saturday, I learned how to crochet (a granny square).
A year later, I have over 60 and I’m still crocheting.
Next, I caught myself planting succulent cuttings in shells.
For a while, there was also some baking happening in my life. But we won’t talk about that.
I got craftier.
I bound banksia pods in aged old bamboo steamers, then attached orchids.
I hung shell strands from trees. Sketched stuff. Contemplated pom pom pictures.
Then, I found myself googling “How to make a rag rug”.
I may need help.
