All about me…The first few times I have tried to write this, I start with how many kids I have, what my husband does…But is that really me? I suppose it is about me, but it isn’t describing who I am as an individual.
I like to think of myself as being a little bit crafty.
I love to read and often read books a little bit too fast to fully digest everything that is in the books, meaning I might miss a few parts, and that really stinks. I love history.
Right now, and actually for quite a few years, I have been very interested in the American Civil War. I find it fascinating that people were that engaged, or were so passionate about a cause that they went to war within their boundaries.
For now, I am trying to find a place in this world to call home. What I mean is that I have tried to fit myself into places I don’t think I necessarily fit. Maybe I will fit in those places later, but for right now, I am going to try and work on my rugs. I think designing them and hooking and/or punching them is like finishing a 1000 piece puzzle. I am a student in this process. I learn as I go. And I learn by teaching myself.
I have taught myself how to use natural dyes on yarn as well. I hope to get better at it as time goes by, but for now, I am content in teaching myself the art of natural dyeing. I find the chemistry behind natural dyeing fascinating. I wish that I could take organic chemistry and learn more about the process. I can always dream.
Does this all define me? Who knows, and in the end, who really cares. This is me.
