New Winter Hobby

I’m sitting here at 7.30pm and it’s pitch dark and howling with the wind and rain outside. As my friends will know, I took up sea swimming as a stress reliever, which is fine in the summer! 

An impulse visit to Hobbycraft in Truro took me upstairs to the Art Department today. When you sew for a living, it is no longer enjoyable so I need to find something else, as the sea isn’t as inviting on a dark, wet October evening.

I’ve not drawn anything properly for 30+ years at school, so I have decided that I would like to explore this further. The Art teacher managed to put me off any kind of artistic endeavours!  I started sewing after a similar break, so I’m getting a little worried now! There’s something about a blank piece of paper that makes me nervous, but I guess the worst that can happen is that I have some paper to light my fire with! 

I’ll let you know how I get on with my new winter hobby….
