Billie Holiday

Gypsy Slow Down



Really I don't dislike to cook, but what you cook is eaten so quickly.  When you sew, you have something that will last to show for your efforts.  ~Elizabeth Travis Johnson

I've taken up a new hobby this year. I love embroidery. 

Witt and I decided we didn't want the tv to be on every evening, just for our favorite shows, so last night we sat on the couch listening to Billie Holiday while Witt read and I did my sewing and we drank hot tea. I felt like we were about 95 years old but it was really nice to slow down and just be, with no loud noise. We watched our shows later on but I kept doing my embroidery because I'm hooked and because I was working on these two kitchen towels for our future new house.

I also brought my embroidery with me to work and sewed while I watched Bennett at his gymnastics class. My stiches are sometimes all over the place but I've learned a few basic ones from youtube and I feel quite accomplished.








Are you excited about any new hobbies?
