Long and Short reviews Weekly Blog Challenge 1.22.20

Three weeks in, peeps! Yay. Today’s topic is one I struggled a bit with: New Hobby I’m trying or would like to try.

Most of the hobbies I currently have all involve some use of my creative brain. I love refurbishing and decoupaging old steamer trunks; I’m a wiz at scrapbooking; I paint; I design greeting cards, and I embroider, knit, crochet and do needlepoint.

That’s a whole heck of a lot right there because there are only 24 hours in a day!

One thing I’ve always wanted to try, though, is quilting.

I love a good looking quilt. A trip through Amish country decades ago started my love affair and appreciation with hand-sticked quilting.

It’s not easy, not by a long short and I think you have to be good in math ( which I’m not) in order to have all the little pieces and squares the same size, and be able to make sure the pattern fits properly together. Plus, it’s takes time – a lot of time – to make one and I’m the type of gal who, once she starts a project, get’s a tad obsessed with finishing it. I know this would lead me down a rabbit hole of time management problems with regards to my writing schedule.

But it sure would be satisfying to know that the quilt/comforter covering me and hubby at night was made by my own two hands, so maybe….

Let’s see what some of the other authors in this challenge are currently thinking up: L&SR

Until next time, peeps ~Peg
