For the last two days I have been receiving wonderful packages in the mail. First, I received a lovely Yarn Swift by Beka. LOVE IT!!!! The next day I received a Ball Winder by Royal and felting pad. Doubly, LOVE IT!!! I can’t tell you how wonderful it feels to finally getting all the tools I need to accomplish my artistic goals.
Not in a thousand years, have I ever thought I would have such access to my desires. These items may not seem much to others, but they are huge to me. My dreams for my artistic ambitions disappeared a long time ago. No ones fault. Just having to be practical and responsible for my choices in life. Sssssssssllllllllllloooooooowwwwwwwllllllllyyyyy, I have been acquiring ways to be artistic but when material possessions are needed to accomplish them, money always gets in the way. So, I collect pieces of my ideas over decades of time, in hopes that one day I may have all the materials I need to accomplish one of the many ideas I have, to outlet my expressions. For years, I have hoarded various paints and brushes in hopes that I will someday afford the canvas. I hoard beeswax in hopes of affording molds, kettles, drying racks, and more to create dipped candles and soap. I hoard books in hopes of affording private lessons(on various topics) and shelving. Now, I hoard books, fiber, yarns, needles, a spindle and a spinning wheel in hopes of affording felting/spinning roving of varigated colors, equipment/supplies to dye, a variety of spindles, more yarn, more needles, felting/spinning/knitting books and lessons, oh yah! and more shelving.
I owe my ability to obtain my goals solely on S., whom is crazy enough to want to spoil me and tries his best to do so, in so many ways. I wonder when he will realize he is fostering some serious materialism issues I have and make it all go away. Hope not too soon, as I would really like to get to the point of creating something useful. I am on my way to figuring out socks. I met a lot of lovely woman meeting at my Local Barnes and Noble to knit on Tuesdays. They are patient and helpful. I was shown four different ways to cast on when I totally forgot how to cast on. Boy! It has been way too long of a summer! S. even spoiled me by coming with and being my time keeper. I could only spend an hour whilst B. was at TaeKwonDo.
I am so excited!
