Avoidance

I was out at a 'playday' today at a friend's studio. She has this huge space, great facilities, I'm quite jealous... or I would be if she wasn't so good at sharing it. We did a variety of things...starting off with making fabric postcards.

Now, I have been avoiding fabric postcards like the plague. No, no, no, I don't want to do that, I would mutter...but when someone gives you the wherewithal to do such a thing under your own nose, it's churlish to say no, right? So I made, not one, but two, playing with some of the yarns I have bought over the...emmm...years, now that I've worked out that I can couch them with a boring old free motion foot. It was FUN.

I have to wonder what other wonders I've been avoiding because I edit what I want to do and what I don't. I did that with dolls, resisted them for years. I did the same with painting. I have to say that that lasted a lot longer...nearly twenty years...and I only learned how to paint and draw because my son dragged me kicking and screaming to my first class. Now, I don't know how I lived so long without painting in my life.

What are you avoiding today, then? Oh go on, try it...you KNOW you want to!! Just think...you might even like it!
