Sunday afternoon, 4:00 p.m. typically finds us at, Naked Brewing, our local craft brewery, for crafts with the amazing Michelle. Not yesterday.
Yesterday, we were there for a pint of Ground Effects & Missionary Impossible, but NO yarn crafting. Snuggled with John in a super cozy 2-person chair, I didn’t take a single swipe at myself for not joining in, for opting to settle back & watch the creativity unleashed before us. Where I once would have berated myself for being a sluggard – or worse, for being only partially involved – I savored the show. FACT: neither of us had the slightest interest in yarn art – although we did come up with some dandy ideas for kitty toys involving yarn & dangly things!
I am grateful to be at a place where I can choose to join in or to watch without self-recrimination. Where I was once a whiz at emotional self-flagellation, now I am a grand master of great times!
To yesterday’s crafters, men & women & kids – we’ll be back among you next Sunday, brandishing scissors & wielding hot glue guns as Michelle steps us through making felt cacti. Thanks for the great show of talent & ingenuity & for always being part of our creative community!
