The view from where I knit

Last night's dogwalk through the innerwest took us past a store which intrigued me from the outside.
(Checking out their website reveals it's not to my aesthetic, I'm more of a post-1960s gal, but some readers might like. Although if I ever have to design a depression era feed-sack quilt for a show, I'll know where to get the materials).
The point being that the very fact that I was intrigued got me thinking.
Thinking that it wasn't so long ago that you'd find me at a nightclub at 4am.
Then seemingly the next thing that happened was I woke up and thought.."hmm...quilting".
Or in my case..."hmm...knitting".
And I wondered what happened in the intervening time between those two moments.
Turning 40 I think.

Hey, you know if you ever wanted a feed-sack, this is the place to go:

And thanks for your comment, too! I forget sometimes that other people might be reading it, and you totally made me feel like my general waffling may actually make sense outside my own brain. Cool..

I like that your partner is the anonymous Goat, I think if I had to go with The Badger if Matthew were to have an animal alterego. Maybe Badgermonkey. They're his favourite.

I really enjoy reflecting on how my life priorities have changed, and why. I started knitting again because I wanted to make jumpers for a friend having twins (for the twins, clearly!) and I remembered how much I loved it - and it somehow grew and grew from there (don't do these things by halves). For me, being settled and happy in my home life helped too, and wanting to do something that makes others happy (as I tend to knit for others) makes me contented. And I like that.

(Who knows what a shrink would make of all of this!!)

And I'm partial to some of that quilt shop's 30s fabric...noooooo not another craft hobby/obsession!
