In an effort to find a new hobby where I could be create, I sought out a few options. One of which is crocheting and knitting which I’m not wild about, and the other was embroidery. I was inspired after seeing a video of a girl who found a half-completed embroidery project while thrifting and she finished it in honor of the person that couldn’t.
Since I had just moved to New Hampshire and had no friends, it was no better time for a new hobby. I started by ordering some kits on Amazon.
I then inherited a lot of materials from my mom, my boyfriend’s grandmom, and thrift stores. I expressed my interest in embroidery and got a few gifts for Christmas that year to add to my collection.
I can’t draw so I think my best work is with the projects I get that already have templates or that I can trace. I love the artwork people can create by hand but I’m just not artistic enough for that.
Right now I’m working on a pillow design that I thrifted! It has a lot of space to fill in so it’s been taking me a while. I already have my next project in mind but I like to finish one before starting another!
Do you have any hobbies?
