New obsession and recent acquisition
I'm now so into sewing. I hadn't touched a needle and thread since primary school homemaking course (I don't think there is such a class here, is there?). I used to really believe I'd never ever sew in my life as a kid so I always got other students who like sewing to complete my work for me in school.... But here I am, so obsessed with it. Whenever I'm at home, I'm looking for clothes that I never wear anymore and cutting and sewing. I found it realIy calming, and I think I can learn to be more patient too. I do need patience as I'm learning to drive!! And after bit of bleeding fingers, I managed to make a tool bag!! Looks really thick and bulky, ugly and wonky but I'm pretty proud that I've finished something that I never thought I would be able to!
And my recent acquisition, Green garnet. I never knew there was a garnet other than red! Been trying to collect garnet because it's my mum's birth stone, January. So this will end up being in her collection box. Mine is aquamarine, March but haven't seen any that's in a rough state, before polishing and affordable:(
