I know, I know, the Quickie Question is usually a monday thing. But as the year winds to its close, I like to reflect on the year we’re about to leave behind. I think it’s useful every now and again to sit down and think about what we’ve learned and what we’ve discovered, and somehow the turning of the calendar page makes a nice reminder to do just that.
What was my crafts highlight of the past year? Definitely getting the opportunity to start this blog. Not only do I get to sound off here about Stuff I Know and Care About, but I’m learning a lot, too. What’s more, I love the responses you leave, getting to know more details, seeing other points of view.
Another was sitting in a hospital waiting room. Mr. Twistie was having a couple stents put in because of his ongoing heart ills. I was too nervous to do much of anything, even though I knew he was in good hands. But my friend who came along and did the driving sat there quietly crocheting as she sat next to me waiting to hear how things went. I got a bit misty when she finished making that cute beret and just handed it to me. Little things like that can help.
Oh, and everything went just fine. Mr. Twistie came home the next day looking better than he had in months. He’s doing great. But every time I put on that hat, it reminds me both of how lucky I am that he’s doing so well, and how lucky I am to have a good friend who took time out to hold my hand on a rough day.
So what about the rest of you? What were your big craft moments this year?
