"The fact that so many other people have blogs now makes it so much more fun, and such a fantastic "talk to me!" sign to hang around my own neck, without having to go the extra step of actually risking face to face interaction- which never goes as well as I'd like, somehow."The way she describes her learning-to-draw process is exactly the same is my learning-to-sing-from-Mom experience. Then, there's the big about friends.
"It reminds me a little of being in school- in primary school you are forced to be friends with kids because they merely live in your neighbourhood, and school throws you together."Or because Mom liked them; funny how she seldom liked the friends, and later boyfriends, I picked. But I know most parents try their darndest best on the spot, rather than try to be vituperative, and mine have been trying to make up by encouraging me in my weaving.
It turns out Taueret started her fibre geekery 11 days before I did. I feel that "maternity ward at the same time" thing again.
