Good evening! Hi. I’m Bagel.
This is me, attempting yet again to convince myself that I need to do something regularly and actively to engage with the internet in general. Perhaps even with you. And most especially, with myself.
I’ve a rubbish memory, and this is as much to document what I do and when, as an attempt to share with the rest of you. But if you’d like to follow along, please do so!
I do a LOT of different things. I have an addiction to learning how to make things. So far, I have a fair handle on:
Tatting (lace making. not tattoos. though I have some of those, too)
(I’m too lazy to go upstairs and get a picture right now)
Wire Wrapping Jewelry
Watercolor & Acrylic Painting
Probably other things I’m forgetting about
Like weaving! I have a loom. And Spinning. I have multiple spinning wheels and drop spindles. And occasionally, I dye some yarn. And sometimes, I try my hand at writing. Not just blogs, either. I’ve been trying to work on this novel for years now. I play at pencil drawing and some minor digital art, as well.
Well. You get the picture. My house is basically a craft store. If you ever need to borrow something, let me know. I probably have 13 extras. I’m hoping to spin with Team Allons-y Fiber Arts for Tour de Fleece this year, where fiberistas all over the world get together (without actually getting together) and spin yarn out of wool or whatever else we want to spin. I did it a couple of years back and it was a blast. But I haven’t touched my wheels since. This is a problem that must be rectified! I like to at least dabble at each of my hobbies every couple of years or so, to keep in practice.
My current obsession is chain maille, so if you have need of any special projects, let me know.
This is mostly just an intro of this side of me. I’ll go into more detail on other aspects of me soon. I promise.
It’s been wonderful to meet you. Drop some of your favorite obsessions into the comments!
