Dianne blogging…..so a quick post to share a common issue I bet we all have. I am going to a wine county weekend with a group of friends of friends, 6 couples in total. I know maybe 2 well…
Undoubtedly the discussion eventually will get around to what we all do, retired vs not, etc. etc.
I will say I am into fiber arts since retiring as a pharmacist. They will say, huh? I will say well, rug braiding and rug hooking. They will say, huh? I will repeat and when they finally ‘hear’ braiding, they will say, “oh my (fill in the blank) used to do that”. I will say, great. and then what? The conversation usually dies. What is your experience? Better than mine? Unfortunately I did not bring any fiber art other than sock knitting to show and tell.
Unless they pick up on the rug hooking part; then I have to listen to all the comments, we hookers have heard before. What do you do? As a relatively new rug hooker, this annoys me more than the braiding issues.
Stay tuned and look forward to your comments….Dianne
