Hobby or Obsession

Most of us have a hobby of some kind, and I guess for a lot of you reading this, it is some sort of crafting. But when does a hobby turn into something more - like an obsession?

Obsession: an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person's mind.

Hmm, does it mean that I have a knitting obsession if I look at a field of sheep and think - he looks like a pair of socks and she would make a nice shawl? What about the fact that I give directions to people based on where wool shops are, a bit like men do with pubs! Ok, ok, so I may be a little bit obsessed with knitting and yarns of all kinds, but my stash is confined to one room, oops sorry, one house!

So, is your crafting an obsession, and if so, is it a bad thing?  I don't think it is a bad thing, after all, no one gets hurt by it (unless they get run over by a another delivery arriving), and it keeps me out of trouble - well sort of - but that's a story for another day!

Now you remember my dragons, Lorna & Lena, well they have been complaining about not having enough space to play in my office (when their work is finished of course). So Lorna has organised a sale on the website and wants to encourage you to buy lots so that she can clear a bit more space.

Pop over and have a look and then tell all your friends. Believe me, there is nothing worse than a sulking dragon!

I will leave you with this acronym - if you have an obsession, it might apply to you. SABLE

  1. Lol - definitely an obsession - poor sheep! x

  2. Not sure if I'm obsessed or not, but my signed name is "sewing" as I'm always doing something, either sewing or knitting etc :)
