Domestic Crafts

Rhonda Hetzel in her book The Simple Home: A Month-by-month Guide To Self-Reliance, Productivity and Contentment says that August is the time for domestic crafts, sewing and household linens.

I have really stalled looking into this goal as my sewing and craft ability is non existent, I don’t even know how to thread a sewing machine and I’m not sure that I want to. What I do enjoy is cooking, a little bit of gardening and popping the occasional bunch of flowers into a vase. Also I occasionally do and will more often, put creative energy into gift wrapping and cards. But I would far rather shop than sew, I enjoy shopping and savour the whole experience. I love to spend time in little boutiques cultivating a relationship with the proprietor. I love to support local designers and buy kiwi made where possible. I love to shop well. I greatly admire and support local craftspeople both through purchasing their goods and their services but sadly I have no skills in this area and no time,  patience or longing to cultivate any at this stage, however should the situation change I will update.

This may be one goal that takes a while to tick off the list.
