at the moment I am noticing again, that my hobbies change with the kind of work I do. I am working in a fabric store, teaching sewing classes, doing some organizational things and selling fabric. I really like this job. Its fun and I am surrounded by fabric, sewing and people who love it as much as I do. I get lots of new ideas, but at the same time I do not want to spend all my free time sewing, instead I am picking up cooking as a hobby again. It seems, when I am surrounded by sewing things at work, it looses some of its pull as a hobby. I noticed that back when I was in fashion school… until then I never had spend so little of my free time sewing.
Do you know that feeling? When doing something different at work, sewing, or anything else you like to do, fills a lot of your free time, but when working in something sewing related free time is filled with other hobbies? Did anyone of you ever turned a hobby into a job? Or maybe a job became a hobby after you changed work?
The good thing is, that I do not work full time, so I have quite some free time, that I can fill with cooking and whatever I feel like and some sewing.
I am not able to stop sewing completely. I get itchy, when not sewing for long.
keep sewing and smiling
