I was Uncool before Uncool was Cool

14 years ago, I was a junior high girl who did things no other junior high girl did:

  • Sew
  • Knit
  • Card wool, spin, and felt
  • Dye with Kool-Aid
  •  Bake ‘artisan’ bread
  • Garden – herbs and vegetables

Yeah, I was totally Uncool. After enduring years of questions like, “Are you crocheting? Oh, My grandma does that.” I have arrived at being Cool. It is a weird feeling. Now I am kicking myself for not being on the front edge of the crafting and DIY tsunami. Coulda had one of the first knitting blogs on the block!

Maybe, just maybe, I am at the forefront of a head covering movement? If the Modesty Movement is a good indicator, it might happen! In about 10 years….

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
