Fall Hobby

I think I am finally ready for fall. I am so sad that I can't wear my summer dresses but I have rediscovered all my beautiful sweaters. I want a pumpkin. I want Thanksgiving food. I want to wear my new yellow coat from J Crew.

I know I have said this before but I really need a new hobby. A girl I was working with yesterday was talking about knitting and it got me thinking about something that has bothered me for a while. I feel like I don't know how to do anything. I can sew a button but that's about it. I can't really sew, knit, crochet or anything. The problem for me is trying to find something that I will like well enough to keep doing. I also don't feel like buying a lot of yarn and knitting needles and having them sit around this apartment just taking up space.

What I would really love is to go to a quilting bee . The idea of sitting around with a bunch of other ladies trading gossip while making a quilt for a baby sounds so awesome to me right now. I have no idea what it takes to make a quilt. I should look into that.

there's this awesome place in Atlanta that lets you do just that - sit around w/a bunch of ladies and gossip while you make stuff - knit, sew, crochet, quilt, whatever. It's called Knitch and it's super-cute, and right behind Ten Thousand Villages.
