On learning new things…

I enjoy learning new things. I’ve tried paper quilling, needle-felting, and a bunch of other hobbies that never really stuck. I enjoy the learning process and seeing if it’s something I actually want to do. Most often that not, I end up spending around $50 to learn something I end up not liking. Very few things actually stick. Of the most recent undertakings, embroidery is one. I also found out through customizing my Trikky that it may be something I’d want to do occasionally in the future because of the enjoyment and the result. I’m really concerned about results when it comes to trying anything new. I know it’s not that logical since when most people try something new, they rarely get wonderful results. I’m impatient, demanding, and a whole lot of illogical when it comes to the process.

Only embroidery and the recent Trikky custom came out with results I’m really pleased with. Therefore these two relatively “new” ventures become a part of my short list of hobbies. I’ve started embroidery this January and have loved the results from it. As for the Trikky, my first try and I’ve thoroughly adored the process and the amazing results.

I made a really short list of things I want to try for the relatively near future:

  1. Doll-sized Plushies – I tried needle-felting and it didn’t do what I wanted it to do. I think sewing proper softies/plushies are next on my list. I want to make mini dolls for all my dolls in all kinds of animals/characters, etc.
  2. Doll-sized Furniture – I’ve always liked Victorian style furniture and I can’t find any decent doll-sized ones for the price I want to pay. I bought a miniature furniture making book and I hope to learn from that. This is far into the future. I can’t even get started on this until the basement is finished and I reclaim my studio. Yes, imagine Rosey with power tools.
  3. Pottery – I took pottery classes in high school and I remembered loving them. I hope to take this up again one day. This is a pipe dream.

All of this is speculation at the moment. I’m always up to learning anything and item number one is the most likely to happen sometime this year. I’m always on the lookout to try/learn something new. I try a ton of things and most of them don’t stick. If it does stick, I tend to keep going back to it and continue to add it to my giant projects pile.
