“It may not be important for everyone to be creative, or it’s just something we do instinctively; or to save money by making your own clothes, wooden bowls, furniture, etc. Mom sewed, knitted & embroidered for economical reasons before cheaper items flooded the western market, and I just took the habit of doing the same.
There’s a satisfaction that comes from having made things yourself.
Looking at a bookshelf and thinking I made that (and it’s still standing even filled with books, damn I’m good). Feeling warm in a sweater I made, not to mention it’s slimming to knit: you can’t eat with both hands busy! Some may say it’s relaxing, but it’s not a good idea to start working on crafts as an outlet for frustration. That’s when mistakes happen. I do find it meditative in some cases, depending on what I make. As for “being a goddess”, I leave that job to my pantheon. I’m a human and mortal.” – SG 2021
