Abandoned Hobby

Before I started working full time, I am spending my free time creating some crafts. I know how to sew clothes, pillowcases, bed covers, and bags. I can crochet Barbie doll’s dresses, table covers, hats, and purses. But my most favorite of all my hobbies was cross stitching. I have done some pieces of projects. I did some for my friends and relatives.

However, when I started working, I can’t find the time anymore for my hobbies. Much more when I started to work online. Yesterday, while cleaning the house, I noticed that one of my cross-stitched projects was slightly deformed. I took it down from the wall and I found out that the frame needs to be replaced.

I felt some sadness while looking at my angel. I wish I could have time for my hobbies again. But I know that even if I want to do my hobbies again, I know I won’t be able to do it this time.

  1. Saying about a cross stitch. I, thanks to this occupation, came out of a terribly big depression years ago. Then it became my hobby. Now I do not see the goggles with the glasses. My hobby and passion is now photography.

  2. Wow…! I didn’t know you are interested in so many things (which I love too btw as you probably already noticed…;)))… 🙂 This is a very cute work and yes, there is a problem with having enough time for everything since lately I’m spending a lot of time Here…! :/ 😐 I will have to change that, it is really time and energy consuming so you might reconsider it in those terms too… 😉

    • I am not sure. I am writing for another site and I need to focus there especially with the current competition in the online field. That is the place where I get most of my online income. I also have my own blog which I need to update frequently. Lately, I started to give Virily more attention to see how far I can fo with the site. I have a Forum which is equally rewarding. Coming June, I need to enroll in my law studies. I just don’t know how I can make time for my hobbies.

      There are two things that could possibly change the situation. One, that I get promoted to a higher position with a higher salary and two, that I may be reassigned or get another job nearer to my home.

  3. What an adorable little angel. 😃 Working online feels almost like a hobby. 🙂
    My mother used to cross stitch too, but she quitted because aging made it harder. The hardest part is at the very beginning: threading the needle. 😅
    I wanted to start crocheting, but I never got the time. Well, it’s more lack of will than time, but it doesn’t matter.

    • Thank you for the compliment, Sabtraversa. Yes, I also consider my online activities as a hobby and a source of additional income. But it seems that it is only me who can appreciate this stuff. Yes, aging is another thing. Perhaps in the future when I have more time after retirement, I could try gardening instead.
