So yesterday I took my own advice and decided to get out and meet people. I joined a local artists/crafters group I found through Meet Up. I was surprised by how many women were there! I would guess there were 12-15 women, of varying ages, and they meet weekly, which was a definite plus for me. One of the women retired after teaching art in elementary school for thirty years and graciously offered to give a basic drawing lesson to all of us. I have always wished I could draw, so this opportunity excited me greatly. Above is my end result of our lesson. I'm already looking forward to next week. If you don't have any real world artsy-craftsy friends, go getcha' some. Blogger friends are awesome, but they're hard to knit with.
