I have just written on my own blog about how my relationship with craft has changed since I have started my teacher training. Before, it was a fun past-time, it was a diversion and a creative outlet. It was an excuse to get together with friends and natter, eating homemade yummy cakes. It was a luxury, not a necessity.
Now that the only crafting I manage to do is done at our sew make believe meetings, it has become much more important. It is an enforced two hours-a-fortnight of relaxation. It is a much-needed break from thinking about lesson plans and reflective practice. So when I saw this pincushion ring by Wychbury just after writing my post yesterday, it spoke to me! You can buy one at Folksy or Etsy. Wychbury also have a blog you can read.
