Rissa Peaceroot of Pretty Impressive Things, also the Editor of CQMagazine online, is also on several of my bellydance lists. This current issue of the magazine is a tribute to their original editor, Nora Creach. what I didn’t realize until reading Rissa’s editorial, is that Nora, or Noora, was also a dancer. she had some marvelous insights on bellydance in the “good old days.”
I have a desk job — my stitching hobby is also pretty sedentary. I love bellydancing because for me it is a way to keep moving while having fun with other women (and men) of myriad shapes and sizes.
And that brings me to a question — who else do I know hiding a secret identity? There is an entire website gallery of bellydancing librarians. There are more of us than you might guess!
Dancing stitchers – show me your shimmy! Do you make your costumes? Do you avoid “real” sewing like the plague? How do you combine your hobbies, or do you?
