ould you laugh if I told you I have craft ADD?!?!?! I go from one thing to the next. I love trying new things. But sewing is what I have done the longest. I took Home Economics in junior high and made my first jumper (ugly) and tie for my dad (I doubt he ever wore it!). I tried sewing after my first child was born but quickly gave up with patterns that were too hard. Then we moved into a beautiful country home (in the city) with lots of oak woodwork windows that needed some window coverings we could not afford to buy all at once, so out of necessity, I made them. It was just simple hems I made with tension rods to go in. But that was the beginning and then I learned to find easy patterns and starting making clothes for me and the kids and even a bathrobe for my husband. I rarely make clothes any more now ( love to garage/thrift sale – another hobby, huh?). I love sewing quilts and will make aprons here and there and little blankies. I’ve made pillow cases for gifts. I started making quilts when I was pregnant with my twins, about 21 years ago, and I still enjoy doing that.
I have also gotten into making cards, stamping, dry embossing, knitting, scrap-booking, cross-stitch (which I did start in high school but rarely do any more – have numerous unfinished projects) and making bracelets, which I still do. There’s things I’d like to learn how to do like making soap and candles. And, you probably could show me a new craft and I’d want to give it a try!
