I used to cross-stitch a lot when I was a teen but that was the extent of my crafting. Many many years later my mom gave me a couple of scarves that she knitted and I told her she simply HAD to teach me how. So a fateful day in December 2009 she did, I fell in love with it, and I haven't stopped since. I dabble a little in crochet as well. And I do still have a several-years-old unfinished cross-stitch baby bib among my crafts too.
