I learned how to knit 2 wks before my wedding 49 yrs ago, because everything was done for the wedding. I did counted cross stitch alot about 30 yrs ago. Somewhere along the line I learned to crochet, and 6-7 yrs ago I learned to quilt. I do more quilting than anything now, but I crochet and knit some, too. I always have several things going at once. That pretty well sums up my crafting. Oh, I also reside in Crystal Falls, MI part of the year.
