I have always crafted, it comes from being an indoor kid! I learned to sew when I was about 4 when my mum used to help us embroider handkerchiefs to send back to England to our relatives. Then I learned to knit, crochet and have done 'something' ever since. Isn't it great that us crafty types can now come out of the closet? I recall it was so daggy to make anything by hand - now its tres trendy - YAY!
