I've been cross-sttiching for over 12 years and just loved it but wanted to branch out into other crafts. I became a mom in December of 2010 and while I was pregnant I wanted to learn how to knit so I can knit her cute little hats and clothes, etc. Then the passion expanded to crocheting and I haven't been able to go a day without working on a certain project. It's so relaxing and rewarding!
