Continuing with my occasional blog series detailing my favourite things, this week I’m talking about learning new crafts.
My nan taught me to knit and crotchet when I was seven. In fact she was always experimenting with craft work and I think she gave me the bug.
At one point in my life, I was painting glass and silk to sell at craft fairs. I’ve also dabbled in pottery, art, bead jewellery making, ribbon Christmas decorations, quilting, dough craft and rag rugs.
My latest craft ventures have been lino cut pictures, glass bead making and silver clay jewellery. I think it is safe to say that craftwork is another thing that defines who I am and you will definitely find some of these crafts appearing in my books.
