My Favourite Things – 2

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.

  2. I enjoyed reading your post and seeing all your lovely creations, particularly those gorgeous beads. I too love crafting. It’s my relaxation but could easily turn into an obsession if I let it,

    • Thank you for commenting. The bead course was one of the most challenging. I bought the course for my nephew’s 21st birthday and decided to go too. When I saw the high stool, the naked flame and the fact you had to move both hands in a different way, I really wondered if I’d be able to do it, but I did and I wear a bracelet of the beads every day!
