Hi there, my name is Donna. Go grab a snack and your favorite beverage, get comfortable and settle in. Lots to read. Lots to see. I am Craft Obsessed.
My long time love has been macrame since the early 80′s. The urge to tie knots comes and goes but eventually I always go back to it. So many beautiful things to be made by just tying different knots with the fingers.
Since I retired over six years ago, I have learned several new crafts. Jewelry making was the first I tried. Without a clue how to begin, I took quite a few beading classes starting with simple stringing. Then advanced to beadwork. I found out I LOVED Peyote. It was so magical how the little rows lined up.
Next, I learned to crochet and have found it quite relaxing but addicting. I doubt it will replace macrame as my favorite craft but I certainly did enjoy it when I was doing it.
Two years ago I finally tackled something I had wanted to learn for YEARS!! Quilting. It was something that had been on my Bucket List a very long time. My fear of cutting off a finger had stopped me. But after hearing about the Klutz Glove and buying one, I got started. I spent all of 2011 and 2012 sewing and quilting. And loving it.
For 2013, my plan is to continue learning something new each month, hence the name of my blog. Do visit often. You never know what will grab my attention and yours!! And I LOVE to throw giveaways. Check back often.
And while you are here please try your hand at some of my tutorials. Thanks for stopping by.
