I love arts and crafts.....the first craft I learned was knitting.....some 45 years ago from my grand-mother. I still remember the light blue yarn I used for my first project - I wanted to make a dress for my doll...with my grand-mother's supervision of course. I can also still remember the way I was pulling so hard at the needles that everything fell apart. My doll never got her blue dress but with my grand-mother's patience and my perseverance, today, I can knit almost anything.....as long as I have a pattern. I also love to sew and quilt and I am always ready to learn new techniques.
