Tagged – Belated Response

I had not realised how exhausted and off the planet I’d been at the end of 2007. I’ve just found out that Marie-P had tagged me in December, and I’d not even noticed it 😳 Well, it’s never too late to make amend, so here goes:

The rules: Answer the following on your blog and then let five other bloggers know that you have tagged them to complete the meme.

1. When did you start to create and make craft?
I was raised in a home where needle, thread, fabric and sewing machines were always around. I used to make clothes for myself when I was a teenager and help my mom make outfits for her clients. In 1992 I bought a small cross stitch kit for my neice for Christmas. She asked me to help her to stitch it, and I got hooked.

2. Why did you start creating?
I was just doing what was natural in my environment. I also enjoyed it very much.

3. Why do you create?
It keeps me happy, grounded and it’s another way of expressing my self.

4. What do you create?
Mainly cross stitch. I also knit a little, sew outfits for myself and my daughter, make frames for my finished pieces.

5. Has this changed since you began crafting?
I’ve sewn a quilt top – ready now to be quilted. I’ve been ‘creating’ our home over the last 5 years by refurbishing our home inside and out. Cross stitch continues to be my obsession, though.

I’m tagging Sachiko, Wyora, Barbara, Harmien and Kim S. -if you haven’t done this meme already. Have fun!

Before I go, let me share with you the ornament I’ve created with the Fair&Square Round 4 exchange piece I received from Kim S. Thanks, Kim for a gorgeous addition to my redwork! I just love it 😆

Wishing you all a Happy Stitching Weekend!

Certified X-stitch addict and lover of tea, fabrics and beads. I work in the vocational education and training sector and in my spare time potter around in the garden growing roses. I'm mum to two adult children of whom I'm very proud.
