I like to make things, sometimes; I’m occasionally crafty.
I started this site so I could have some where to talk about the crafty odds and ends I do – because I don’t know too many people who do the same kind of things. It’s nice to have somewhere to record my progress, share my triumphs and my failures.
Mostly, I crochet and tat. UPDATE: I started knitting at Easter 2012.
I crochet because I like making toys to give to people. I tat because I love the process, the complexities, the cleverness and the community. (Even though I’m really a bit of a lurker in the community).
I’d like to learn to use a sewing machine at some point. Currently they scare the living daylights out of me. There’s still time though. UPDATE: I started using a hand-cranked sewing machine in 2011
There’s no huge point to anything I make, mostly I make things for the joy of making them, or learning something new.
I also keep a scrapbooky blog, full of lovely things other people have made. I use it for inspiration. You never know, you might find it useful too.
If you feel like commenting on anything, please do. I don’t bite, and it’s really nice to hear what other people think, or what other people are making.
If you’re really curious, I’m a graphic and interactive designer, and I live in the UK. Hello!
