The Craft Meme

Today at my Practical Design workshop, Marilyn asked us about the various fiber arts we've been involved with over our lives, and especially what we did first as kids. It was fascinating as we went around the room talking about the various crafts we'd explored and how we landed on quilting as an art form.

And that started me thinking that it's the perfect topic for a meme. (Ooh, I'm originating one!) If you want to play, just copy and paste the list below into your own blog entry, and BOLD the ones that you've done at some time in your life.

I'll bet we've all tried most of them. But maybe not.

So-- BOLD the items if you've done the activity MORE THAN THREE TIMES (that is, more than experimenting or making one thing and abandoning the craft...) And post here in the comments so I can go look at your blog to see what you've done!

Hi

Just seen your blog for the first time - thought I would let you know what I am into - embroidery (vintage 40's and 50's patterns are my favourite - not cross stitch!) crochet and knitting, although I have done a lot of felt making, papermaking and applique/ bonding and layering type things. I mainly now make things I am trying to sell in my online shop (when it gets set up!).

Will pop back again
