Welcome to day three of the A to Z Blogging Challenge!
Did you know that 2278 bloggers are participating in this challenge? WOW! Last year I think there were just over 1700! I am #905:) We will see how many complete the challenge. I sure hope I am one of them!!!
One of my favorite crafting pastimes is cardmaking! I so enjoy taking paper, ink, stamps and glue and be able to create something truly beautiful. Stampin' Up! has helped me so much to grow in this crafting passion!
Recently my paper crafting grew from cardmaking to making this fun Spring Sampler to put in a frame on the wall. Each little square is actually a miniature card:)
I also enjoying knitting and crocheting. The baby afghan above is crocheted using the Tunisian stitch (also called the Afghan stitch). I make a lot of baby afghans using this pattern. It is a great way for me to relax while also producing handmade baby gifts for family and friends.
Doilies are another favorite for me to make! I love how you can take inexpensive cotton thread and a crochet hook and make something truly beautiful! My mother and grandmother used to make crocheted tablecloths but I'm not sure my attention span would allow me to finish a table cloth. Doilies are doable for me:)
I could share more but am trying to keep my blog posts for the challenge a little shorter than normal.
What is your favorite craft? Do you craft to create or relax?
Tomorrow, D is for???
