Gardening, walking, cooking, hanging on my computer, playing with my dog
Knitting & crocheting,
Entourage, tunes on my iPod
My mom & dad were very into hobbies when I was a kid. My mom did a lot of needlepoint, counted cross stitch, sewing, baking, bargello, quilling, and baking. My dad loved photography and film developing and woodworking. They introduced me to exploring different hobbies. The first thing I remember making was a little needlepoint smiley face. My mom framed it and hung it in our camper.
I love to knit and crochet small projects such as: hats, mittens, socks, stuffed animals - things that give me a quick sense of satisfaction.
I've recently gotten into more textured knitting projects: interesting stitches, modular knitting and even shadow knitting. Whatever I'm making - I like to have fun with it!
