Craft along with Tomiko & Meinhilde from Kiku Corner

Tomiko and Meinhilde
Toronto, Canada
T: accountant; M: dietitian

What are your hobbies?

T and M: travelling and cooking!

What are your favorite crafts and what's your craft space like?

T: My favourite crafts are knitting, printing, and sewing. I keep everything in a wicker basket that I can lug around with me; my apartment is too small for a dedicated craft space!

M: My favourite crafts are crocheting, sewing, beading, and quilting. Like Tomiko, my apartment is small and I don't have a dedicated craft space. I keep my work-in-progress in a canvas bag that I take to craft circles, but all my supplies are stored under my bed!

What do you craft along to?

T: Books on tape, especially Harry Potter (notice a pattern here?)

M: I like watching movies or shows that I've seen before, so I don't need to pay too much attention (e.g. Harry Potter!, Lord of the Rings, silly comedies)

What was the first project you ever made?

T: we've been crafting our whole lives, but the first thing I remember making peg people out of wooden clothes pegs.

M: I remember going to the basement of my primary school for craft time during recess. I appliqued some scrap hexagons on to a piece of linen that I eventually made into a pillow.

What are your favorite items to make?

T: Useful things, like those I can wear or use in my house.

M: Useful, beautiful things like scarves, hats, quilts, or jewelry. I also like making things for friends and family.

Which other craft blogs do you love to read?

T and M: we love Purl Bee for anti-cat-barf yarn inspiration.
