What does your craft space look like?

Messy!!! ( most days) I love my vintage caravan and when tidy I am content to sit in there and craft away.
Ofcourse my crafting takes place all over the house too but the kitchen table is my main workbench


Which tool or craft supply do you use the most?

Wool, card,( I make greeting cards)


What do you craft along to?

mainly music as I need to concentrate on a pattern. If I am making something straightforward I will watch programmes/films on my kindle.

Favorite Craft

That is a difficult question but I would choose knitting.
I make many different items but love shawlettes and handwarmers the most.

Joelle's Top Crafts

If you could learn one new craft or make anything, what would it be?

needle felting

I look longingly at felted items especially miniature animals/birds, they are so realistic and cute.


Who are your crafting heroes?

I believe all the busy crafters out there need credit for the hours of dedication and work they put into creating a piece. I take my hat off to them from the well known to those like myself who beaver away quietly.

If I am to name a few of the well known ones....
