“Money can’t buy happiness but it can buy craft supplies and that’s pretty close.” ~ Unknown
It sounds as though the challenge is focused upon typically female crafts, this is not the case, all home crafts are welcomed.
DIY is not my forte and neither is woodworking; however, I do have a family friend, our retired vet who regularly spends his time carving out small animals and other items in nature.
The carvings are my Christmas gifts.
This particular challenge is a good one for me – As a child, my grandmother taught me to crochet, and my mother passed on her hand knitting skills; as an adult, I learnt to machine knit.
A gift for my birthday from my late husband was one of the first computerised knitting machines for domestic use. Unfortunately, a few years ago I gave up my machines, a decision I now regret.
My small baby garments are the only reminders I have from my machine knitting days; however, I do occasionally pick up my knitting needles.
Two hand knitted garments completed and one waiting to be sewn up.
As some of you saw in a previous post, my last couple of weeks have been spent knitting Joey pouches which I understand are always needed by the wildlife hospitals in Australia, and not just in the bushfire season.
