Sewing and all things craft

When I was 13, my mum got pregnant with my little brother. My grandma was big into knitting, and always brought her knitting bag with her when she would come and babysit me and my other brother. I was inspired by my grandma to make a knitted blanket for my baby brother so I made knitted squares out of scrappy bits of wool, and eventually I sewed it together. I was really pleased with it and I was so proud when we used it to keep my brother all toasty warm. That was 22 years ago now, and I have no idea where that blanket is now 😦

Unfortunately, life got in the way, and my interest in making craft-type things had to take a backseat. It was still firmly on the backseat until I saw a post by Jennifer at Winter Owls (http://winterowls.com/2013/11/28/snipping-and-stitching/) where she had made some really cute animal brooches with material and buttons she had in her collection. She has inspired me to start making craft things again and I’m really looking forward to going to the craft shop in town and buying my first supplies, I’ve already got so many ideas for things to make! Plus, I’m looking forward to sharing them on my blog. I’m so grateful that I saw Jennifer’s post πŸ˜€
