I'll never forget how I really got into crafting. Sure I was cross-stitching, but I wasn't making things from scratch. My friend, Melissa, gave me a beautiful crocheted scarf for my birthday. It was stunning and meant so much to me. I wear it all the time, and every single time I think of Melissa. She showed me how to crochet and that lead to knitting, sewing, and all the other things I have learned to do in the last six years.
So she not only gave me the gift of a wonderful scarf that keeps me warm when I walk the dog at night, she gave me the gift of crafting...how amazing is that?
