Great Post

Last week I went to the letter box expecting only bills and look what was waiting for me a lovely surprise from Gail. She did this stitchery at Glenharrow Stitching Day and as she is a lover of blue did it again in blue so I was lucky enough to get the red one. It is really lovely to receive a stitchery done by someone else. I will now have to do some serious consideration on what I will make of it. She also sent me a needle punch pattern which is something that I haven't tried.

It is REMEMBRANCE DAY in Australia so at 11 am let us all give a thought to all those who have fought and died for our country.

I have also been tagged by May Britt.

The rules are: Answer the following on your blog and then let five other bloggers know that you have tagged them to complete the meme.

1. When did you start to create and make craft?
I expect I started sewing when I was around 16 I did it as a subject in my final year of school. I had always liked making things I spent many hours of my childhood with my father who was really handy making things in the shed. I still have a little hammer my father gave me.

2. Why did you start creating?
I love the feeling when you have made something from start to finish I think it is the feeling of accomplishing something.

3. Why do you create?
Once again that great feeling of starting and finishing something.

4. What do you create?
I mainly sew but I do love making other things I made a wooden bird cage you can see the edge if it in the photo I took in my post of 27/10/2007. I am really happy that my son is good with his hands we have made several things together e.g. a stand for his aquarium. I made the lead light windows for our old house - mind you it was only 4 windows and they were quite simple.

5. Has this changed since you began crafting?
Not really if I see something and think I can make it I will have a go. I am not very good at drawing so if I see something I like I very rarely change a pattern or it's colours.

I am supposed to tag 5 people which I find really hard as most of the people I would have tagged have already been tagged - I am leaving this open for anyone to join in.

What a gorgeous redwork stitchery. Great progress on your Journal quilt. I'm waiting to start mine until we buy a new house and then I'll record our first year in the house.

Your red work is very pretty.

Thanks for playing along . I have not done much more on my stitchery. I'm in a kind of making christmas gifts mood. So I'll save it for later.

I want input on my website:
It is a color-reading site. spend 20 minutes reading the poems, then e-mail me. I want to know if it "works" for you, and if you have to read aloud for meaning. If you have a decoding issue you may have the first fluent reading experience of your life.
