"I am a crafty person with multiple interests and love to give new techniques a try. I crochet. I knit. I have also started machine knitting.
I also used to do needlework (cross-stitch, embroidery, tapestry).
I sew. I used to make beaded earrings. I have also done papercraft. As I said I love to try new things.
I love having lots of projects on the go (crochet and knitting) with various skill levels. Which is great for variety but it means I take longer to finish each project."
