    I’m a dabbler.  I do all sorts of crafty type things.  Crafting tends to be like therapy for me.  If I’ve had a bad day or am upset I can pick up one of the many projects that I have laying around and work on it and it always makes me feel better!!

    Crafting (Sewing, etc.) has enriched my life in more ways than I expected. While I don’t have time to haul my machine to sewing clubs, or take classes to interact I have the web. I enjoy swaps and reading and participating in blog hops when I can. I’ve learned so much, I’ve connected for a moment or for longer, and all within my doable time parameters. I love it! I’m a dabbler. I love the quilt, sew, embroider, draw, craft, cook, garden. I love it all and I’m hoping to learn to use inks on fabric and paper, make paper, screenprint. Being creative, pardon the corniness, feeds my soul and makes me feel good in so many ways. I feel part of something huge and artistic and worldwide and it makes me feel like I matter outside of my small world of daily life. Connected to everyone who feels the same way.
