Re: Book Giveaway: Animal Hats

Oh my goodness! There's a fox hat! My parents have two foxes in their back yard, and my teenage sister (an avid knitter) is obsessed with them. This is me commenting with my fingers crossed!

"simple quilt and patchwork projects for sewers" -- that is SO me!

Re: Grandma and the Beautiful Button Hat

First off, let me say that your grandmother would be so proud to know that you have made a career out of the crafts that were her hobbies! Talk about a newfangled idea...

My grandma made elaborate quilts of her own design with whimsical themes: dinosaurs, motorized transportation, sheep, butterflies...The animal-themed ones she sometimes donated to our local zoo to be auctioned off. She didn't teach me how to quilt (she taught my mom who taught me), but she did teach me that something as functional as a blanket could also be art as well as a vehicle for charitable support.

Re: Crafting Your Personality

I absolutely agree that your craftions reflect your personality! I like to dabble in all kinds of crafts, and I especially enjoy finding ways to combine them. That's because, in any area of my life, I don't like to be pigeonholed or typecasted. I need to be free to create spontaneously in whatever medium I'm in the mood for without having people say, "But that's not what you do!" I also love creating functional items that serve a purpose in my home. That reflects my practical mind and my tendency to nest.

So I guess the moral of the story is keep creating, because no matter what you make, your craftions speak louder than words!
