YKYACW everyone in your office looks at you at the first mention of a holiday door decorating contest. By the end of the day you have a design sketched out and a list of required supplies...and you only have to buy two pieces of fabric because everything else is in your craft stash. Then you spend most of a day stitching a girl snuggled in bed, complete with a stuffed Santa doll, felt pillow, and a fleece blanket. And that is only for the bottom third of the door!
I've been drooling over the beautiful creations on this site for months. I'm especially impressed by the people who can see an ordinary object's component potential and turn it into something unexpectedly fabulous.
I'm one of those people who dabbles in all sorts of crafts, primarily painting, crochet and, most recently, sewing. Except for crochet and counted cross stitch, I tend to work without specific patterns and just go with the flow. There's something so relaxing about the simple act of smoothing paint onto a piece of wood, the feel of yarn slipping through my fingers, and drawing a needle through fabric.
