The first time I tried punch needle I gave myself a deep stab wound in the index finger with the tool that nearly hemorrhaged and made that finger unusable for quite awhile. Incidentally, that was also the last time I tried punch needle.
Hello everyone! Let's just jump right into the intro, shall we?
In a nutshell: I'm a 19 year old nursing student with somewhat gothy tendencies, residing in the all-too-sunny state of Arizona. My general interests include medicine, writing fiction, reading, cats, thrift stores, and sarcasm. Lots and lots of sarcasm.
Craftiness: My main passion is crochet, which I've been doing since I was in grade school (thanks to an equally crafty mom). Up until now I've relied entirely on other people's patterns but I decided it was time to bite the bullet and start trying some patterns of my own. We'll see if that works out or not. My other passion is cross stitch. Again, my work has pretty much been from other people's patterns but I'm starting to brainstorm a couple of my own pattern ideas. Also I love to design and make jewelry but I haven't had much creative drive for it lately so it's been awhile since I've done any. I'm really looking forward to participating in the boards and hopefully finding some inspiration for all sorts of projects!
