I grew up in a crafty family, so I've been crafty since before I can remember.

When visiting my dad's parents, I remember playing with some blocks my grandmother had for planning out quilts, and when visiting my mom's parents, I remember being fascinated with my grandmother's knitting.  We had various crafty things to do at home, like the Woodles - they were small-ish, flat wooden shapes that you could paint and glue together, and make magnets and things.  Play-doh was banned in our house, though (we had carpets).

In grade 5 we did a unit on transportation and one piece of homework was to make a vehicle out of things found at home, and while my classmates all brought in tissue-box cars and things, I had an airplane made out of a spark plug, a tongue depressor, a Popsicle stick, and some Lego wheels.  (Dad helped with the materials acquisition!)

Mom liked to make things with plastic canvas, then later really wanted to learn cross stitching, but wasn't sure how to go about it.  When I was 11 I went to a summer camp and learned some basics of cross stitch, and came home and taught mom.  (And boy, did she ever run with it!)

2015 will be the year I tackle my massive WIP pile.  I'm hoping that by the end, anything that is a WIP now will either be finished or frogged, and that the new WIP pile (from 2015 projects) isn't as big as the current one is.

I also have a lot of design projects coming up that will all need samples.  It's all very exciting! ^_^

I know you love rainbows, but that is one stunning blanket!

Thank you!  I don't mind using these colours, I just think it was the wrong choice for winter crafting. lol

Fantasticmio, how many granny squares did you crochet this year?



Oh gosh.  I stopped counting around 900, I think.  And that was back in September.  I'd guess well over a 1000 by now.

The outside colour is actually a very dark purple. ^_^

Thanks for the link!  I can't buy anything right now (I had a bit of a 108 ball accident on Cyber Monday, you see...), but I'm bookmarking it!

There's no pink in a rainbow, so...  Pink!
