Hello from Down Under!! I am originally from Oregon and hope to return there sometime in the next two years with my Aussie husband in tow. I will be 50 in a few months and have been crafting most of my life, much to my mother's disgust. She can't understand why you would want to make something or use re-purposed supplies when you can buy something "brand new" probably from K-mart! LOL! Horses for Courses, I guess!
Anyway, I do embroidery, beadwork, card weaving and lots of other crafts. I am trying to learn tatting and crochet and needle felting. I may be laid up soon with some back surgery, which will require me to have some bed rest, so I thought I might get involved here. I have just finished four days in bed with back spasms. Boy, that was nooo fun! I basically could not use my right hand (I am a lefty) so I got no crafting done, but spent lots of time online getting ideas, etc. I will be back to work tomorrow, I guess, for awhile. I see the surgeon on the 13th of March to see about surgery, so wish me luck.
I hope to make lots of friends here!
