I'm with you, bananaleg. I never thought much of handmade goods until I became a craftster. Now I can't get enough. This website is the reason I learned crochet!
That bag is flippin' cute and the quilt is really lovely!

You guys probably remember all of the BAD and cheesy crafts of the past (egads, when I look at the macrame owls I made in the 1970's, I am horrified! Smiley )---there are sites and people that love it, no offense, but I think Craftster is more modern and takes a more edgy approach to "crafting"...no tea cosies without irony...where else can you find crochet poo and zombie dolls? Cheesy

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.

I LOVED those owls! They had texture and personality!

But I think it is the 'edgier' feel to crafting today that makes me feel so at home. I've never been one much for Laura Ashley type stuff. I follow the line more like Joan Jett and Pink.  Smiley

Woohoo; I finished another UFO!  Christmas of 2009, I made Emmeline aprons for all the ladies on my Christmas list.  I made one for myself first, to get a feel for the pattern, but when I got to the hand-finishing I set it aside because mine wasn't pressing.  Just finished it. Smiley

I had a macrame owl hanging over my bed. My dad made it and it was pale yellow and had a real tree branch worked into it. Grin I think my mom still has  it in a closet somewhere and she keeps threatening to give it to me!
