I'd love to join the swap but I'm taking up a huge project so I can't Tongue
I'm going to be making a Doctor Who quilt for myself. Not sure when I'll get started but I'll probably use it as a Research Project considering the fact that the tenth Doctor must wait 'til it's warm again before I can paint him Smiley

I think his acting credits would be great first, just because most people know him as that and are probably looking for those the most. Reel them in with the acting credits, keep them for the stitchy, crafty, humanitarian goodness!

I agree.

You know, I was going to write something complimentary on everything here then I saw the Guinea Pigs and my mind went blank due to all the cute! <3

When I finally get around to my quilt, I'm going to do the "pillow quilting" method. This way, each square is backed, filled and finished on all sides before assembly and you can easily make a reversible quilt, which is what I want to do Smiley I just it's as easy as the book I have makes it look!

It's nice reading about everyone's crafty history Grin
Ooh bunny I love buttons! I have a small collection myself but my mom has a decent sized one. Though she does envy one set of buttons I have. They're some mother of pearl buttons I got off a ratty looking shirt that I got for $1 at Goodwill just for its buttons.
My mom says the first thing I sewed was a hole in my pillowcase at around seven and said shame on me for not mentioning my other aunt's knitting or my crochet.  Embarrassed
My dad's older sister knitted and I was fascinated with it but could never get the hang of it. When I was about 12 my mom taught me the chain and single stitch in crochet and for a while I would make coasters because it was all I knew how to do. Then about six years (or seven?) ago I picked up a copy of Reader's Digest Guide to Needlework and played around with other stitches but never really could get the hang of them. I want to say it was about three/four years ago that I finally was able to get a hang on other stitches and started making things other than coasters! Cheesy

Now I may have to make myself one. Thanks for including the mini tutorial! Kiss

Ah, I forgot to mention my first crafting endeavors! Tongue
My family actually didn't take a lot of pictures as we were growing up. Mostly because my dad and I hate having our pictures taken and it was hard to get the three of us, me and my two siblings, to sit still long enough to get a photo.
But I do remember learning to make things by watching my mom, maternal grandmother, and my aunt (mom's sister).
My grandma used to give me construction paper, safety scissors, and glue sticks to make whatever my heart desired. She also used to let me wind her bobbins and thread her sewing machine for her. I also got to pass her the scissors, pins and markers as she needed them. My grandma made more than a fair few of the patterns she worked from and the things she made for us were always nicer than what we found in the store. I still have the muslin bunny wearing a flower print cotton dress that she made for me when I was two or three.
My mom used to let me use her glue gun (under VERY close supervision) to help her make various little decorations. We still have some that survived us playing with them but most of them were lost to being roughly handled by small hands. She didn't like too much help while she was sewing but I still loved watching her.
My aunt crocheted a lot and used to let me help her wind her yarn into balls. She also let me do a few stitches on some of her embroidery work but I didn't like it that much as a child. I did, however, love helping her with yarn and plastic canvas things. I have a plastic canvas purse floating around somewhere that I helped her make.
For me, crafting is a way of carrying on a family tradition of things made with love for those I love.

Pretty quilt! That's something I hope to attempt next year. I have fabric that I bought specifically to make myself a quilt and even bought some batting that was on sale but have yet to make it. And those baskets are fabulous! I need to make myself some organizational stuff.
