The earliest craft I can remember making was a plaster cast of my hand. It was the summer before we moved to Illinois, so I must have been seven at the time. We were attending Bible School and Mom was one of our teachers. When she died a few years ago, my sister and I found those casts carefully wrapped and tucked away in her cedar chest.

My next memory was when I was ten. We had returned to Oklahoma on vacation, so Mom had given me some money for shopping with my aunt and cousin. After buying the newest Trixie Belden mystery, I still had some change left and there were all these beautiful colors of thread (actually embroidery floss) for only five cents each, so of course that's what I bought with the rest of my money. When I brought my finds to my Grandmother's house, she asked what I was going to do with the floss. At that point I didn't even know what embroidery was or how to do it, so Grandma taught me and my cousin beginning that very day. She had some new dish towels that had come in her Dux soap, so she pulled those out. Next came patterns from her Workbasket magazines. I don't remember using hoops although I usually do now. If I track down any of the tea towels, I'll try to add photos later.

This year I'm just going to post as I go since it's easier to add photos that way.

I got into crafting when I was probably around 7 or 8 when my mom taught me how to do hair wraps/friendship bracelets (same concept). I remember sitting on the floor with my mom on the couch. She would be doing hair wraps in my hair, and I would be making friendship bracelets. I loved making something from scratch that hadn't been anything before. It was very empowering and liberating. I don't think I have any pictures from that time, but at one point about half of my hair was covered in the hair wraps...

My list this year contains a lot of embroidery. I haven't done any in a while, but it seems to be my happy place. I eat really like working with DMC floss in general: cross stitch, embroidery, friendship bracelets, etc.

Also, I started a 365 project/challenge on March 12th (365 Days of Flora in Watercolor), so my list will now also have lots of watercolor paintings of flowers and stuff.

I'm in again - altho' I still need to finish posting 2014!

I don't remember a time when I *wasn't* crafting, altho' it was never a self conscious effort.  It was just messing about with stuff.  What I learned from several generations of skilled and passionate people was to just pick stuff up and give it a try.  I've always been curious and tactile, and that's always been encouraged.  

One of the clear memories I have is learning to knit with my grandmother.  A former Home Ec major, she had a scientific turn of mind, and had researched teaching knitting to left handers.  We struggled through the instructions she'd found until I could produce a respectable potholder.  When I began knitting more seriously in my 30's I could still feel the sense memory of sitting in my little chair, struggling to figure out how to hold the needles.  Ironically I learned much later that she herself had never knit (altho' her mother had) but she'd consciously taught herself so she could teach me a process I now do intuitively.

I am grateful that I am relatively free of the family obsession with perfection.  My satisfaction comes with the physical feel of the materials.  So I'm much happier, with a wider range of crafts, and at a much lower skill level, than most people I know.  It's a gift, I tell you!

There are several things I know I want to do this year, so I'll post some of my planned items.  But I don't like to dictate too much to the muse, so I'll add to my "completed" list and post thumbnails here as I go.

Wheeee!
flourless chcocolate torte... alpaca cowl...birthdays cake...Russian onion dome hat... Trio of orange hats; corkscrew, Russian and fuchsia... Roving mitts... Stenciled tote bag... Baba Yagas belongings...mermaid gloves....Millionaires shortbread/nutella rice crispies/lemon pudding cake....Black wave hat....Thank you cards....Soup and bread....Earrings....Copper planter....Pulled chicken and rhubarb crisp....brittled peanuts....colorful cowl....covered notebooks....lace bookmarks...."Delft" blue picture frame...color block and fish scale scrappy hats.... Pie-a-palooza...Cookies for carpenters...Plants in glassware....Copper cuttings bottles....Lemon chess pie....Book letters....Hearts in Snow blanket....Ginger Pear Cheesecake....Camouflage pincushions....Faux chenille panel....prayer flags, bee boxes and Moroccan scarf.... blackberry cake




Also, I have plans to play with polymer clay, try viking knitting, lo-cal canning, recon clothing, refinishing furniture, make shrines for special people and.... whatever comes up!

Happy New year everyone Cheesy decided to join in for a 3rd year Smiley

Quote
When did you first get into crafting?  Do you have a fond memory of one of the first things you ever made?  How did you feel about making something? Do you have any pictures of your project or of you at that time?

The earliest crafting memory I have is my mother giving me a peice of fabric stretched in a hoop when I was about 7 yo. I drew a picture in pencil on it and then using the (then very basic) embroidery suppolies she had I embroidered it. I remember the satisfaction of making something myself (even if I did sew my self to the table cloth at one point!) and I still have the piece. My mum framed it all those years ago and kept it safe. It is hanging on my Hoopla wall in my craft space now:)



Ok. so I'm re-posting the remains of my list for 2014 which will no doubt grow over the year  Cheesy
