I have a feeling I'm going to be posting a lot in the upcoming months so I thought I'd say hi!  The new year has hit me with an itch to crochet, which sent me surfing the web for inspiration and I stumbled across Craftster.org.  I am an avid bookworm and crafter, always have a book and craft on the go and can't sit watching TV without a needle of some kind in my hand. My main passions are crochet, X stitch and quilting, but in the past I've done some candle making, paper crafts/rubber stamping etc.  But I find I enjoy fabric and thread the best.  I'm about to sew some "snuglet" fleece blankets (figured I could make them cheaper than buying them), and am planning a crocheted butterfly wing shawl.  I am also thinking of crocheting a baby afghan for my boss who is due in a couple months.  I have spent the last couple months X stitching Christmas stockings for my dh and dd, so I'm ready for something different.

My name is Michele, I'm a p/t working mom (bank teller) of 3 in Edmonton, although originally from the Toronto area.  Married to dh for almost 18 years.  The kids are 15, 11 and 8 now, so I am free to craft as they go about their busy lives Smiley    I'm looking forward to some CAL's and maybe some swaps.... I have been burned in the past on other sites, but this one seems like it has strict rules about swapping which I appreciate.  There are some really beautiful projects posted here and obviously some extremely talented crafters to get to know!
