So, in spring 2008 it started with knitting. A year later I bought a spinning wheel. The year after that was a small loom and a sewing machine. Along the way, I’ve learned that I love creating things. I love planning to create things. And I especially love the challenge of learning new crafts and complex techniques. I’m not the fastest at completing projects, but occasionally I get obsessed and then things move fast.
I have 2 kids in elementary school. My wonderful husband doesn’t totally understand my draw to the fiber arts, but he’s supportive (most of the time) anyway. I have a fairly demanding full-time job, but it’s a pretty cerebral. Crafting helps me focus my mind on a completely different, more concrete world.
This blog is named after my “studio” our basement – that I share with 1000s of legos, a dollhouse, and a bajillion other toys. I’ve claimed the corner that has a door to the unfinished basement (storage!) and a view of the TV.
I know I’m about a decade late to the blogging thing… but that’s no reason not to start one when I feel like sharing. I’m hoping to regularly post here about my various projects.
