I am a jack of all crafts.....I dabble in weaving, beading, cross stitch,crochet, knitting, wood burning, but have mastered none. I love to quilt though. What do you do and which is your favorite?

I really Love to Draw out my imaginations as well as write detailed stories behind the art its self. Right now though I am working on Quilting. My Friend is Having a baby in November and I wanted to make her something spacial! So I've picked up the art form of Quilting. For those who think its for older ladies. When do you think they started Quilting to actually get good at it lol... :)

I started quilting at 22. It's been a few years now but still I am usually the youngest "kid" in the group when at a guild meeting or show...lol..

Cool. There is a quilting group on here. Are you doing a traditional pattern or artsying it up as my church "grandma" says? I like to take simple patterns and then vamp them with new fabrics and what not.

sounds like me, beading, weaving, needle point, cross stitch, crochet and poly clay, but I think cross stitch and beading are about my favorites, I want to learn to quilt Now, I tried knitting, twice I've tried it, and didn't like it either time.

I love to mix my beading in my cross stitch. I use the beads as berries and eyes or on one piece I used them to make the jewelry on the woman in my design.

I converted a cross stitch pattern to beads and stitched it on a shirt, came out wonderfully mind you, it was a black horse - now its a buckskin

I did construction as a carpenter for a long time, I went to the hardware store for something, and saw a set of plans for a 6 foot tall Santa Claus made from plywood that you put out in your yard for the holidays! I bought the plans and made the Santa, painting it took awhile but it turned out great. I put it up in my yard and 2 days latter an elderly couple stopped by and admired it, they knocked on my door and asked me how much I would charge to make them one? LO! caught off guard I said $100 bucks! Sold that started a new side business for me! since then I've done Snowmen, Santa in a sleigh with 4 reindeer. Many others! Found my niche, in Oregon! tdemex

Very cool. Cut outs are very popular around our area in PA. A lot of silhouette, bear, moose, cowboys leaning on something. My Dad does something similar on a smaller scale for mantles and shelves (to use up his plywood and end of boards), but he cannot paint so My mother does the "pretty" work.

I'm like you lady, I do a little of everything. Except for knitting and crocheting, I haven't been able to master those yet. When I sit down and find my 'creative energy' I just go with what it wants to do. the majority of the time, I do scrapbooking and altered art with paper. But I also have a storage drawer full of beads and a closet full of qulting fabric, so at least if I decide to change crafts I have everything available! happy crafting!!
