    I used to do a lot of cross stitch as well. Then I went to work and have had some bad shoulder problems. I hope to be able to cross stitch again someday.
    I really liked working on the Lavender and Lace Victorian Angels and ladies. I have about 15 of them done on 32 ct linen and have a bunch more of her patterns I want to do.

    I cross stitch, knit, and sometimes make cards and crochet.

    I've done quite a few L&L designs too - I used to sell the patterns in my shop, so stitched out the designs to show potential customers. I have also knitted, spun, crocheted, painted, you name it. I have done canvas work embroidery, minature carpet making for my dolls house, plus making furniture for it. I used to teach bobbin and needle lace too, but most of those I put to one side 10 years ago when I arrived here in favour of quilting. I began quilting in the 60's but the UK had very little available at the time, so it got put to one side.

    I do all sorts of crafts from crocheting, knitting, cross stitch, needlepoint, and candle carving. Here are just a few pictures of my candles.

    I love to cross stitch and crochet. I learned to knit about a year ago and made my first pair of baby booties, and sweater for my grandson. It took me so long to finish them, now I knit sweaters for a charity that sends them around the world to any children who needs them.

    I used to do all kinds of crafts and sold my stuff in Craft Fairs. I quit all that when I had to go back to work about 9 years ago.

    I mess and gaum with other stuff besides quilting, but only get serious about the kiddy outfits and tote bags.
    Quilting is my first love, now. I do have lots of plans for hand embroidering and cross stitch...if i ever stop with the fabrics.
    Want to embroider on some blocks.
    I will...eventually :XD:
    Loved the samplers and
    candlequilter...see why you picked your nickname! woo hoo! :thumbup:

    I paint ceramics - mostly just round trivets & cups. (Not so good on the 3D stuff, so stick to the "flat" things! LOL) I have done lots of plastic canvas needlework coasters & can crochet some. My friend that owns the ceramics shop where I paint is going to teach me how to follow a crochet pattern & I want to make some "string bags". We'll see.... :wink:

    I love to embroidery - especially baby quilts. I also make items for a craft show i.e. potato sacks, curling iron caddy, pot holders, aprons, oven mitts, etc.

    I especially love to work with fabric!

    I dabble in crocheting (made the shrug in my Avatar). Am also in the process of making thread crocheted barefoot sandals. I love those things. Used to do counted cross stitch - a lot of sweatshirts for friends and family. My grandmother taught me to tat, but I have totally lost that ability that I never really had. All thumbs with it. Want to learn to paint, but haven't done anything with that desire yet. Other hobbies are vegetable and flower gardening, although that's not really a craft. **I love the candles and am very impressed with the samplers***. Does anyone on this board tat? I think it is coming back into vogue.

    Love to sew most anything. I have made doll clothes, Dog beds, totes.

    One of my most favorite hobbies was creating Stain Glass hangings. I have done several. I still have all of the equipment, just haven't been into for the last couple of years Lots of fun, but it really tears up your fingers :-o

    I paint, scrapbook, sew clothing, dabble in genealogy, watercolor, embroidery, make cards, bake, make small crafts(potholders, pincushions, etc), and Prismacolor pencils. I have done candlewicking, candle making, soap making, jewelry, rock polishing, wood burning, wood carving, doll making, gardening, rug making, knitting, crocheting, macrame, etc. If it's caught my eye I've tried it.

    I do scrapbooking, cardmaking and jewelry. I can knit but get bored with it quickly. I have done counted cross stitch (too hard on my eyes now), macrame, sewing clothing & doll clothes. I'm sure over the years there have been more. I really am enjoying the quilting. I just started quilting last year when I retired.

    I have tried many arts and crafts through the years, but narrowed it down to the following.

    I paint, knit, crochet, make rugs, landscaping and gardening I sew for my self and house. I have projects going with all those listed above. But I always have severl qilts going, I Love quilting, and all the friends I have made in quilting.

    I used to do needlepoint many years ago; don't do that any more. I have knitted since I was a teen. Have sewed since I was 5. Have made wedding gowns, prom dresses, etc. I do a lot of home dec sewing for people. I do cross stitch on the embroidery machine and every Christmas I make my daughter an embroidered Santa picture. Unfortunately I never thought to take pictures of them.
