    Does everybody on here do quilting only or do you do other crafts also? I get in moods where all I want to do is crochet, or cross stitch and won't even think of quilting for months. Then, I will suddenly want to only sit at my sewing machine and forget housework, cooking and everything else in the world. :shock:

    I am sure, given all the creativity one sees here, that many of us do many different crafts (smile).

    I knit and crochet as well as sew. I will knit and crochet while I watch t.v. The t.v. is usually not on while I sew.

    I do that all the time. It's a wonder anything ever gets done around here :) I read for days, cross stitch, paint, sew, knit, crochet, bead, quilt, garden, shop and decorate. It just comes and goes and there's no rhyme or reason for it :) Thank goodness my husband thinks it is great. He's happy as long as we get to travel, golf and watch football which I always stop and do :) Luckily we have a wonderful pet sitter that comes anytime to watch our 7 fur babies!

    I love to crochet and knit as well.... I generally have one project each of quilting, knitting, and crocheting sitting right next to my couch so I can just grab whatever I'm in the mood for on any given day. :)

    I used to cross stitch, but haven't done so in many years. I am slowly learning to crochet. My youngest DD taught her self to knit and crochet. I love all the soft, colorful and fuzzy yarns.

    I also love to mess around with craft paints and decopage. Mostly on recycled items from thrift stores or garage sales.

    I don't know if it is considered a craft, but I do scrapbooking.

    I, too, have done a lot of different crafts, but crocheting and quilting are the 2 most enjoyed. With yarns being so high it is harder to make afghans for charity.

    I also embroider, crochet and knit, although my knitting skill isn't that great.

    I like to knit and do assorted other crafts as well, jewelry making, scrapbooking, and really whatever I can think up and execute! But sewing has def come to the forefront of my crafting lately!

    I learned to crochet when I was in my teens. I could just look at something and create a pattern for it. When I was in college, I busted up my wrist really badly and couldn't crochet without pain.

    So I learned how to quilt.
