A New Beginning

This blog is a showcase of stuffs that I do when my fingers get bored, mostly craftworks. My first cross-stitched pencil case was done when I was 7. It was a project for art lessons. I first discovered crochet when I was about 9. My aunt used to crochet me those water tumbler holders and dresses for dolls. She taught me the basics. I started bead weaving when I was 11. It was a Mother's Day project (a necklace) during art lessons. Made loads of braided bands when the craze kicked in during my teens. I knitted my first muffler for a friend going for studies in United Kingdom.

Over the years, besides finding the joy of baking and cooking, I found peace in craftworks. You sort of enter a 'zone' whereby time stood still and nothing mattered except that piece of work you are concentrating on. I stopped making craftworks for some time when I had my kids but I think I am ready to embark on this journey again. There are so many things I would love to do but the priority would be my children. I am stealing an hour or two before bedtime for these projects. My current project is a cardigan for Ah Girl. When that finish (heaven knows when!), I will start one for Ah Boy. I am not a very disciplined crafter so intermittenly, I will do something else which catches my attention. I hope it won't take me donkey years to update this blog here.

And thus, the journey begins.

Been looking everywhere for instructions for how to make crocheted glass holders. Can you remember how, and post the details? I`d be so grateful.
