My secret back tack buddy has been leaving anonymous comments lately, and I've been a total slacker about responding (okay, maybe slacker isn't the best word...I've been, um, a bit busy lately!). So here's some hints that I hope are helpful to her (I'm assuming it's a "her"...hey, where are all the crafting men in this blogging community??!!). And feel free to ask me any more questions that might help you out!
My "passion" is equally divided by knitting and sewing, though I anticipate having more time to knit this winter than sew. As for "new" crafts that I really want to try, I'm apparently in good company in wanting to attempt Crewel since I saw these sweet kits from Wool and Hoop. I love them all, but am particularly drawn to the red ones!
And this book coming out this fall (by the same designer as the kits) looks fabulous:
And even though I've done quite a bit of embroidery from my kids' art, I don't actually *know* that much about embroidery, nor do I have that much embroidery "stuff"...so that would be cool too! I'm very excited about this new book, also coming out this fall, pointed out to me by Lyn of Molly Chicken:
But with all of that said, I'm up for trying ANY new craft! So have fun, my back tack partner--I'm sure I'll be thrilled with what arrives! Surprises are just so much fun. ;)
(Oh, and P.S. -- to answer your question, yes, I ADORE Catimini's whimsical designs...and Oilily too! If that helps you figure out my taste a bit!)
