Hello. Aren't fellow crafters and bloggers the kindest most generous people? Look what arrived in the post for Boyd. An exceptionally smart and cosy crocheted blanket from my blogging buddy Lee. Read all about Lee's crafty adventures in Cornwall here.
For me, I suppose like most of us, this little hobby started off with a shoe box of bits and bobs at the dining room table. I made a few cards, bought a Crafts Beautiful magazine and discovered they ran an online forum. Well, I plucked up courage and started sharing pictures of my cards. Then I noticed that some of the ladies had 'blogs'. Hadn't a clue, but after a few happy hours browsing these wonderful blogs I knew I needed one of my own and buttons for brains was born (the name is my hubby's fault).
Now here I am many years later with a huge circle of online friends who encourage and support me and each other. It really lifts this cardmaking hobby to a whole other level.
And receiving gifts like this from someone you have never met but someone you call a dear online friend - amazing!
