Crafting is one of the greatest ways of using up spasre time – as if there is such a commodity! I get to the end of a working day and wonder how on earth I managed to get what I did do done . . . . I’m just not organized enough to be able get the housework and domestic chores finished and get feet up before the late night news comes on. so I decided the best thing would be to take a course in basic crafts like knitting and crochet. I joined a local knit and knatter group down at the local wildlife nature reserve visitor centre. It has been so enlightening – not ony from the point of view of showing me that I do have talents, but also that I have a really good eye for colour and balance. This in itself came as a bit of a surprise but all credit accepted!
