I'm new here and hope I'm posting in the right place.( This time)
Wanted to enter the contest on a favorite craft.
I love Quilting, it seems every part of it fits my mood or the weather.
I can hand quilt and be covered up at the same time on a chilly day or applique on a hot day. I have a design wall where I pin up what I'm working on and if I get bored I can flip it around and start a new project. I have even gone as far as quilting pockets on nursing Scrub tops I've made for my daughter. I think my favorite was I spy quilts made from all the fabrics from previous clothing items for the grankids and their favorite things.

Oh, quilting has to be my very favorite too. Whether hand or machine piecing and quilting, machine embroidery or hand embroidery, I just love every part of it.

And to think my first quilt [all done by hand] took me 20 years, lol! I made every mistake in the book on that one....didn't know a thing about sewing. I drew my stitching lines on the fabric, so that I could get nice straight lines, and did them in INK. I had to get a pretty ribbon and stitch it down over the seams when I got the top pieced, as the ink showed through. :bluesad:

My favorite craft has been quilting for a few years but now that I have this embroidery machine, I have to say that now my favorite has changed to the machine embroidery. I just love doing ornaments, bowls and wall hangings and all sorts of things. It has been so much fun. I still, of course incorporate the two together to make it double the fun.
Have A Wonderful Day!! Sherry

That is tough. I have always loved sewing, I am just discovering quilting. Ihave always done a little bit of everything, scrapbooking, paper & digital, misc crafts (the glue gun is my friend!)
