In 2012 I joined a craft group. I started off doing the little cross stitch patterns you get from Hobbycraft. Then I downloaded some cross stitch magazines (a tip – you can download them free from your local library service). I then tried bigger cross stitch patterns. I liked that I could work on the cross stitch but still natter at the craft group!
A lovely lady, who is really skilled in card making, came along to the craft group to do a workshop. She gave me a lot of helpful advice on card making so I began making cards for friends and family.
Last year I started selling my cards and cross stitch designs so I spend my free time card making or doing cross stitch!
