But why

4/16/2008

One of the many blogs I read posted a great question today. Basically she wanted to know why people craft. My answer? Because I have to, it to me is like breathing. I have always been "crafty" though more hot glue gun crafty. Now a days it is obviously that I am drawn to sewing. Something I hope to do for the rest of my life. I think though the biggest reason I create things is that so one day some 20 something year old will find something I created years after I am long gone at an antique store and will be connected to me and pass my spirit on for another generation. So basically I create because I want to be that cool funky spirit that haunts for fun *smile*

Oh and the photos? The starting of my spring/summer doll quilt for this swap. I am really happy with the start of it. Granted it isnt at all looking at what I originally was going for but I am rolling along with it and I think it is going to be a great one of a kind original. And the color palette, lickable I would say!

I, too, like the idea of something that one makes outlasting the maker herself... a way for one to make a little personal mark on the world.
