Welcome to my blog and to answer the question in the title, I consider anything that is made or modified by man to create a new or altered item to be “crafted by hand”. This includes creating an article from raw materials, like sewing, knitting, crochet, woodworking or just giving an item a new life, such as reupholstering, restoration and refinishing. Adding embellishments to an item to give it that personal touch and make it unique is also included. I also consider interior decorating to be crafting, different painting techniques and fabric and colour choices that give your home personality.
I will be blogging about a lot of different topics such as articles of clothing I have created and will create in the future, my craft and woodworking projects, refinishing, antiquing, repurposing flea market finds and anything that I deem appropriate. I hope you will find something of interest to you while reading my posts.
