Introduction Anything I encounter in my day will likely end up as words...either on here or in letters to my sister. I do crafts of all kinds, but lately it is mostly collector bears from mohair, cashmere, upholstery velvets.. well, any fabrics really .. and I love needle felting tiny bears too. I have taken cloth doll making classes online and am attempting some sculpting with polymer clay and also trying some paper clay, but don't make many dolls .. one or two a year maximum it seems. Some of them take forever... I'm slow. Perhaps I'm a bit old fashioned in that I like to cook and bake. I have huge stashes of recipes... you know..the ones we are going to try some day? I have begun to bake my own breads and am learning a lot more than I thought it entailed. The Great British Bake Off is a favourite show... I need British tv..!! I always wanted to be able to say "I can bake a cherry pie, ride a motorcycle (my bike is a Vulcan 500) darn a sock or sew a straight line"... and now I can. I love trying new things and have taken stitching and embroidery classes and now.. water colour classes online.. what fun !!
