What's your favourite craft

There has been some talk amongst my friends about arts & crafts and what's new in the craft world.
Do you have a favourite?
Do you only do one craft or several?
What are members of your family and friends doing?
Hm, I'd be really interested to receive every ones feedback.
Please drop me a line.

Hi there Anna!

Oh gosh - where do I start?!! My biggest love at the moment is definitely sewing.. I love the machine for piecing and the speed of making something... it is both therepeutic and achieves fast results. But, then I adore stitching... I find that incredibly relaxing and therepeutic, and it can be transported anywhere!

What next? Doll-making... I love creating little characters and there is so much to learn!

Painting - of course! This is the area where I am least confident, but I absolutely love it! So far I have painted on canvas, wood, MDF and fabric... and fabric is my favourite.

I also enjoy Punchneedle embroidery... very time-consuming but well worth it...

Ooh - you've got me all fired up now!!! I want to do all of the above RIGHT NOW!!!! he he he...

Hugs Anna!

Hey Anna! Hmmm ... don't think there's many crafts I haven't tried at one time or another. My favourite would probably be stitcheries - they're just so portable and can go wherever I'm going at the drop of a hat and they can either become big or small finished projects depending on my mood. I've also been blanketstitch appliqueing again and am enjoying it heaps. Of course, there's the bear making, cloth doll making, quilting ... so many crafts, so little time and play money!! :0) Bear Hugs! KRIS

Hi Anna,
Art & craft.... I love it all and I think I have tried just about everything. Only one I didn't really enjoy was leadlight but that had more to do with finger cuts then the creative process.

Hi Anna
I'm with Kerryanne, I love creating anything and everything -
I've just noticed your little voting section on your sidebar - how good is that!

I must say painting is my passion - good thing too as it's also my living - I'm lucky to be able to do something I enjoy for a living

Happy weekend to you Anna

Pre-1993, sewing was my first love. Ever since high school, I would sew my own clothes as well as clothes for family members. I have always enjoyed knitting and crochet too. I discovered art in 1993 and it became my new passion in life. I love painting! I sew, knit, crochet on occasion so I still enjoy those too.

You have a lovely blog, Anna! Thanks for stopping by mine. I love connecting with other artists online.

Happy Monday to you,

Hi Anna,
First of all, thanks for being my first follower!
I enjoyed having a look at your blog too. Your paintings are very pretty. All the little details are so perfect.
Well, my favourite at the moment is absolutely sewing. All those beautifull fabrics are just very inspiring.
Also love painting a lot (that's where it all started) and some papercrafts.
I don't have a lot of crafty persons in my family. A few friends of mine are also into sewing (mostly clothes) but not addicted like I am!
So it's nice to share the passion online with other artist!

Hi Anna,

Thanks for stopping by...nice to meet you.

To answer your polling question, I would have to say that painting is my passion. It is what I do full time and no matter what else I try...I always come back to that fact, it is my favorite thing.

Tuppence Crafts said...

Hi Anna, well... I love all the crafts. I like to try everything,but like all of us, I am limited with time. I would say patchwork is my most favourite craft. I find it so relaxing and I always feel happy and satisfied when I have completed a finished quilt.

Tracey said...

Hey Anna, I love all craft but one of the best would have to be patchwork followed by scrapbooking, not that I have had time to do the 'scrapping', I have also tried many other crafts including ceramics, knitting, crochet, photography, bear making, and even folk art. I just wish I had more time for craft and less time for work and kids, only joking.

Flor Larios Art said...

Tozz said...

HI Anna and I love all crafts but at the moment its mostly sewing. Patchwork,quilting, stitcheries and anything to do with needle and thread...not mending tho!! I also love Folk Art and Decorative painting but have not done any for a while but intend to get back into it as I have several UFO's waiting for me. Also knitting is something I enjoy and crocheting too. I once did pottery and that was fabulous fun. Made a lot of bowls and plates. Always wanted to make a complete dinner set. ahaha one day.

I Purr-Furr to Craft said...

When the weather is cold i love to knit with myself all rugged up. When i am not knitting i love to sew, I mostly like to make for charity, family and friends, that is what inspires my creativity. In the summer i like to make felt, crochet, and always alway sewing with machine. I would love to try things like polymer clay, painting and drawing, and probably so much more.. I'll get there...
