Why do you craft ?


I've been tagged by Anne Heidi to answer a few crafty questions.

The rules are:
Answer the following on your blog and then let five other bloggers know that you have tagged them to complete the meme.

1. When did you start to create and make craft?
I loved to play with my father's felt pens when he worked, just trying the colours, for hours.
He worked in advertising and marketing when I was small. I have loved colours and texture as long as I can remember.
I started doing knitting around age 6 and the same with half cross stitches with wool thread.

2. Why did you start creating?
I guess it is in my genes.

3. Why do you create?
I create, therefore I am !
It is an urge, a need, a part of my breathing :-)

4. What do you create?
Quilts, quilts, quilts - small quilts, bigger quilts, quilt blocks, quilts with stitchery, quilts without stitchery - anything with quilts in the touch and feeling.

5. Has this changed since you began crafting?
I have gone the grades through all kinds of thread and fiber, so in the big view, no - it is still thread and fiber even if the materials, goals and results has changed through the years.
I do not knit anymore thought and cross stitches are not high on my list anymore.

As these tags are going around and around, I will not tag anyone in particular.
If you feel like sharing and answer the 5 questions, please do, and please tell me about it, so I can visit and enjoy.

I can understand your comment "It is an urge, a need, a part of my breathing." That is exactly how I feel. I don't understand how some people say they are bored and have nothing to do. I have so many things I want to do each day that I'll never get to them all. :-)
