…but…I know many of you out there really enjoy making crafts, and rightly so. I don’t dislike the finished product, just making the darn stuff. ; ) My honorary cousin Jeff D. recently posted a picture of one of those potholder makers (pictured at left) that so many kids had in the 70s. I laughed when I saw it because I always started my potholders with good intentions but never finished them. Guess I didn’t like crafts from the start.
Sadly, I didn’t inherit my mother’s skill with crafts. She played the guitar, made homemade Chinese and Mexican food and crocheted. Here I am in the 70’s wearing one of the groovy bulls-eye vests she crocheted. We thought those vests were the best.
