A friend of mine has a daughter who is a florist by trade and into Quilting at the moment..Apart from working 2 days per week...looking after her 90 year old mother and looking after 3 grandchildren....all quite young....she finds time to work on quilting..One of her amibitions is to make a handmade quilt for each of them..her hand sewing is second to none...so I have given her a few bits and pieces too help her along......she told me she had her 3 grandchildren together, so was showing them how to do various things with crafting ideas....then suddenly realized the little girl (just school age) was busy showing the other two how to pleat and fold......so....................they had their own agenda....but lovely to hear of young people so interested in "making things". So crafting will not go away, it will live on in the hands of those who follow....lovely thought.

I think there will always be a place for the "handmade with love" crafts, mass produced and throwaway will never replace them. It's wonderful that the children are teaching each other too.

I would love to see them as an invisible watcher.....I remember the times in Wartime when my younger brother and I used to take my mothers hand wind sewing machine and make "stamps"....perforated squares and would use flour and water as glue.......................each era has its charm I suppose......now? I am slower at making cards and tend to delay things as body complains, so hand sewing is very rare....however am holding on to some crafts and am gradually working my way with my poncho...already completed 98 squares,but need a few more then stitch together and add fringe and neck piece......we shall see......very colourful as used all odd balls of yarn...

I have taught all my grandchildren crafts when they were young boys and girls alike however when they became teenagers then homemade became less favourable, I notice now though they like natural things and have started back making things in their 20's , Niamh age10 is still interested and I can't wait for Brianna to grow a bit .

I remember making those stamps mary and dolls furniture from cigarette boxes and match boxes . And I loved plasticine.
