Answer: Torch Time!!
Ever since I was littte I have enjoyed making things with my hands. I would sit next to my mother while she sewed, and handsew doll's clothing with her leftover scraps. Through the years, I have dabbled in crocheting, macrame, knitting, weaving, batiking, tie-dyeing, silk screening, and cross-stitching. I am currently into beading, needle weaving, making jewelry and lampworking.
