I do cross stitch and tapestries although I must admit I haven't had much time for either lately.

I like beading and make necklaces. I made my mom one for her birthday.

I've done cross stitch before and oil painting and all sorts of things.

Just dabbling in different things - mostly beading right now.

What is beading?
I wish I had more time for all the crafts I like! I love counted cross stitch and know how to knit and crochet. I've also had some experience with felting, spinning, and locker hooking. One of my favorites is working with felt kits (Christmas stockings, tree ornaments) with tiny stitches, beads, sequins, and embroidery. I made this stocking for my granddaughter last year :)

What is locker hooking?

Locker hooking is a type of weaving, using wool rovings or strips of fabric.  You use a long crochet hook with an eye in the opposite end.  Here is a link to a YouTube video and one to a tutorial (with a video, as well).  Unfortunately, it's not a popular product and I'm not creative enough to make my own designs, but I've made a few projects with good results.  It is a lot of fun!

I mostly knit, and I'm learning to crochet.  I'm also Merelen on Ravelry.
