I used to sew a lot. Then, I sold my first book and suddenly sewing time took a backseat. It was that or give up reading time - not going to happen.
My favorite craft is crochet. I learned when I was about twelve. I babysat for the woman next door and she taught me. Pretty soon every female in my family owned a shawl in some outragous color (usually orange).
Now I pretty much stick to baby sweaters and dolls.
This is one of my dolls. She's in the Brenda Novak auction right now. People can bid on her and the money goes to diabetes. My father-in-law has diabetes and so did my grandmother. If you'd like to see what a bunch of romance authors do, not for fun but for serious, head on over to the auction. Brenda's focus in on childhood diabetes. She's making a difference.
I've included the link after the photo.
