Etsy Feature -- Hands' Delight

Recently, I entered and won a group of prizes from some SHEteam Etsy shops. SHEteam stands for Schooling at Home Etsians, and is a group of etsy sellers who offer support, advice, and companionship to each other as they sell their handiwork on Etsy. All of the members of the SHEteam have homeschooling in common.

In an effort to help promote their shops, I will be featuring some SHEteamers on my blog over the next few weeks.

Next in line is Liz from Hands' Delight. Liz sent me two cozies--used for keeping your hands cool around a coffee cup or keeping the contents of your drinking glass cool. They are the most vibrant shade of cobalt blue--one of my most favorite colors.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Tell me about yourself, your family and what your craft is.

I'm a wife, mother to 6, and work part time as an activities assistant at a retirement home. My craft of choice is crocheting.


2) How long have you been crafting?

I've been crocheting for about 15 years.


3) How did you get started?

My dear aunt's mother in law first got me started and then my husband's grandmother helped me learn more about the stitches and reading patterns.


4) How does your crafting fit in with your homeschooling?

This is a balancing act for sure but one of the many reasons I like crocheting. I can work on it when and where ever I would like. Normally I work on it in the evening we are are relaxing as a family and in the early morning before they wake up. However, if it's a small project and will take it along to appointments so that I have something to work on while waiting.


5) If you could try any new craft (money and time being no object), what would it be?

Oh there are so many other crafts I would like to try. I would love to try weaving, pottery, soap making and tatting.
