I come from a family of artistic, crafty women and grew up with home made, handmade, home baked and hand sewn. My Mum has a humungous range of crafts under her belt from wood work to sugar icing art. Now in her 70s she attends painting classes.
My own crafty abilities go as far as jewellery making/wire art and a spot of embroidery but between my 3 talented sisters they could nest up a home full of handmade goodies and artwork and also design and make your entire wardrobe of clothes (bar the shoes.)
Two of my sisters were sharing their latest achievements on Facebook so I asked if I could show them off here. Neither of them sell their work (though they could!) and are too shy to let me post their names but this is what they have been up to this week:
|crochet fingerless gloves by sibling #3 of 4|
|re-upholstered chair cushion by sibling #1 of 4|
And here is some of what sibling #2 of 4 (that would be me) has been up to:
|sea glass fairy ornament|
|wire wrapped tree|
I'd love to hear if you come from a crafty family too? Please do tell by commenting below.
