I have been a crafter for over 50 years. My grandmother taught me to cross stitch and crochet. Those were my favorites for many years. As I got older I did craft shows and had items in consignment shops. Now I am retired and a widow with no children. I have plenty of time to try new crafts. My current favorites are dioramas. They are done in terrarium containers, shadow boxes, or ornaments. I also enjoy creating famous art work, miniatures, with very tiny tiles.
