In recent years, I have been enjoying the revival of craft in our country and all over the world. Sites like Etsy have come into being and I am so excited to see all of the wonderful, handmade goods for sale. I am deeply interested in the past, when people made lots of things themselves. Toys, clothing, soaps and delicious foods were commonly handmade goods. They grew delicious food in flourishing gardens. They sewed and knitted fabulous garments. They made homemade medicines and developed the fine art of baking. They painted dish designs and made Christmas ornaments by hand. They made beautiful quilts and needlepoint designs. I think people should make more things by hand. Where is the line between craft and art? I do not know. Becoming a master of a craft is a fine art in itself. I like to think of things that I could make.
Here is the fabulous letter P...I made for a gift for a friends birthday.
