I just decided to try my hands at making stitch markers for my pal instead of buying them. I really don't know why I did not try it before, it is not that complicated and I'm pleased with the results. From now on, I will definitely make a set for every swap package I have to plan.
Making beautiful things with my own hands is so rewarding, I just love to see how things grow into something unique. Even if others use the same supplies or patterns, the results will always be different, that's what fascinates me about crafts. It's almost like magic, just without spells and wands - if you don't count knitting needles as wands.
