A few weeks ago, bloggers Sarah and Jane discussed arts and crafts with readers at True Romance. I loved reading the discussion because I’m a crafty person myself and have recently been thinking that the only downside to writing is that it consumes all my quilting time.
I’m glad to know I’m not the only one, and love to see how other crafty writers have integrated their two methods of creation.
I think that’s why writing and crafting often appeal to the same people: they’re both about starting with scraps (perhaps some fabric, or a vague idea, or bits of dialogue running through your head) and building them into something entirely new and entirely yours.
What are the best books that feature crafty characters?
