So I have spent a few days just reading other blogs. A fantastic exercise. There are so many talented people out there writing about their crafts and lives. It has been a most interesting experience. It is so difficult to choose just 12. However, heres my list I have included my reasons for each selection.
In alphabetical order :-
Basketmaster's Weavings - an interesting, down to earth lady whose blog is a mine of information about basketweaving. Tips, patterns plus many pictures, tutorials.
Bodrighy Wood - You can see the well turned woodworking skills of this craftsman. Just from pictures you can almost touch and feel the smooth lines of the finished articles.
Busy Bees Craft Place - I'm useless trying to make anything out of paper. Therefore to see what can be done with card paper and glue etc. is so inspiring. Her bookatrix holder is something I would happily put to good use.

Glitterbug Studios - Springtime comes to mind looking at Tracey's blog.
Needle Tatting and other Nonsense - I chose this blog because it is the one of the needlecrafts that I haven't been able to master yet so I will be returning to this site to inspire and egg me on to have another go. There are tutorials as well.
