crafts are hot

I sat outside in the garden to read the other day. It was LOVELY.

I'm reading The Thrift Book at the moment. It's brilliant. I fahebnt   <-- what was THAT?! I mean to say 'haven't'. I'll try again.
I haven't (that's better) been able to put it down. The opening paragraph of the Crafts section amused me.

If you're under thirty and fairly with it, you'll probably understand what I'm talking about when I say the craft movement is HUGE and super-cool. 

Oh yes.

Also thought you might appreciate this bit.

  • crafts are hot
  • crafts are cheap
  • crafts are the best fun and intensely satisfying
  • crafts can dress you
  • crafts make brilliant presents
  • crafts can be sold and make you money
That's right, folks: crafts are HOT!
