I have done all sorts of sewing and crafting, and have half a dozen people who I regularly give various things to. Most of it ends up in charity items, whether I make it,

    I'm new to this blogging thing, too, but this really sounds like fun. Not quite sure how it goes, but if you get real specific with the way it works, I'm up for the challenge. I might need some help in how to proceed with the online part. What is tagging?
