  6. Hi Teresa, I really loved the way of your representation in videos which helps a lot for beginners like me. Since last year am following your blog and videos in youtube. And guess I could directly start with the project of making caps, booties and headband which I gifted to my friends. And everyone loved it. So I take this privilege to thank you from bottom of my heart with such a wonderful work you are doing. I already had a cooking blog of Indian cuisine and recently started my craft section too. Please do have a look of it. Definitely I'll add your blog list to mine. I hope you don't mind :)Once again thanks a lot.
