I am having an enforced rest due to illness, so using the time to potter around and get some projects finished off. Very pleased with my sketchbook/journal that combines my handwoven fabric cover, Folded Secrets pockets for things we will gather on our travels, and the bookbinding skills that I have used before. Ready now for our forthcoming holidays.

Ooh that’s fab! I am so uncrafty. I have craft envy when I see things like this. :(

You really don’t want to see the tank top I knit in 1982! I stitched up the armholes! Or the Santa Claus I knitted for daughter number one’s first Christmas. He had anorexia! :D

You are very clever. I love hand crafted things. I am supposed to be crocheting my daughter a rainbow blanket for her baby that is due next week, but it has ground to a halt as for some reason I don't like knitting or crocheting when it is hot.

There was a time when I always had a bit of knitting or embroidery on the go, but I've got out of the habit. I made some curtains earlier in the year, and a winter skirt, which I finally finished just before the weather turned hot....
I'm currently waiting for a remnant I bought on line to arrive so I can make some cushion covers to brighten up the study, I just painted the walls light grey, which looks nice and calming, but it now needs something to cheer it up!
I hope you're feeling better, SB.

Same here, Robin. :) I always used to have some little “evening sofa project” (cos that’s when and where I’d do it) on the go. I find TV so boring these days, I need something creative to make me sit still and relax.:rolleyes:

Hope you’re on the mend SB.:)

I don't think I posted this on the original Procraftination thread before Photobucket started holding everyone's photos to ransom - this is the card I made for my Mum's 90th birthday this March. As well as being a proper card (in that the whole thing opens so I could write a greeting inside), the door of the shed on the front also opens and closes.

Thanks Bloden. Tests show liver is recovered and my basal rates are back to normal, which is a good indicator for me.

How about starting a new sofa project. I have a pair of fingerless gloves which I started over a year ago. I plan to take it away with me on holiday in the hopes that they will be ready for next winter.

Thanks Robin. I had missed all the posts in this thread.
Definitely feeling better. Did Pilates for the first time in ages today.
Managed one hour and then gave in.

I look forward to seeing your photos of the cushion.

Still not finished the crochet poncho (remember ponchos?) I started for my small daughter in the early seventies! Not much point now she is 47 ........
What else could it become now?
