Once you post, you may also post a thumbnail or link in your own list.

You can also post to the proper category for the whole forum to see…like knitting, quilting, etc.

Thanks…and keep on crafting.

I was wondering how to post clickable thumbnails, not certain how to do it here. Anybody figured it out?

Yes…post your pic…edit it by changing the dimensions by dividing by

Finished my first project of 2020: Kitty cat toy for a baby. A very simple and quick little sewing project just to jump start my year of crafting. :heart:

That does post a smaller image but it’s not a clickable thumbnail that leads to a bigger photo?

Ok, I tried gg’s seahorse and it does open up. Nice!

Cute teething ring, rlynn!

Those are great journal covers, Reinikka! I love the fabrics you used, especially the math one.

I made four hanging baskets to hold our Winter accessories that are currently in use ('cause you know I also have a big bin of handmade hats and scarves). These just hang on the same pegs as our coats, keeping hats/scarves/mittens organized and off the floor (and away from a dog that would happily eat them).

My boys are finally getting baptized, so the one who doesn’t have a jewelry phobia gets a handmade jade rosary. My other kiddo gets a wooden rosary - no metal, no problem.

The math and letter ones I’ve been oogling (like some others as well) as they were snatched up so quickly in the ebay sale. I never even saw them!

I’m in! Our room (slash craft room) isn’t ready to go yet so I will just stalk for ideas until I can. Also have to buy lots of more yarn. No real list yet :slightly_smiling_face:

  2. Yarn stuff.

Just finished my second LGT swap item, third is almost done too!

I did these for years at Craftsters and aced it 3 years running but about 6 yrs ago I got sick…then stayed sick, (yay fibro :neutral_face:) and slowly just couldn’t keep up.
I am working hard to reclaim my motivation and drive and to feel more like me.

So I am going to try again

List soon to come

This along with the other craft a longs arr going to be my jam this year! Right now I am eorking on my first project that I started this year. Its a shrug for myself. I love the colors, they feel vintagie to me. Now mind you, the key word here is “started” in 2020. I finished a sweater I started last year and have a ton more wips to go! Lol

This is a great one! I’ve been debating if I can justify keeping books I have ogled and drooled over but as yet not made anything from them. Real estate is at a premium right now, I better get crafting’ if I’m justifying keeping them.

I had that goal for several years…finally, when I moved last year, I took all the books that I never used and donated them to a recrafting store…it was freeing! Most of the books I have now are knitting or crocheting that you can use over and over…it is a good goal!
