finished my Gratitude Rosary. Just plain wooden beads on a black ribbon. Markered with flowers. I ‘travel’ from one bead to next, thinking of the next thing I am grateful for. Very powerful.


I love this idea! And your drawings are very good.

lol I guessed you were marsupial…ha ha ha that is a lovely way to showcase old needlework and still make it functional for today!


haha you know me too well!

Thanks guys for the kind comments - I am keen to make some more pieces like this. I can’t bring myself to throw away old embroidery that I know someone spent hours on.


I decided for some reason that I wanted to make myself some new curtains for my room. I have plenty of other projects to get working on.


Yay, curtains! I bet it felt good to make something so functional and visible every day. I like the color contrast at the top.

I somehow missed seeing your little zipper pouch, @jemimah. It is so, so sweet! I have the same feelings about honoring someone’s work. In the pre-COVID days when I used to go garage-saling, I would often see gorgeous embroidery or crochet pieces that were being sold for pennies due to staining or damage. I rescued a few, but have trouble figuring out what to do with them. Your little bag is very inspiring!


That pouch is simply darling! It seems quite firm in structure too, what did you use to line it?

Thank you! It is nice to see them. The contrast at the top is because I didn’t have quite enough of the main piece. :laughing: but it worked quite well.


Finally finished finished this quilt! I think I had posted the completed top in last years craft along. But now I finally got the binding on!


Thank you! I can’t remember, I think it might have just had an extra layer of cotton fabric?

That is a super stylish quilt @poetrylover828! Beautiful!

Thank you! I enjoyed making it and am happy it’s finished!

finished my heating pad cover. Last thing was to add the velcro.
My new version is a lot easier for my arthritic hands to put on since it is made out of stretchy material.
