TTMT 46 - HAPPY BIRTHDAY TERRY!



What I didn't mention in the video is that I have been doing a lot of shopping - mostly for batting, stabilizer, thread and other necessities, but a few fun things too,

I can see your quilting and it's looking nice, I like how it makes it look like the grain of wood.

My first handcraft was using the knifty knitter looms, then I taught myself to knit, THEN crochet. With my horrible arthritis in my fingers, plus carpel tunnel, I find crochet easier on my hands, but knitting is still fun and I still love how it looks, so I do do it occasionally for something specific like a gift. I love making socks but the tiny needles have gotten really hard for me to use for more than a little bit per week so they take me MONTHS. That's one of the reasons I wanted to learn to quilt, because it doesn't take the fine dexterity in the fingers that knitting and crochet take. But knit and crochet are my "takealong" crafts, because who wants to drag a sewing machine around, lol.

Your scarf is great! I can't wear stuff around my neck, it drives me batty, but I love to knit hats. Every year I have to knit a hat or earwarmers for myself.

I like making hats too. Quick and easy - that's my motto!

Love that Harry Potter scarf! I made a couple of very similar ones for my kiddos back in the heyday.

Good for you getting a little quilting done! I bet that feels really good! I've done outline stitching on the books only for several of the smaller PoDs that I've worked on. It still looks very cute.

I'm so touched that you tried knitting again inspired by my shenanigans. ♥
