That sounds interesting! "Knitting" and "Star Wars blanket" just don't seem to go together.

It didn't turn out quite as hoped, but being the first one in a while, I was pretty content with it and am excited to continue to make improvements with future projects. I am also working on a string art of a giraffe that will take a little more time and finesse. Fingers crossed it turns out as well as a string art elephant I did a few years back (and regrettably sold...)!
Button art and string art? Can we see a picture? :)

I'm in the process of knitting a bookmark with hopes of knitting others. I couldn't think of anything else as the yardage of the yarn I have is quite low. I'm also crocheting a lap blanket but will have to purchase more matching yarn soon. There's a mini sew project being planned where I hope to sew a portable yarn bag.

There are several projects I would like to dive in on but have to pace myself and plan accordingly.

I taught myself how to crochet on YouTube. So, I spent most of my free time crocheting. Currently, I'm working on a Simple pullover sweater for the first time.

I think I do, actually! I'm not sure how to include photos in this, so let me try and figure that out and I can post them here!

I don't usually work on crafty things nowadays, but back in school, I used to make so many things. Recently I made flowers from tissue paper.

A knitted thing! It's probably going to end up a scarf, since I only learned to knit a few weeks ago and don't have the skills for anything complicated. My friends/family are likely to be getting a lot of scarves this year :P

I just built a small bookshelf for my best friend's birthday present. Never did that before. It's not perfect but the shelves are level and that's what matters!

I can see a way to add photos in a reply but I don't know how you'd be able to resize them so they wouldn't take up the whole thread. *shrugs*

I am working on a web tale. I am writing a story that is kind of serious but I want to express it through cartooning. It will be a short book and will be published on my blog.

Recently, I have been working on this dream catcher which is quite easy to make as it just requires some wool, a large wooden or metallic ring and beads for detailing. You can also use artificial feathers for decorating it. It looks so beautiful and eye-catchy. :tiphat:
