A craft one: when I my kids were little I kept forgetting to trace their hands like my Mom did when I was little (then put on the tree). So I got green felt, traced all three hands on it and embroidered it. I am really glad. I had to do it then since the girls were heading into teens, and I didn't want all adult hands.

really like felted bags, sweaters and for my kids, and trying shawls. made one for myself I love out of cotton, and trying to finish another in lime and green, but no time right now.
