Busy Bee Challenge

Hello everyone

I hope you's are all ok and doing well❤️

4 months ago I posted an unfinished Hooky Art image on the Busy Bee Challenge 2018 page

I'm chuffed to say I've finally finished

Thanks, I'm really pleased how it turned out. Wasn't happy with the look using bits of rags, so it's all done hooking through strips of felt. 😊

Looks lovely. I'm working on a Christmas cross stitch project, an advent calendar. What, another one? Rather slow going as I am now knitting items for premature babies as well as my usual card making for my local animal shelter. It's a wonder I have time to eat!

And the end result provides you with a sense of achievement, doesn't it? That alone is great, already. Then you get the praise and encouragement on this forum which is lovely.

I'll admit it's nice to be to show someone my Hooky Art, as I'm proud of myself for finishing. It's also nice to get the comments off the lovely people on here, but I do it to keep my mind active and my hands away from chocolate 😊

Praise is reassuring. I love when I get positive feedback on things I do or make. That is mainly cooking these days. Creative and practical. Hope you will upload some more nice work. 🎗️

Oh, thank you. I may post some. I have not posted anything, yet, but thinking of it. 🤷

Definitely do, posting brings us together no matter what it's about, your feelings up or down, exercise, crafts or what you've been cooking. Your meals may also broaden my menu, I love a new recipe ❤️

Reply

Oh, okay. That's encouraging. What ingredient is in your mind? Let me think of a nice recipe.

There is a challenge, Edible Alphabet... We are at letter O, I think. It is to encourage people to use rarely used ingredients. It's nice.
