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. 😊

Yes, I can see how felt has worked well. Given it a crisp finish 😊

You can definitely finish yours and I hope you do so I can have a look, love seeing people's crafts... I'm looking for a frame now haha😊

I love this idea of sharing people's ideas as it really encourages us. :)

Enjoy hunting for a frame. The same time you will be earning more points and loosing weight. Go for it! :)

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!

Thanks, Once I was in the rhythm I enjoyed it 😊

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. 🎗️

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 ❤️

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.
