    Wow! lovely, Brilliant! AND please do NOT MOVE THIS THREAD!

    I love home made items. MY crafting shows all around my home.
    I am knitting baby cardigans at the moment. On my third. knitted a white, a yellow and now knitting a blue with white trim.
    The secret to success is making very small, yet constant changes.:)

    There's a whole craft-related board already on MSE as a part of the Special occasions & other Celebrations forum. It even has an indexed list of links to all sorts of projects and ideas.

    Thanks for the link. I think crafting should come under OS moneysaving as it's not just for special occasions. Things like making your own cushions is money saving!
