    Well done nimbo! Even if the dress isn't quite tailored to you yet, that's another load of skills to learn and a ready made project to try them out on.

    I have been doing some card making, and have finished another scrapbooking page. I've also got one planned, just need to cut out the title on my cricut and matt and layer the pieces. I still have a large number of pages to finish, but I'm getting there.

    I sold my little sewing machine, and I have a box of papercrafting stuff to list at some point. I keep adding to it. Helpfully, my mum noticed some glitter in there and took it to use, so I have got rid of a little bit ��

    If not, please sign me up. I've just realised that some of my yarn stash is old enough to go to high school!

    I have far too much yarn. Ravelry tells me that, excluding partially used skeins, I have 90 different yarns in my "collection".

    My Ravelry Challenge for 2019 was to complete 16 projects: 6 sweaters and 10 pairs of socks, IIRC. So far this year, I'm on my fourth pair of socks and my second full sweater. I've also finished up a couple of sweaters from 2018.

    I have used up one note book. Yay.

    Fixed one par of trousers for my housemate.

    Sewn one dress to avoid gaps over my bust - wore the dress to a job interview and jog the job.

    144 / 400.

    Realised I've not been on for ages.

    Finished the footrest, which is not quite perfect but has been much admired, and am trying to finish a wedding present - just some applique and sewing up, should be finished by Saturday (wedding's on Sunday).

    I've lost count, so it's 2 more than last time - will have to check if I can be bothered.

    I have seen a few of the blind things up. Yay. Planning to move in 2 weeks so it needed doing. It was surprisingly quick.

    I still have to pack the craft room up so that’ll be fun.

    I've not managed to finish anything, but I have been pottering. My progress has been put back by preparing for our first family holiday, being on holiday, and unpacking from holiday. It was quite seamless and mostly stress free, but that did mean it took time to think about what to take and what alternatives etc, time I used to spend crafting!

    I have managed to find a few minutes here and there to matt and layer some toppers, but they aren't on cards yet. I started a cushion, but haven't quite finished it. That's this week's job!

    I finally did a car boot, so all the boxes are out of the craft room! I didn't sell very much at all, only made a little bit after my pitch, but I donated the rest, so still out of the house and space to move now.

    Well done everyone on your crafts, I'd love to see some photos (but I don't know how people do that)
