Thanks, everyone!  Simply amazing feedback and suggestions.

Mom has breast cancer which has metastasized to the bones - she recently fractured her pelvis, which lead to the bedrest.  I didn't want to come across as milking the illness, but did sincerely want to find some things for her to do / learn / enjoy.  She does have a "tablet" computer, and I think I WILL introduce her to craftster... in addition to many of the other suggestions.

Y'all are awesome.  Thanks again!

Thank you, especially, for the book suggestions.  That'll really open up a world of creativity for her!

I'm trying to come up with some ideas for a birthday gift for my mom (end of January).  Mom's recently become a semi-invalid with the prospect of that progressing to full time invalid in the next few months, and she asked for some crafty things to keep her entertained while she's on "bed rest".  She already does scrapbooking and has lots of supplies for that.  She also sews and quilts, but with the bedrest she can't really spend much time at the machine.  She crochets, doesn't like to knit, very much enjoys being active and spending time with others...

I gave her a soap-making kit I picked up at JoAnn's, for Christmas, and she seemed to like that.  But goodness... what to give!  I'm kinda stumped.  It's kind of surprising how many crafts require sitting for long periods of time, or standing in the kitchen, or bending over frequently.  I think she'd love just about anything - although she's probably tried all the "classic" crafts (macrame, painting, knitting / crocheting, quilting, embroidery, scrapbooking, furniture refinishing, ceramics, etc), what's new and innovative that maybe we haven't considered?

My original idea was to fill a box with "sick day" stuff, and I think that might still work to an extent - small projects quickly finished, etc.  I did do a search on "handicapped" and "invalid" and "sick", but didn't come up with much.  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance!
