I'm so sorry to hear about your knee! I have athritis in mine and they can be so painful, breaking one must be wwaaaaayyy worse.
I decorated my crutches when I last had to use them. I bought a cheap plaid scarf from the dollar store and folded it up to pad the underarm part. Then I took some black tulle, tied it to both ends to hold the scarf in place, then criss-crossed them around the top bars. I tacked them with glue on the bars so they wouldn't slide, then tied them in a bow at the end, where the handles are. I got alot of compliments on them.
WIPs great idea! I have a whole box full of magazines I was trying to figure out what to do with them. Now I know what to do first.
Lolaness, your cards are great! The one with the girl struck a cord with me, I could hear my mother saying those words. LOL if she had been a crafster she just might have taken a needle and thread to me I love the flip up design of the second one, its just lovely.
Some ideas for stuff other than scarves and hats that I've come up with are: A collage that might hang in the common room A banner you might wave at a Quiditch (spell?) game A center piece that might go on the house table in the dining hall A journal or stationary with the crest on each page or quotes from a student from that house. Soap with that houses "scent" A stuffed animal of the house mascot An Embroidered wall hanging of the house crest
Just to name a few
I'm trying to learn how to knit, so I will probably attempt a scarve myself.
