I was cutting out a quilt last night...then I saw the tiny scraps piling up next to my pile of cuts...I thought: I can make notecards from those...went to another room to get notecards...while I was there, I saw that my old chair cushion looked worn, so then I went to find my stash of upholstery fabric in the garage...along with some little baskets that I had put out for Goodwill...grabbed the baskets and decided I could make cute Easter decorations...went to look for green yarn...hubby came home at 8 pm and asked me if I finished my quilt...uh, what quilt? Cheesy

Ha ha! I love it. At least it's better than me. I have projects I could be doing, but I'm to lazy to get up and do them.

You Have To Have pockets in a hoody. Especially if it has a zipper. If not, what about one pocket that both hands fit in from the sides? Like the kind we had 40 years ago?

It is going to be a pull-over, and I'm debating on really the outer pocket - like the old school hoodies which are still popular here, or welt pockets, mainly I don't want to draw attention to my middle

SheepBlue - that bag is great!  I love the mockingjay pin patch! 

So - I've been lamenting the pain in my hand these last few weeks.  I finally managed to get a Dr's appointment.  The Dr said "I think you might have a slight case of gout" so she drew blood, gave me meds and sent me on my way.  I went home like any good intelligent person and googled this!  If I had gout it would be a one in a million case.  99% of all first occurences are in men over 50 and in the big toe.  And the list of foods you have to avoid would practially turn me into a vegan!  No offense to anyone....  but personally, I like eating animals.  So my tests came back and all my levels are normal.  Its not gout which is a good thing.  But they didn't offer anymore helpful suggestions as to what it may be!  Me thinks (after a few other incidents) its time to find a new Doctor.  Sad  So I'm still in my crafting slump.

Great bag as always SheepBlue!  Ffrogg, I think I'd try a new doctor for sure.  Since my partner in the Hippy Swap has received, I posted the tassel belt I made for her.

I love the tribal belt MissingWillow <3

SheepBlue  another awesome TM bag!

I don't recall who was making a hoodie but I agree you have to have pockets  Cheesy

I started another pair of socks  Roll Eyes I need to perfect the technique don't I? These are chunky wool mock cabled ones in black/green/purple. The yarn will probably obscure the cable effect but I have to use what I have on hand and this has been on hand for about 4 years!

sheepblue - I LOVE the hunger games bag!  You are so creative.  I started a hunger games scarf - dunno if i'll finish it before the movie though.

AIMR - I get destracted like that too.  I don't want to think about in reality how many half started project I have going on.  I'm trying to make that a goal.  For every 1 (or 2) new projects, I have to go finish something that's a WIP (I have quite a few that are close to being finished - just got set to the side in favor of wanting to start something new)
