There hasn't been any sewing done but I have been doing a lot of crochet and knitting. Above is the two star shaped baby blankets that I am working on for two set of friends that are expecting. Now that the shaping is finished these are quite mindless which is good for watching tv.
My knitting skills have come along way although it is anything but a mindless activity for me. I am really enjoying it and to be honest I like it better than crochet.
I am currently at the first lacy part of the scarf, so lots of referring to the pattern and watching my classes on Craftsy.
Could really not recommend Knit Lab enough for anyone looking to learn to knit!
