HI, NOT REALLY GREAT AT KNITTING, TRIED IT WHEN MY MOTHER TRIED TO TEACH ME 40 YEARS AGO AND FOUND NO PATIENCE FOR IT. HOWEVER I DID FIND THAT WITH MY CROCHETING, SEEMS MORE SATISFYING QUICKLY BECAUSE YOU CAN SEE THE RESULTS NOW. HOWEVER, MY MOM IS 82 AND IS TEACHING ME KNITTING AGAIN, THOUGH SHE CAN'T DO IT ANY LONGER TO HER SITE AND BODY, I FEEL IT IS MY TRIBUTE TO HER TO LEARN SO I CAN PASS IT ON TO MY NEICES AND GREAT NEICES. SO AT 54 SHE STILL TREATS ME AS IF I'M 10 BUT I'M SURE WE'LL GET THROUGH IT WITHOUT HURTING EACH OTHER. THE OTHER PROJECTS I LISTED IS TRUE I ATTEMPT TO TRY A LITTLE OF SOMETHING TO SEE WHAT I LIKE. SO I TRY A BIT OF THIS AND THAT BUT THESE ARE STEADFAST GREATS.

I LIVE WITH CHRONIC PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS, SO THE VARIETY OF CRAFTS HELPS ME ON DAYS I MAY NOT BE ABLE TO DO ONE CRAFT, I CAN STILL PICK UP ON ANOTHER THAT GIVES ME MORE FLEXIBLITY IN MY HANDS, ETC. IT'S LIVING WITH THE PAIN THAT IS SO HARD, I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM OTHERS IN MY CONDITION OR LIKE CONDITION...WE NEED TO SUPPORT EACH OTHER.

Re: How to Make an Impression: Extraordinary Thank-You Notes

You do make this look so easy, as I have over the years purchased books on this craft and tools such as sissors so fine pointed that I paid much money for it, and yes the craft knife you so readily speak of.

It takes a special person with this special talent and patience to create what you did. I would envy your family and friends at any Christmas gift you have created. You are so wonderful to share this craft with us and you're beautiful design. I wish there was a class on this, but I also have at times limited use of my fingers with Chronic Arthritis...which I'm sure many readers can agree with. You're only as good as your hands allow you to be.

Awesome job would love to see more of your work!!!

Re: How to Stitch Up a Felt Needle Book

This is a wonderful idea, that can be translated in to so many different projects. It's beautiful, easy, and makes wonderful gifts. Yes I made a sewing pin booklet but I included space for my sewing machine needles, that i mis-place more than anything.

With a bit of adapting my best friends daughter asked that I make her hardbound paper journal in to a nice wool felt covelet like shown above with the exception of brighter colors for a teenager. She loved it.

You can make it be whatever you want, it was nice for someone to record this wonderful idea but don't let it stop you from adding that creative flare. No person who shows their creation can not be more pleased to see how you all adapt or overcome and idea when one is found. Thank you.
