Gosh LB, if you hadn't told us we probably wouldn't have guessed. Nice that you dropped in, anyway.

My hobby used to be gardening, and I'm trying to get back into it. But man, it's hard work if you aren't used to it!

I also used to keep a journal. I'm starting to get back into that, too, because these are such interesting times that I want to keep a record of them.

Not really a craft, but it will help keep me moving towards my Long term goal.

I'm going to hatch some chicken eggs and maybe some peafowl too! The chickens will be for meat and eggs. The peafowl will be for fun and to annoy the neighbors... ;-D

I'm pretty sure I'll have to do the get rid of the peacocks or figure out how to keep them from screaming, but maybe we'll just sell our city place and move to the country. Seems like an optimum time to do that anyway, yeah?

I'm making my own incubator because I wasn't happy with the designs I saw for sale, and I can get faster delivery of the components than a whole setup.

I'll report back on the pros and cons as my experiment progresses.

I've been turning partial skeins of yarn into squares of various sorts. It's time to get out a folding table, see how many I have of each color, and start crocheting them together. That alone will clear a decent amount of space in a spare bedroom. Next time my sister is here, I'm going to give her a bunch of craft magazines I inherited from my grandmother. It's been almost eighteen years since she died, and I figure that I've I've not used them by now, I'm not going to use them. My sister is a pack rat, and has more than enough room for them, so she can have them.

Still working on my afghan when I have time. Definitely over halfway done now.

Today I am making some more cloth pads to add to my stash. This one is the last one I made. The ones I am making today will be exactly the same, except they will have buttons instead of snaps. I've discovered I hate the snaps. So I'll go the button route.

Right now I am trying to tease apart an extremely tangled set of chains on a five strand antique coral and pearl necklace!

Each strand has about 5" of chain on each end, it's a drape style necklace. I've been trying to untangle it for about an hour and I think I'm just going to have to take the chains off the clasp and do it that way.

Each draped layer has been crossed over and under and around...it's a mess.
