Default Post a pic of your latest craft :)

Hey everyone...trying to get more ideas on what I like and my brain can do. Let's post pics of our latest craft or many of whatever you do. Together maybe we can stave off boredom.

I do a variety of jewelry. I have learned to draw (as long as I can look at a photo), watercolor, carve rocks, crochet (but it drains my neuro energy quickly), and sew a bit.

These are very nice. I find doing my artwork to be very helpful in controlling mood and pain.

Any creative endeavor that uses the right brain can be a good therapeutic activity and also fun!

I crochet hats and sometimes scarfs and afghans in my spare time. Most of them go to a project that donates them to homeless people. Some of my hats:

So nice and a wonderful charity. My craft days are behind me and I never learned to crochet, I tried a little and my neck hurt right away. Thanks for the lovely share.
