A 42 x 42 functioning wall clock made entirely of handmade pressed paper. The only non paper parts were the frame, the hands and the mechanism.

@Lil_Princess Oh that sounds really nice.

Thank you. I hate to say it, but it was.
It was a final project in college. I did like the way it came out and thought twice about giving it away.

Other than baked goods, I've made everything from throw pillows to Christmas ornaments to jewelry. I'm very crafty. Still trying to finish the quilt I started making for my daughter.

Quilting is awesome! I love it! But I can't do it. sad smilie
Too much math and geometry. I'd screw it up royally. But I love the idea of it. Good luck getting that finished! And post a pic when you're done. I love to see it.

I suck at math myself, so it's just a very simple (and crooked) block pattern, but sure, I'll share when I finish it.

Excellent! I watch the quilting shows on PBS. The Fons and Porter show makes my head explode.

I use to help my grandma make quilts, they can be very time consuming. I do a lot bake goods for gifts myself.

They are. This is the first one I've attempted. I started it about five months before she was born. lol, she's just about five months old, and it's still not finished. Finding time to work on it has been the main issue. I was still working nearly every day until she was born (was actually scheduled to work on that day), and finding free time to concentrate on hand-stitching with a newborn is just impossible.

My mama use to make afghans for my siblings & I for for Christmas. Gifts made from the heart mean more to me than something that comes off the shelf.

No since I was 12.
