I think I need a new hobby. Lately my hands have been itching for some creative makery, the kind of thing I can do while we watch a show or while we hang out together on the sofas. Before I take on the commitment of a full-blown, get-the-gear-and-buy-the-books hobby, I think I'll date a few projects first. These three ideas, ranging from super easy to pretty elaborate, are topping my list right now. I think they might even work as family activities with everyone pitching in (at least the first two, anyway):

1. I love a good garland and this is a fantastically easy sticker one. Got string? Some circle stickers? Go to town:

2.  Paint and frame some colorful rectangles. Classy, modern, and simple.

3. Embroider some red cloth in Swedish designs. Okay, this is admittedly on the complicated side of the spectrum and probably more commitment than just dating a project, but isn't it gorgeous? I'm obsessed!:

What projects are you up to?
