Well, I dispell the myth because I had a great day:)
I also got back into crafting after taking some time off (due to various reasons - our heating was broken, then our kitchen flooded - but we won't talk about that!!).
To ease myself in, I started with some easy projects.
My friend Laura brought me some really cute ribbon (among other things like Southern Comfort flavoured coffee... YUM!!) when she visited over Christmas so I used it, an old moisturiser tub, some scrap material & some stuffing to make a little pin cushion with storage inside.
Here's the ribbon:
And here's the little pin cushion thing:
I also used a really cool tutorial (http://howaboutorange.blogspot.com/2009/06/recycled-magazine-coasters.html) about how to make magazine cover coasters so now I'm hooked...
Even my tea cup is happy with it's cool new coaster:)
Hope you had a great day too
