The first post under my project I posted this morning really made my day and made me realise that we can all make a difference in other people's lives. If it is so easy to do it while sewing and enjoying ourselves, why aren't there more posts in the projects section?

My challenge to everyone here is to get on and make something and show us what you've done.

That may be the ugliest most uncharitable thing I've seen posted by you. I'm so disappointed that someone looking to join our wonderful community full of sweet caring folks may only see this post and not give us a try.

Well said, noah! That's why I rarely come here anymore and probably why so many of the old reliable, pleasant, helpful folks have left. I see nothing "ugly or uncharitable" in your post. Now, I'll keep watch and see if my comment disappears like so many others I made in the past. I am surprised your comment hasn't been removed from the site. Now I've put in my two cents worth I'm leaving again! I have fond memories of the ways this site used to be and wish it were that way again as I do so miss it - but now I'm off to more friendly, helpful, cheerful places! Live is to short to dwell on this site's problems!

Nice challenge, Sue. I often forget to take pictures when in a hurry. And to make matters worse I misplaced my (SD)card reader. My Nikon has no way to connect directly to a PC so I need to buy a new card reader (and no doubt find the old one as soon as I have got a replacement).

Of course you will! That is in the rules of "lost and found!"

Murphy's law, I think the old saying is.

I would never be able to post a photo if it were not for my phone. I'm computer challenged and so write down my instructions for hooking up the camera and then promptly loose my directions.

What an inspiration to me and others. Thank you Sue for pointing this out.

...and remember -- it isn't about needing praise or approval... It is about sharing your talents to uplift and inspire others! No need to be perfect. Many have shown projects that didn't go the way they expected.

I just put one that not as good as I hoped....

Some mistakes make good lessons... or generate great tips.
You might feel a bit foolish. In that case this Dutch saying might make you feel better: even the best knitter occasionally drops a stitch.

Love that saying!

My problem is I don't know how to sew...….I get frustrated at my crooked lines and inability to figure out how something is suppose to go together......and then it is no longer fun, have had this "confusion" issue since my concussion, on the bright side of that it did wake up a crafty side and allowed me to teach myself digitizing and is weird that even with instructions my brain just sees it as mumbo jumbo and that is when the frustration comes in.....not excuses just an explanation why I don't sew...….I so love seeing what others make and am in awe at the beautiful things that are created! You are so right all have a positive impact in my life and what a difference it has made in my well being! Keep up showing all that inspires you, cuties......we all benefit from it!!!!

You inspire us all with your knitting!

You make quite an impact with all you do. You are like the Energizer Bunny - going (and making!) all the time. Love seeing your work.
