Being Creative While Recovering

Posted on: Thursday, July 29th, 2010 in: Crafts, General

This winter has seen me needing to recover from a couple of injuries that have kept me a little limited in what I do. One was a broken rib and the other was a sprained hand. Both these injuries restricted what I was able to do outside, so I have been pottering along as best […]
