Lockdown projects?

What have you been crafting over lockdown, - now that everything is easing up have you stopped, or really into it now? I recently made a bag for a friend that I enjoyed doing https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Nml4h0Keg1A/Xvt6yYZRJOI/AAAAAAAAdOM/MYOzLFGKZZIdJ_tOewsXUn-zy-XB5XwwQCK4BGAsYHg/w640-h434/IMG_2020...
