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...

So I have copied my blog onto a new address - kept to blogspot for now as was easy for the images, but got a new template.

Sewing Bee? Anyone watching

Gardening

I have ordered seeds, and some plants, had compost delivered. and now just ordered a larger heated propogator. really hoping it will come reasonably quickly.

Gardening anyone?

Are you planting seeds for the garden? Veg or flowers maybe? I can't decide whether to get stuck in or wait and see and maybe just buy some plug plants.
