This year for the gifts for my Patchwork group I took my own advice and made the cord cuffs that I wrote about a few weeks ago.
It took a day to make 23 of them and I didn't have very many breaks. In fact I had a stiff neck and sore eyes from concentrating on the task. I had only one day to make them in because I had forgotten that this was the last meeting before Easter, that very evening.
When any member of the group travels we always bring back a square of fabric, about 8" (20cm), for each member of the group. My group does a lot of travelling and I have a big bundle of squares. I used these for the cord cuffs so that everyone would be different but I don't seem to have made any impression on the pile of squares.
When I gave them out the most previlant comment was "I could use 4 of these". So I think that my friends will be making more for themselves. For myself I need to have labels on each one so that I know what cord belongs to what device or piece of equipment. At the moment I have a container full of cord that I am not sure what is for which.
