Last week's HubMob on Eye and Ear Care gathered 22 official contributions. Thanks to all the HubMobsters who took part in it. A special mention to Ethel Smith our most prolific HubMobster last week with three entries, Well done Ethel!
This week we are going to help Larry Freeman to fill up and give some hub love to one of the categories he created for us: Crafts & Handiwork. For those of you who are not familiar with Larry, he is a member of the HubPages team; he is really helpful and always there to answer your questions. It was Larry who created the "broken link" finder and who is always updating and creating new features in HubPages to make our writing experience more enjoyable. Thanks Larry!
Yesterday I went to a Mediaeval festival and I had the opportunity to appreciate ancient forms of handcrafts, all so beautiful and delicate that they are on their own a form of art. The people who make them are artisans who have learnt skills that hopefully will pass down to new generations. Making things with one's hands can be daunting for beginners, but it is a greatly satisfying when the work is finished. If you have any special skill, this is the time to hub about it, to share your knowledge and why not maybe start some of us in the practice of your favourite handiwork.
Some topics that need HubLove this week are:

Looks fun! Not sure what I'm doing yet but I'll get on it!!
Haha That's awesome!
Ok, here's my hub:
I can create more then one right?!
So anyways I love the idea of flower pressing, I tried it when I was 6 and stained my mom's dictionary.. maybe this can other people from making some of my many mistakes on this topic!
Heh, I hope no one minds but I wrote another HubMob!
I had a lot of fun writing this because paper quilling is something I used to do a lot, and I enjoyed teaching it to my friends.. thought I'd share here! Really hope no one minds.. LOL!
That's great you can contribute with as many hubs as you want, there is no limit to the number of entries.
By the way, your Flower pressing Hub is already on the front page of the Crafts & Handiwork category : http://hubpages.com/topics/arts-and-cra … ndiwork/11 Well done!

Another bunch of really interesting titles this week. You guys rock!
http://hubpages.com/hub/Weaving-Your-Ho … HubMob-Hub
What an amazing bunch of hubs this time - my goodness, such a talented bunch of people
Here is my hub about woven ribbon pillow covers - been around for a while but some lovely new ribbons to play with...
Here's my hubmob entry for this week.
Well - I couldn't figure out which craft I wanted to write about, so here's my second entry...this one is about the art of Batiking
http://hubpages.com/hub/Traditional-Ind … ic-Picture
Sorry, but do we earn from google adsense doing this? May be a silly question, but i need to earn desperately.
Here we go! I wrote another hub for this...
I love flower pens they are so much fun, I used to make them but not anymore, here you go:
Yerrrrrrrrrr in there, Cam....again.
You just may be the most prolific HubMobster this week!
http://hubpages.com/hub/Stumpwork--Coun … ork-Hubmob
Here's another one
Stumpwork is a very old form of embellished embroidery similar to appilque in many ways. The other two, ribbon embroidery and counted cross stitch, are lovely art forms in their own right.
Here's mine.. Make a styrofoam tabletop waterfall!
http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Make-a-T … -Waterfall
The Crafty HubMob hub has been updated.
RedElf, I've never heard of stumpwork before, sounds interesting.
Thanks, Shirley, it can be really strange looking too, but I love all the textures of the different materials. It's a kind of three-dimensional fabric collage, but with clearly defined shapes. Neat stuff.
I love crafts, but I found that interviewing someone last week for my Hubmob topic created some interesting results. When I ran into Ol' Toothless Jake Goldbug whittling on his porch high in a remote area of the blue mountains yonder, I knew I just had to interview him.
