A card for Vicki


Hi guys,

Well I finally made a card for a friend at work. It as been a long time since I made a card really…….been so into my cross stitch……trying to shuttle tat…….and my crochet.

Here is the card I made:


The front I have used the stamp from Wild Rose Studio – Fergus with cupcake. I have used my water colours. Nesties of course. I have used papers from Kate Knight Spring Fling collection. I have also used one of my tatted butterflies.


The image on the inside is another image from the Wild Rose Studio – Fergus Wishing also used water colours. I have used a Happy Birthday stamp from Docrafts which I have had for years. I have used some card candy and of course the ever present nesties.


I have to say I do love Fergus.

Thanks for looking and do leave a message so I can come and see you.

Crocheted bag


Hi guys,

Well the bag I was making for my trip to the theatre is a little bit bigger then I thought it was going to be……….


It is too big but I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!


Just need someone to give me  a lesson on how to line it and then it will be completely done.


Smudge found it very quickly and give me a dirty look when I moved it as he was using it as a pillow. I am trying to type this at the moment with him laid out in front of the PC.

Hope you like.

Yummy Wool!


Hi guys,

Well I managed to drag Duncan to the wool shop for some yummy wool. He is taking me out for our 1st Anniversary next month and I wanted to crochet a little bag for the night………….we are going to the theatre…….


It called Wendy Pampas Super chunky. It is really soft and I need to do my drooling before I make anything with it. I have also had to hide the wool from Smudge who was straight onto the guard duty with it.


Do you think he is comfy?


I think the look means this is mine!

Well I could not get to my desk really today with Smudge on the desk and the new addition on my chair. So I had to make other plans and this is what I did.


I had to move some crafting to my bed.


My new cross stitch project.


It is a good thing we can craft in any place. Yes 2 pencils as sometimes the cats try to help so it is 1 pencil for me and 1 for them………

Well I need to get some more stitching done.

See ya soon
