Thank you everyone for the lovely comments on my last card, each and everyone of them is most welcome and appreciated. A warm welcome to Shaz fro Oz who is my latest Follower and not only that but my 100th one, I'm pure dead chuffed. I would have reached that number if blogger hadn't been playing silly beggers and deleting folk who were already following me. Does anyone notice any real difference from Blogger's interference?? I don't.
I did plan a bit of Candy giveaway when I reached the 100 mark and I will get that organised within the next week or so, so watch this space.
I have a mixture of my two passion to show today, first my card;
I've used a super lovely stamp set created by the very talented John Lockwood for Creative Expressions and I was given then by a lovely Blog Friend, Mrs. Duck. I wish I'd managed to photograph the card better.
The stamps are brilliant to use and I also used the new Colour Cloud to ink up the background to the main daisy.
Now as it happened, I'd knitted a cowl for Ang with a Daisy stitch, so the two just came together at the right time, and as she has both in her keeping I am now able to share them;
The colour of the cowl is actually purple, though it looks a bit blue here, I hope it will be many months before it need to be worn.
I've started a pair of mitts with colour work, and I'm hoping it's not too ambitious, I've had it back a couple of times and I've not knitted past the cuff yet, I'll persevere though.
We had the most awful rain and high winds last night, bad enough to keep us awake, so today has been a slow day, with a bit pf pottering here and there, but every time I sit down I can feel my eyes closing, mind you it's been three nights since I last had any decent sort of sleep. I do envy people who sleep like logs, I long ago lost my sleep pattern, but I did think that having stopped working and that as my stress lessened I would sleep better, hasn't really gone that way though.
That is me for now, off to inspect the oven and see how the roast is coming along, enjoy the rest of your Sunday and see you soon,
