Hello Everyone, hoping all is well with you and that you've been having a good day.
Another cold, bitter really, but sunny. I didn't wrap up enough when I went into town, so I didn't waste anytime, business done and back home.
Thank you for your kind comments on my last card and the photographs. It's always appreciated as I know everyone has a bus life.
I was delighted to be a Top Three Winner in the Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge, I don't do many challenges but always try to make a card for this one. Thought I would just boast a bit lol😊
I had the most sleepless night last night, I kept wakening up from 12.30, so by 4.30 I decided to get up and try and finish one of the socks I'm knitting for Damian. Teallach was sound asleep on his cushion when I went downstairs and decided that he was staying on his cushion so just ignored me.
Anyway got the sock finished, but what a phaff as I was struggling to understand the pattern. It's the first time I've made socks on a circular needle, I always use 4 needles and trying to do the decreasing was really awkward, I had to eventually return to the 4 needles. In the circular needle's favour, I thought it made a a neater leg. However, one sock done and another started, so he should have them for Christmas, at least that's the plan.
I'm scheduling this post for tomorrow joining Erika of Snappy Crafts in a Friday Oldie share, and you can find Erika here.
This is just a fun thing where we share something handmade from an earlier time in our crafting journey. It can be anything not just a card. there are quire a few of us joining Erika now and it's interesting to see how our crafting styles have changed, here is what I've found to share;
Well you can tell I'm an animal lover, I just think this image is adorable. It's all from a CD and I've added some embellishments. Can't for the life of me remember what CD it is.
So that's me for now, it will be an early night and hopefully a decent sleep. Take care of yourselves,
