Rockers for Oldie for Friday!

Hello to all my crafty friends and anyone how visits, it always a pleasure to have you here.
Thank you all for all the lovely comments on the Celtic Cat die, It was a lovely die to use and I'm pleased you liked it.

Do you remember I was looking for curtains, well I managed to find something similar to the Dunelm ones I liked in Next, similar in respect that they are plaid and a woven, heavier material. With my good man's help got windows washed and put up the curtains and I am very pleased with them. oh the things that make me happy!! changed days.

I'm here with my Oldie for Friday, which is Erika of idea to share something you've made a wee while ago, it doesn't need to be a card, could be sewing, knitting, I've even put up an oldie photo of Alistair and myself. It's fun so why not join in.
These were made from a CC kit and I think they were requested for some children, but can't quite remember. Very easy to make.

We are off to the cinema tonight to see Imitation about Alan Turin and the Enigma story.  The lovely Benedict Cumberbatch is the main lead and I really like him as an actor. Looking forward to that.

We have had fog all morning in varying degrees of thickness. When Teallach came in this morning it was real pea soup, then it lifted within the time of me feed him and making a coffee, and has been down and lifted several times. It really is Winter.

That's me for now folks I hope you weekend is good, I'll be singing all tomorrow, rehearsal in afternoon and concert in the evening, sore throat on Sunday, but love it, not the sore throat of course, but the concert and all the buzz of performing.

Bye and

The rocker cards still look good, funny how shapes go in and out of fashion.
Enjoy your concert, hope the throat is OK

Hi Kate, love your rocker cards and wouldn't have thought they were oldies at all. That shape of card seems to be making something of a bit of a comeback ... in fact, I made a few for Christmas, for my great-grands, a few weeks ago :) It sounds as though you have a busy weekend ahead, and an enjoyable one at that. Have a lovely time. Elizabeth xx

Hi Kate,

Thank you so much for the reminder of rocker cards, as I have to make a 1st Christmas one for a friends great grandson, and I do think a rocker one would be great.

Hi Kate
Well, I must be off my rocker as I appear to have missed this lol!
I love cards that are unusual so a rocker or two is fab for me.
Glad you got your curtains sorted. They sound nice and warm for the Winter.
Best wishes.
