A Small Update

Hey all

Not done a lot of stitching. I finished a small xmas penguin card but it's part of a set of 6 so i'm waiting till I've done all 6 to put photos up.

I've been going through all my magazines recently, cutting out charts and putting them into categories and then filing them (not my mother's daughter for nothing). Means I can see all the charts I have (literally hundreds) and if I'm looking for something specific then I can find it faster, rather than looking through all my mags. I think I'm going to stop buying kits (unless it's a really really good deal at a craft show) and buy a full set of threads and some material. Means I can work through some of my charts. I'd love to do enought to sell them at the Skegness Victorian xmas market. Cards and xstitches.

Did my acting class on my own again tonight (well i took the better half for support and to talk about mics to fill some time for me) and it went really well. Played games for the 1st hour then did script work with them for the 2nd hour.

Not done anything weddingy recently. Waiting till we've visited the venues and decided which we like. A lot of things could change. We may not like any of them and decide sod it, save the cash and have it in a marquee in the back garden (well not mine as I don't have one).

Thats all for now. Going horse riding tomorrow in my new jodphurs *does a lickle jump*

Hope you're all well xxxx

I'm Back =D


After being a bad blogger for quite a while, I am back and trying to be good.

I have only recently got my card making bug back but my stitching bug has always been running around.

I don't go to college anymore so i have plenty of free time to be crafty until i find a job. My OH is as supportive as ever and loves my craft making so much that he has even offered to take me to a craft show!!! along with the wedding show he's going to take me to that makes me very happy but with a lot of money to save lol.

I've also gotten into making things like bags and clothes. I made my costume for the college easter show b4 i left which i was very proud of.

I may end up using this blog for more than archiving my crafts. I may also use it for ideas for the wedding that i really love that will inspire me to make things. Hopefully this time i will remember to keep this updated at least once a week.
Below are several images of the stuff i have been doing recently.




I made the cushion above for my grandma to go with the birdie cross stitch and the twins stitch was for my cousin who had twins. The cross stitch right at the top went to my grandma and grandad.



A Quick kit i got for 50p!!!!


Valentines day card for my OH







If you've made it this far, well done lol.
Below are some of the cards I have made recently



Well that's all for now. Thankyou for looking (if you made it this far lol).
Hope everyone if ok xxx
