I’ve still managed to work on some projects this week as Mr C did all of the present wrapping whilst I was at work one day so I haven’t had to spend every evening making a mess with tape and paper. (He will definitely be on Santa’s good list for doing that job!) Instead, I’ve had a trip down memory lane, a play with glitter and ink and dug out an old WIP.
This week it is my mum and my auntie’s birthday, so I’ve made two fairy themed cards for them. They are not quite identical cards because they are not identical twins! I used two shades of purple ink, layered until I was happy with the depth of colour, for the background. I then die cut two fairies from white card, and printed greetings which read ‘Have a fairy happy birthday’. The finishing touch was a lot of Nuvo glitter drops, which Mrs Cobs (of Cobweborium Emporium fame) sent me back in September. I was really happy with how they turned out!
Because I have finished all of my other projects now, I dug deep in my craft corner and pulled out my bag with the yarn and pattern for my Attic 24 blooming flower cushion which I started in the summer. I’ve worked another 4 rounds (2 plain rounds and 2 petal rounds) and I’m still pleased with how it’s coming along. I’d really love to have this finished soon so I can use it!
That’s all for now! Mr C is working loads over Christmas so I will have some time on my hands for working on my projects. I’d like to finish the cushion before I start any more new things. What are you working on? Are you hoping for any crafty items for Christmas?
