What?! . . . It's December?!

. . . where has all the months gone?  I'm sure someone stole November from right under my nose!  


 I am frantically trying to catch up on all the things I have to do for Christmas - not only for me, but for Mum as well, as she is unable to get out and about on her own, but, of course, still wants to 'do' Christmas, not the meal, just cards and presents - so that means I have to do twice the amount of organising of those things.  Oh, well.  This is why I have been so remiss with my blog visits and comments - not to mention, my posts, for which, I must apologise profusely!

Enough of the waffle, here are a couple more Christmas cards that I have managed to make!  They are quick and simple. as that is all I have time for.  The embossing folder is one I saw my good friend Bonnie Klass use in her post HERE which, then, of course, I had to buy, because I loved it so!  Bonnie made me do it!  Well, that's what I tell everybody! 😉  Thanks Bonnie!

A Few More Christmas Cards


Hello lovely crafters!  I hope you are all well.  Here as promised are a few more 'batch processed cards'  for my 2017 Christmas card list.  I am going to have to really go some to get enough made, so please excuse my rushed posts.

A Different Project


Hello my lovelies.  I hope you are all well and having a good weekend!  I have gotten way behind with my visiting and commenting I'm afraid, because I have been working on a sewing project.

Those of you who follow me will know that I recently bought a new sewing machine - my old one needed a crane to get it out of the bottom of my wardrobe - and so, I never really used it.  Of course, in my teens and early twenties I used to make quite a few clothes, but as time went by, life got in the way and clothes were so cheap to buy, that I kind of gave up on sewing.

However, with my new lightweight machine I have found it so much more convenient to use!  So, here is my latest project. Don't look too closely, it's a bit rough and in dire need of some proper 'finishing off', but it's nearly there I think.

I didn't use a pattern, I just 'cloned' one of my dresses in my wardrobe that I liked the fit of.  But, I have bought some patterns now, so hopefully, future projects will look far better.

Here is a closer look and there will be some cards in the next couple of days too!


A closer look at the fabric (scuba), which I had never heard of until I purchased it for this project!
