A card for my Yoga teacher friend...I used the negative of the die cuts to make this card, so have them to use again in another card! I put some patterned paper behind the cardstock...I am still learning my way!
Here are two birthday cards that I made using a font and typing in the number 8 twice and joining them together...I put the girls names into the patterned paper to personalize them....
Aine had her First Confession this week...I did a simple card for her and made the scallop pattern up myself in my die cut machine...learning how to weld shapes in the software!
I am waiting for some other supplies I ordered from the States soon so I can do some stamping, embossing and other fun cardmaking ideas I've been learning about... Can't wait!
Here are a few blocks that I've done for February and March for the Block Lotto:
String Hearts for February
Disappearing Four Patch for March...
I am having fun doing some different blocks each month, and I will have a chance to win some blocks each month...no luck my first two months, but will keep my fingers crossed for March, I like the simple but interesting blocks!
My friend's chemo quilt is done!! Need to get some nice Irish Barry's Tea and some crunchie bars to put in the box and then it will be ready to send.
Hope it makes it there safe, some of my January blocks from the block lotto haven't made it to their destinations yet and I'm not too happy about that!
I've started on some crazy complex socks for a friend of mine... They are called Hwaet socks...they have the middle English words for Beowulf on them!! Here is a photo of the socks the designer has done...will show mine after I've made a little more progress, just finished the first line of words! If you are interested the link to the pattern is here.
Doing much better this year at keeping this blog updated, I hope I can keep on doing it! I should be able to start putting some weight on my leg again next week, my six weeks of hopping are nearly done, woo hoo!! More soon...
