Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

Just back from meeting our latest grandaughter, Rosie, this afternoon.  She is lovely, and her big sister, Charlotte,  is fascinated with her.  In the second and third photos, she is wrapped in the new shawl.  I am so glad it can be used now.

I was finishing the card before breakfast this morning so that the glue holding the ribbon and bow had time to harden and hold.  I was also pressing the shawl, and sewing in three more ends I had not seen before.

Having finished that big project, it is time to find the box of threads and get busy finishing off the unicorn cross stitch.  That has been going even longer than the shawl.   Watch this space for progress.

Congratulations Marg(and Geoff!)She really does have a mass of hair, doesn't she. She definitely models your shawl to perfection :).
Love to all of you Shaz (and Doug).
P.S.I do agree with Shaz in Oz about the word verification- I think it adds a lot of time to WOYWW! I never enabled it on mine, and I have never had a spam comment.
