there have been some strange things going on here over the Easter holiday. Come with me....
......for her birthday Jane received some new stash which included a book on learning to crochet. I knew that this has been on her bucket list for ages and no sooner had her birthday passed then out came some very strange implements.
Just take a looks at these thing....they could do any awful lot of damage. There is a poor bird which has been fashioned into something metallic, that beak looks very sharp. The green and blue shiny thing are obvious called 5.000mm and 4.000mm, I wonder if they are related?
Anyway, off Jane went to the High Street last week to find a few balls of fluffy stuff she called wool. She had already had a practice with some off cuts from Daisy's baby hats and learnt some stitches called chain (nothing metal though, how very odd) double and treble crochet.
starting her first Nanna square, oh actually it might be called a Granny square. She chained 6 stitches and linked then into a circle and off she went. I heard her talking about shells and runways but anyway this started to appear.
I could have something like this as a blankie for my box where I sleep at night,
Look I can't get on it....you need to keep going".
So over the Easter holidays my blankie got bigger...............
and bigger ..................
and eventually Jane stopped using those instruments of torture and produced this.
Now Jane loves to enter card challenges and she wants to me share one here.
Today's card obviously has to feature a cat of course. She says this is very "Clean and Simple" for her and it was a congratulations card she made for her DD when she passed her exams recently. She used Kraft card as the base.
She used a stamp from hers stash and stamped the sentiment onto her MB cloud die. The little butterfly is MS.
She would like to enter her card into the following challenges;
Little Claires use kraft card
Country View crafts use Kraft card
