Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

All the Christmas cards have bnow been finished (probably!) I need 13 (well, 12 if I get away with giving my parents a shared card), and I’ve made 12!

I showed the first 6 last week, and then I completed another 6 this week. Somehow I have lots of free time (despite feeling massively busy all the time???)

Anyway, onto the snowflake cards!

I’m not wildly keen on this design (I dissect everything, clearly. Why can’t I just smile, wave and move on???). I feel that there are too many lines in the innermost star, and I really didn’t like stitching the outer bits. Ahh well, pretty card, lesson learnt!

This one was great fun to stitch, although I’m less impressed with the final outcome. It also looks wildly different from the original hole punching, which I find very amusing!!!

And finally:I love this one! The hearts are cute, and the inner circle was great fun to stitch ๐Ÿ™‚ I even think I prefer the snowflake this way around, rather than having the point on top ๐Ÿ™‚


And so now these are finished, I can start a new project at my desk… check back on Sunday to see what it is (hint: it’s an old one I’m digging out of the UFO pile…)
