Well, that’s the first week of my final year at Uni finished with. I’m sure that I was supposed to spend more time actually working on the maths than I was, but meh. If the lecturers aren’t going to teach new stuff, I’m not going to waste my time revising stuff that I’ve seen so many times it’s written in indelible ink in my brain. I CAN’T forget this stuff, so obviously, I can’t see how anyone else can. *sighs*. But, that does mean that I’ve been busy crafting 🙂
So, I finished all the cards:
They don’t seem to fit in with the other cards, but hey, they were great fun to make 🙂
Soooooooo cute 🙂 And great fun to sew
And of course, you have to see the complete set
Really lovely set to sew, may do these again for any other cat lovers in my life
So, they were the first lot to get finished. I did 7 cards in a week. Not including the weekend- some people may have been shouted at on Friday evening, but I wanted them finished dammit! And they were finished 🙂
So, on Saturday, I wanted something small. After all, I’d just spent two weeks on those cats, I wanted something fast. So I got out one of my other keyrings, started it…and promptly remembered why I hadn’t done a second one before now. But, I persevered with the remarkably knotty yarn, the unlikely orange rather than red , and the tiny holes involved in 18 count aida, and got this:
The stitches are *really* squished in this 😦
I mean, seriously, who uses orange for a robin RED-breast??? Ahh well, all in all not the best cross stitching I’ve done *sighs*. This is likely to get sent to my grand-dad’s new girlfriend, just so it gets out of my life fairly permanently :P. Or maybe my mum. We shall see.
I only had a very little bit left on my Uncle’s hand warmers, so they were finished then (since I’d actually been to the yarn shop for the rest of the yarn I needed…)
Yay, finished too!
So they are ready to be packaged up with my aunt’s and sent off (nearer Christmas, obviously!).
So, having decided that that was enough IG crafting for a while, I started my Granddad’s bookmark, which is going to be very colourful. I haven’t really gotten anywhere with it yet (just the gold border), so no pic of that for you this week. However, this is a taste of how colourful it’s going to be, here’s my box of colour
All the colourfulness needed for my Granddad’s bookmark 🙂
Phew! A rather hectic week for crafting, hopefully next week will be too :). And hopefully next week I’ll remember to post on Saturday evening! See ya, and happy crafting
