I am in paper heaven!
I found these in Lidl yesterday…
Almost A3 sized card, paper, corragated (sp? I’ve tried every vowel and it’s still not right!) card, printed vellum paper, printed card, faux handmade paper and that slimey plastic-y paper stuff, plus an A4 sized cutting board and, yes, and a craft knife, with a good weight on it too.
All for £2.99
You can pay £2.99 just for 5 sheets of plain vellum in some places!
As you can tell, I am well chuffed!
Oh and I got these too, which will be fab for Christmas pressies…
Calenders with blank spaces for kids to draw on!
Talking about Christmas, we were making mitten tree decorations at “Family Crafts” yesterday, some have come out really nice.
I won’t bore you with it all, but if you want the full story, go on over to “CandoCrafts”
I don’t think I have ever mentioned to you, my crochet sampler. I only thought about it when I was uploading stuff for Ravelry (No, I don’t think I’m addicted, although it is fun, and useful, but as a lot of people have said, very, very time consuming!)
Anyway, here it is…
Basically, all I’m doing is practicing crochet stitches, hopefully by Christmas it will be big enough to call a throw, and I’ll give it to my mum.
The yarn is Wendy Allegra that I’ve had in my stash for a while and wasn’t sure what to do with it. That you can see is 100g worth, I’m now starting on the Wendy Sheepskin.
This is a fantastic piece of crochet… Seahorse’s Babette…just stunning!
I must add, I can beat that “dodgy pattern”! I’ll sort it out another time though.
Right, I’m off to sit naked in my mound of gorgeous paper…(ahem!)
J is off to Cardigan, gigging again, so I may well spend the evening scrapbooking with a glass of whiskey…if I can stay up passed 9pm that is!
