I've finally got round to creating a blog!! It's only taken me forever!! You'll have to bear with me as it will take me a while to figure out how to do everything!!

Crochet this time

Following on from my knitting, I enrolled on another course to learn how to crochet. Never done anyone so difficult in my life!! It took me two and a half hours and a LOT of help to just get this. Think it will take a huge amount of time to hone these skills!!

A new kind of crafting

Something totally different for me today. I've been wanting to learn how to knit and crochet for a while now and a friend told me she'd booked onto a knitting course at a local shop. I signed up as well and learned how to cast on, knit, purl and cast off today. Can't tell you how proud I am!!!
One of the girls also learning to knit mentioned that she was running a crochet course in a few weeks so as soon as we'd finished, I signed up for that one too. Then went shopping for wool and needles. Hopefully you'll see some more knitting posts from me in the future!!
Hope everyone's having a nice weekend and getting in lots of crafting xx

Happy bank holiday weekend everyone.

I've been out in the garden all day potting on some of the veg seeds I started a few weeks ago and filling one of the raised beds in an effort to get my hubby to get a move on making the other two!!

Just one card this week. I have a thing for owls at the moment and have been searching for a branch type die to make some cards with some stickers I got from accessorise ages ago. Found a tim holtz one so thought I'd give it a try. I just keep looking at them as I'm not sure what I think overall. It's not a branch die and I'm not sure if it looks enough like a branch to work properly. I had some sentiments from the tulip range which I added, with 2 lines scored round the edge and gold glamour dust in between. Whaddya think? Xx
