A Pair Of Crochet Blankets

-oOo-

At some point in April I did a post where I showed you what I was using to make a pair of crochet blankets, and said that I’d finished one – other than sewing the ends in.  You can see the post – here – if you haven’t seen it previously.

Well I’ve now finished off the ends on the first one and crocheted the second one.   I used six 200g balls of the yarn I showed you per blanket, so they are not a cheap make. But I think that they look quite nice and will be lovely and warm on the beds in the spare room.

This is the one I showed you before, but this time on the bottom bed of the new bunk beds we’ve bought for the, very small, spare room.

And this is the second one I’ve just completed hanging off the side of the top bunk with some pillows stopping it from sliding.

Not much difference to look at from the first LOL.

And this is how it looks like on the top bunk.

Here you can see both blankets in place.

.

So, that’s this particular blankets project completed.  I do need to get on and do more of the patchwork quilts that are to go on the beds on top of them, so expect another post on the progress of those before long. Plus I have several UFO crochet projects I now need to pull out of hiding and see which one I’ll tackle completing next.

Cards For 18th Birthday

18th Birthday Cards

-oOo-

A friend mentioned that she would be needing 18th Birthday cards before long, so when I got home I started thinking about making a few. Only problem was I’d forgotten to ask whether she needed Welsh or English cards, and whether they were for boys or girls.  I even forgot to ask if they had specific interests or tastes.  Duh! Brain not in gear.

But I decided to have a go at making a bit of an assortment as I didn’t have any specifically for 18th birthdays in my boxes of cards at the moment, and it would be easier to discuss what sort of thing she was looking for if I had something to show her.

These are what I came up with.

Male themed, English. I believe the pieces to make this 8″ square card were from a Kanban kit.

This one is a female, Welsh, card made using a Hunkydory filigree collection. I’ve put 4 small 18s on this card in each corner, rather than one big number.

This 8″ square xard is made using Hunkydory decolarge. I kept one of the layers to decorate the insert and used foam tape to build up some of the layers on the ftont.

This one I used a “Happy Birthday To You” greeting from the collection to make an English card.

This time I’ve gone subtle for the number 18 putting it on twice.

If you’ve not spotted them yet have a look at this clo8seup.

One on the roof of the bird feeder table and one on the hanging feeder.

Back to a male themed card next. This time in welsh.

Unfortunatel I needed to take the photo at an angle to prevent the shine overshadowing the image, and when I took the photo at this angle the eording “Penblwydd Hapus” and the large numbers, at the top left of the card, don’t show so well in the photo.

The next is the largest  of this batch of cards, being an A3 sheet of Centura Pearl cardstock tyat I scored, folded, cut down the centre of the front, cut a piece off the right side, scored both sides, thenfolded the sides as well to make a double easel.

This is the topper on the right. It’s a fully made up decolarge topper from Hunkeydory.

I used an A4 coordinating cardstock to decorate the basevthe base and used pieces from a second set of the same image ad stoppers for both side easels.

And this is what the card looked like

The dimension on the topper and stoppers was created using 2mm derp, double sided, foam tape.

.

That’s it for today.  More crafting TO COME before too long, so please do pop in for a look again.

UFO Quilting –  It’s Curtains!

-oOo-

I’m starting today with a bit of deviation from the two patchwork quilts I’m working on. And going to talk curtains.

When I had help to start clearing out the spare room, prior to painting, new carpet and new bunk beds, the curtains went in the wash.  Now I think that they were always a little bit short for the window, having come from my gran’s old place with my parents when they moved in here, (and other family members also remember there being a gap with some trinkets on the window sill) but I’m also sure that when we hung them back up there was more of a gap. In any case I didn’t want to either buy or make new curtains, because I’ve already taken on a big project with what I’d already planned to do for the spare room.

But once I’d cut out all the blocks needed for the two patchwork quilt fronts I realised I had enough bits of material left to make smaller blocks that I could put randomly along the bottom of the curtains, that would not only solve the problem of the gap between curtains and window sil, but would also pull the curtains into the random patchwork look of the completed quilts.

This is what I landed up with. One of the curtains –

And this is both of them hung at the window of the small spare room. Not a lot of room, so you can’t really see both I know.

But, I still had some bits left over – so I decided to add a border to the pillow cases to make them look a part of the theme as well.

So this is one of them.

And one the bottom bunk of the bed waiting for me to finish the quilt.

.

So, now it’s back to do more work on the quilts. Please keep an eye out for more posts about how I’m getting on with this “‘Big’ Work In Progress” in the future.

Digital Scrapbook Page

-oOo-

If you’ve followed my blog post for any length of time you will have realised that gardening is one of my other hobbies in addition to crafting. Because of my disabling conditions the vast majority of my gardening is done in a variety of containers while I’m sitting down.

My tower of strawberry plants looked rather dismal last month, before I cut off all the dead or old leaves, fed the tower with liquid fertiliser, and put a net onto the frame around it to give it some protection.

By May the plants are in bloom and look as if I may get a bumper crop.

This month, on the Dragons Lair Designs Blog there is a challenge to creat something using one kit – Citrus Celebrations.

To take part in the challenge you need to go to the DLD Etsy store and buy the Cirtus Celebrations mini kit.

Then collect the 2 parts of the free download from the blog.

Then have fun makeing something using items from the digital downloads.  Full instructions are on the blog.

I decided to make a digital scrapbook layout showing my strawberry tower before I worked on it, and how it looks now with flowers all over it.

This is what I came up with.

Hopefully, before the end of next month, I’ll have red strawberries to photograph and eat. Then I can create another scrapbook layout to show you.

A Little Bit Of Colouring

-oOo-

Over in the Dragons Lair Designs Fan Group on Facebook different activities take place. One of these activities is a colouring challenge where those who want to take part are given a digital stamp to colour and use in a project. This project must be photographed and the photo uploaded to the group. Failure to upload a photo means you can not have the next free image to work with.

For May the image group members can request for free in the group is this one.

Just join the DLD Fan Group on Facebook to get the image and join in.

I decided to make a random card with her. By random I mean that after colouring I cut her out in a random shape, cut a few other bits of backing paper in random shapes, and threw a handful of paper flowers in the air and stuck them on randomly where they landed – except for the ones that actually landed on the topper.

The digi stamp was coloured using ProMarkers – Sandstone, Vanilla, Tawny Owl, Raw Sienna, Buttercup, Tulip Yellow, Praline, Tequila Sunrise, Warm Gray 1.

The peice of green background I used as a mat behind the coloured in digi stamp, as well as the blue piece are both printouts from the DLD Essential Plains digital downloads. I love the fact that there is a slight graduation in colour depth accross these backgrounds rather than them being a flat colour and have used them on so many different projects since I got them.

The other two bits of backgrounds I used were from my stash – bits left from a Hunkydory make I think. The flowers were punched using two different punches from three shades of yellow from the Hunkydory pad of different shades of yellow paper.  I used the same Praline marker as I’d used on the digi to put centeres to all the flowers and a wighly libe around the outside of the 8″ square card I’d used.

Here’s the finished card.

UFO Quilting – An Further Update

-oOo-

Today is another update on how I’m progressing with the patchwork fronts for my two single bed quilts for our new bunk beds.

In my last update about this project I told you I had finished one patchwork front.

Well, I’ve had my sewing machine out on the kitchen table again, and had several more short sessions of sewing up 8″ square blocks and adding them to the second quilt front.

And –

The good news is that I’ve now finished the second patchwork quilt front.

The matress that was airing, that I used to spread out the first quilt front, has now been put on the top bunk, but I’ve managed to hang this second patchwork out over the side of the bunk to photograph it, using some pillows to weight down the one row that’s over the top to hold it in place.

Quite like the first one, obviously, as I’d used the same materials in 8″ blocks for both, but because I’d added blocks randomly there is some difference in actual layout between them.

So now it is on with the next stage of the project – preparing the fronts ready for the actual quilting. I went over the 1st one carefully snipping off thread ends before begining the actual layering.

Now I know many do the layering on the floor, but my health/disabling conditions mean I can’t do that. So my solution is to open out the pull out sofa bed and work on that while sitting on a box stool.

I’ve got as far as just spreading everything out.

I know I had done some measuring and calculating before staring the patchwork, and cutting the black cotton sheet and the wadding, but I wanted to be sure that the wadding was slightly larger than the patchwork and the backing larger than that – and would you beliece it – I’d actually got things right. And as it is coming out at just longer and wider than the top of a double bed sized sofa bed I know it will totally cover somebody sleeping in either of the two 3 foot, single bed, sized bunks.

And rest! I’m finding the whole project an exhausting, mamoth, task, and have to rest a lot both while working on each stage of the project and before I tackle the next step, but I am pleased with how my “Big” Work In Progress is coming along.

.

So, that’s how far I’ve got at the point of writing this post, but keep an eye out for more posts about how I’m getting on with this “‘Big’ Work In Progress” in the future.

A Few Cards

 Posted by at 08:00 am

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog
Welsh Cards

-oOo-

Good morning everybody!

There was a birthday of a family member at the start of the month so I needed to make a card each for my mother and I to send and thought that while I was at it I’d have a bit of a play and make some more than I needed.  I showed you the sympathy cards I made in an earlier post – here.

So now it’s time to show you my other creations from that cardmaking session.

.

Firstly – out came an asortment of card making items. These included prints I’d done in a previous screen printing session that hadn’t turned out so good, some Hunkydory filigree frames kit items, and an assortment of Pollyanna Pickering die cut toppers and inserts, as well as several sheets of cardstock I’d printed out previously from the Dragons Lair Designs Essential Plains digital downloads.

So, lets go through them one by one.

Starting with the two cards made using the badly printed screen prints I showed you previously to make birthday cards.

I coloured this one using some Spectrum Noir sparkle pens and a green promarker. I used Duo circle dies to cut out the image and a mat from a sheet printed with a pink coloured background from the DLD Essentials downloads.  I also cut out the butterflies from the same cardstock using part of a die that came free on a Tattered Lade magazine. The main green mat and the strip over the white ribon (that came wraped around a pillowcase I bought) were from another sheet from the DLD Essentials downloads. Butterfly bodies were simply coloured in black using a fineliner pen, and then everything was glued together. I cut off the sploged part of the screen print once I’d matted it on the pink and placed it at the side of the card to disguise the fact that it didn’t print correctly.

Next came a card where the screen print was just over the edge.

I again used my circle Duo dies to not only cut out the screen printed image after colouring it as previously, but I also used different sized dies from the same set to cut out a variety of sixed circles from different colours from the DLD Essentials. I cut a slice off the edge of several of these before starting to glue the circles in place, hopefully disguising the fact that the main topper image had a bit printed over the edge. The blue background paper also came from the Essentials collection.

Next came a card from the Hunkydory filigree collection, on which I’ve simply put Llongyfarchiadau, which is Welsh fot Congratulations.  I think this one is right for a wedding.  I only used the topper and filligree frame from the kit and used cardstock and peeloffs from my kit, which means I have more to play with again.

Looks like I didn’t photograph the matching insert to this one.

Next cones a few cards made using Pollyanna Pickering artwork.

A5 base card from my stash and red background from a Hunkydory pad of various shades of red papers.

And the insert for it where I’d used a piece of the paper I’d used for matting over the pre-printed greeting so that I could put a Welsh greeting in instead – this time a Happy Birthday card.

A simple green mat behind the topper, again it came from a Hunkydory pad of papers, this time of green shades.

And the insert that I put inside. Again, I added a panel to change it to a Welsh birthday card.

For this card I just framed the topper with a narrow margine of a black cardstock showing and left the card front mostly white. I went round the black frame and the outside of the base card with gold peeloffs.

And the insert for it, once again changed to a Welsh birthday greeting.

.

I’ve got a few images that I’d pulled out still waiting to be crafted with, but it probably won’t be for a while as the person I’ve got in mind to receive one of the toppers on a card doesn’t have his birthday until the end of June and I’m spending more time out in the garden these days and less inside crafting. Long may this nice weather remain – provided it doesn’t get too hot!

A Simply Decorated Box

A Decorated Box

-oOo-

Many of you, who have visited my blog over a period of time, will know that, in addition to crafting, one of my other hobbies is gardening.  With my health/disability issues, the vast majority of my gardening us done in troughs, tubs and raised beds, with me sitting down, but I do like to grow things, and if there are things I can’t do I get family members to help.

I had been keeping my seeds in an old plastic biscuit box, but that had been needed for something else, so I decided to get a wooden box to keep my seeds in.

I did buy one that is probably larger than I’ll ever need for the amount of seeds I buy each year, but I decided that it would be a good idea to keep labels, a pencil, etc., in there as well. So went for an extra large wooden box.

This is what it looked like before I did anything to it.

I said in my title that I was going for a simple decoration for this box. I didn’t want dimensional embelishments that would get knocked off when it is carried around and used, so what I did first was give the whole of the outside of the box a thin coat of white gesso.  I wanted to give it a bit of a whitewashed look but decided that wanted to see the woodgrain through it.

I then went to my computer and opened a blank page in MS Publisher.  I typed the word “Hadau”, which is Welsh for “Seeds”, and chose a brown colour.  I also used the facility in the software to search for an image of a seedling that was marked ‘creative commons licence’ (I hope the image was correctly marked as such because I don’t want to be breaking anybody’s copyright for an image even for a one off, personal use item like this).  This I resized and then did a copy and flipped it, then printed the items out onto white paper.

I cut the writing out as a rectangle and cut my chosen image as carefully as I could around the outline.  I used Pinflair bookbindibg glue to stick the seedling image to the front of the box at each of the bottom corners and the wording panel to the lid of the box.

Next I took strips of double sided tape and put them around the wording panel overlapping the edge of the paper and onto the box lid. After taking off the backibg paper I applied some IndigoBlu Guikding Flakes to the sticky strips. I can’t actually remember which  colour mixture I used.

This is what the wording panel looked like after guilding.

I then decided to add further strips of double sided tape over the  lid either side of the wording panel and guild those as well.

A quick coat of matt varnish and the project was complete – like I said  – a simple look.

This is what the front of the box looks like.

And here’s a look at the top.

.

So, that’s this particular project completed.  I think I need to get more photos of what I’m up to in the garden to show you all at some point – perhaps a scrapbook layout is called for before long.

Crafting With Another Screen Print

-oOo-

In an earlier post I showed you a small batch of Screen Prints I’d done one day before I got out of steam and had to clear away and rest.

I had painted one of the peacock prints on cardstock to put up on my mother’s calender as her May image, but now I’ve also got the one on canvas painted as well.

It looks quite like the other one as I’ve used the same inks and paints (see previous post for details), but there is a slight difference in how the colours look on the canvas one compared to the cardstock.

This is a close-up of one area.

A close look at the whole image.

And the whole canvas at a different angle.

I haven’t quite got the angle of the image right to catch the shimmer and shine this time, but I hope you like it.

.

So that’s it for today. I’ll show you how I get on with makeing something with my other screen prints in the future.

Sympathy Cards

 Posted by at 08:00 am

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog
Welsh Sympathy Cards

-oOo-

Good morning everybody!

Last month I published a post about a sympathy card I’d made for a family in our neighbourhood and I said I’d have to make up a few cards ready for the sad times when such a card is needed.  Well a few days ago, over a period of a couple of days, I had a little cardmaking session and my makes included some sympathy cards.

So I thought I’d separate out the sympathy cards into a blog post of their own snd show you those today.

.

When I showed you the results of my latest screen printing the begining of this month I included a couple of floral wreaths printed in black, where the masking tape over the wording had come off when washing the mesh between colours and so I had printed them out with words I didn’t want in the centre.

Well the first thing I did was get my round Duo Dies and cut the centre out of the print, as well as cut the print itself as a circular panel.

I coloured just the leaves in green with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter Brush Marker on one, and for the other I coloured the leaves using a green ProMarker and the flowers using the Sparkle Glitter pens.

Both are made on a 300 gsm white A5 card base and are layered with a white textured cardstock as well as using black cardstock for a layer and a strip over the white ribbon..

For this one I also used a piece of white ribbon (that came wrapped around some pillowcaces) on the card.

The greeting on the card above means A Word Of Comfort.  And on the card below  the wording Gyda Chydymdeimlad means With Sympathy.

The butterflies on this card were die cut using a free die that came on a tattered lace magazine and simply separated drom the rest of the cut.

After these two I went back to the same pack of crafting goodies from Hunkeydorey that I’d used for the Sympathy Card last month.

Both have a filigree frame and peel-off greetings.

This one has tge greeting Thinking About You and also has a matching insert with the sentiment With Sympathy on it.

This one simply has the greeting Gair o Gysur, which means a Word of Comfort on it.

But I’ve not added a greeting to the insert of this one yet.

.

I’ll do another post with the other cards in before long. Just want to make sure that the ones that are for a specific person have been received first.

I hope you like what you’ve seen and read – You should find a box below where you can leave a comment if you feel like it but due to the fact that, like many I’m sure, I’ve had some problems with Spam/advertising posts that are absolutely nothing to do with the content of my blog, I now moderate all comments before they go live. Genuine comments will go live when I’ve checked through the list – usually a couple of times a day.)

(Thank you to every body who’s left comments on my previous blog posts. I really do appreciate them all.)
If you can’t see the comment box then there should be a link that says “Responses” and clicking on that will bring up the box
