Christmas Cards – D

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

CRAFTING

Only two cards this time, both made by recycling old cards.

What I Did

I cut the fronts off a couple of old Christmas cards and cut them to the size required.

I used 6″ square base cards that came with a pre foiled border and put plain inserts with just a greeting inside.

I used foam tape to attach the toppers, and fingerlift tape to attach the inserts.

Christmas Cards – C

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

CRAFTING

In this blog post I have another batch of 6 Christmas cards with wintery scenes to show you. They are made with the same 6 images as in my last post, but made yp slightly differently.

What I Did

I used some square toppers that have artwork by Pollyanna Pickering on them.

I used 6″ square craft card base cards and put plain inserts with just a greeting inside.

For these cards I didn’t use lace as in the previous batch, but I added some “snow” texture over some of the slow areas on each topper for a slightly different look and feel.

I used foam tape to attach the toppers, and fingerlift tape to attach the inserts.

 Christmas Cards – A – Nativity

Hi and welcome to my blog.

Today I have the first of several batches of Chrixtmas cards I have made this year to show you.

CRAFTING
What I Did

This btch of cards were all made using this year’s Hunkydory Nativity themed collection.  Some are made using cardstock from within the collection and for others I’ve used other base cards of one type or another from my crafting stash. I have used foam tape to give some dimension, as well as fingerlift tape to attach the toppers.

I have inserted an insert into each. Some match the toppers and some are plain with just a greeting.

2021 Calendar – 10 – Hydref

October Calendar Page

Thank You! to all who are visiting my blog, whether for the first time or return visitors

Life

Despite my health not being the best, I have managed to do a little gardening. Moving and sitting down to do everything. But got some nice food for the table. For some reason only the dark purple coloured carrots grew from the pack of mixed carrots seeds. I added some Tesco orange carrots to them for some added colour for a sunday lunch in mid September.

With them we had some home grown “bright lights” (mixed colour) swiss chard and some home grown red potatoes.

While I was too shakey with my health to go out the garden the garden, a couple of the courgettes grew rather large to a marrow size, so I gave some away and made a marrow pie with one.  In fact, I had so much filling after prepareing it that I’ve bagged some and put into the freezer to make another pie in the winter.

The pie looked quite good after bakeing even if I do say so myself.

Crafting

Time to show you what I’ve put on my mother’s October calendar page.  If you missed seeing the previous pages you can see : January – Here! February – Here! March – Here! April – Here! May – Here! June – Here ! July – Here! August – Here! September – Here!

If you’ve seen any of my previous posts about the calendar I’ve been decorating for my mother month by month you will know that I ask her hat she would like next.  The theme chosen for October was animals again, so I had to something different to the donkeys I did last time.

What I Did

I believe that these images are by Pollyanna Pickering.  They all came in a kit together, as did the sheet of paper I used as a background.  I chose a grey Adorable Scorable as the main, frameing, background.

Everything was stuck on using fingerlift tape this time.

The finished piece was stuck up on the calendar with fingerlift tape.

I printed out the month in Welsh and used fingerlift tape again to stick this on.

The Finished Page

This is the panel ready to stick on the calendar.

The panel on the calendar.

The full calendar page up on the wall.

More crafting to show you at some point so please do keep checking back for a look.

Have a great month everybody.

2021 Calendar – 09 – Medi

September Calendar Page

Thank You! to all who are visiting my blog, whether for the first time or return visitors

Life

My health has taken a serious turn for the worse over the last few weeks.  I’ve had a cellulitis infection in my left leg – the leg that has never had such an infection before.  Then, having been on antibiotics for that for three weeks I developed jaundice.  Then I collapsed and had to be taken to hospital the end of August.  I will have to have more hospital visits to confirm exactly what is going on, but indications are not too good.

Which, of course, means that I did a rush job for Mam’s callendar page for September, and it really isn’t of my usual standard.  In fact I’ll go so far as to say it’s probably the worse I’ve done for her.

So …

Crafting

Time to show you what I’ve put on my mother’s September calendar page.  If you missed seeing the previous pages you can see : January – Here! February – Here! March – Here! April – Here! May – Here! June – Here ! July – Here! August – Here!

If you’ve seen any of my previous posts about the calendar I’ve been decorating for my mother month by month you will know that I ask her hat she would like next.  This month she asked for flowers.

What I Did

I just scribbled a background with green and blue watercolour markers.  Added in some brown, branch like, lines.  Then I stuck on a couple of different sized flower embelishments in several colours using glue gel.

The finished piece was left overnight to dry flat before it was stuck up on the calendar with fingerlift tape.

I printed out the month in Welsh and used fingerlift tape again to stick this on.

The Finished Page

This is the panel ready to stick on the calendar.

The panel on the callendar.

And the full callendar page up on the wall.

More crafting to show you at some point so please do keep checking back for a look.

Have a great month everybody.

Another Crochet Project – Lap Throw

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

A Lap Throw I Crocheted

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

I still had some bits of yarn left over from when I crocheted a blanket for myself some time ago, and then crocheted a blanket for Mam last month, which you can see – Here!  I wanted to use up all the little bits, so I decided to make Mam a lap throw ready for when the weather gets colder again

CRAFTING
What I Did

I crocheted smaller “granny squares” than I had done previously.  As some of the yarn pieces were getting a bit too short for a complete granfy square I did crochet some squares with different colours for different rows.  I then used some yarn to crochet join them together.  I finished off by crocheting a border all the way around, makeing the border wider top and bottom.

What I Used

Leftover yarn and the same brown yarn I’d bought to finish off Mam’s blanket last month.

Finished Items

This lap throw is much smaller than the blanket I made as it is just to throw over Mam’s legs.  She already has a shawl I crocheted her some time ago that gets wrapped around her shoulders if she feels cold.

Here’s Mam with the lap thrown over her legs – pretending to have a snooze.

She couldn’t pretend for long and then started laughing.

.

I have several bits of different crafting on the go at the moment, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks.

2021 Calendar – 06 – Mehefin

June Calendar Page

Thank You! to all who are visiting my blog, whether for the first time or return visitors

Life

As well as starting out in the garden last month, takeing my growing seedlings out to a covered area to start acclimatising, I started several batches of different mushrooms in boxes in the utility room.

These are white and Chestnut mushrooms growing the 2nd week in May. (It’s a shitake mushroom growing log in the bag on the right of the photo).

And again a few days later.

Crafting

Time to show you what I’ve put on my mother’s June calendar page.  If you missed seeing the previous pages you can see : January – Here! February – Here! March – Here! April – Here! May – Here!

If you’ve seen any of my previous posts about the calendar I’ve been decorating for my mother month by month you will know that I ask her hat she would like next.  This month she was sitting with me in the study while I was sorting through and taking the backs off old birthday cards a friend had given me. She picked out several cards she liked and I selected a few of them to put together to put on the calendar.

What I Did

I took the chosen cards and started laying them out. Cutting out pieces, such as butterflies, from one card, a floral border from another. Moving things around until I was happy with the look.

After getting the thumbs up from Mam I set to sticking the whole lot down with fingerlift tape and glue gel.

The finished piece was left overnight to dry flat before it was stuck up on the calendar with fingerlift tape.

I printed out the month in Welsh and used fingerlift tape again to stick this on.

The Finished Page

This is what the panel looks like.

And again in different lighting.

This is the panel on the calendar.

More crafting to show you at some point so please do keep checking back for a look.

Have a great month everybody.

Crochet – Blanket

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

A Blanket I Crocheted

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

With the weather not being as cold as it has been my mother was finding her continental quilt a bit warm when she goes back to bed after lunch for her afternoon nap.  I therefore decided to use up some yearn I had and crochet her a blanket.

CRAFTING
What I Did

This blanket is similar to one I made for myself some time ago.  The difference is that this time I did one less row around for each “granny square”, and used a different colour for border, etc.

What I Used

For this project I used a lot of leftover yarn that I had from makeing a similar blanket for myself some time ago.  And I bought some extra yarn in a brown colour to use for the joining up of the squares and around the outside as a border.

Finished Items

As you can see, I had a lot of different colours of yarn leftover from my previous project to make this blanket.  The maroon coloured yarn was the one I’d used for joining and outside border on my own blanket I made previously.

This is what the whole blanket looks like when spread out.

I think Mam was quite happy with it when she tried it out.

.

I have several bits of different crafting on the go at the moment, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks.
