Not a Card but a Present

Wow two posts in two days...  I'm even impressing myself!!

For those of you expecting a card - sorry to disappoint.  It's knitting.....

These were knitted for my bestest mate Gail for her birthday many months ago (told you all I had been busy but hadn't blogged anything)  If you want to see a card here's the one I made for her.

I've been knitting since I was a little kid and I usually have something on the go - at the moment I'm discovering socks.  I know you might all think I'm mad when I say this but there is something strangely comforting about knitting your own socks.

When I looked through my photos to see what I had to show you I found a picture of embroidered gloves and shoes that I took on a visit to the Burrell Collection.  If you're ever near Glasgow I can highly recommend a visit.  I thought I share a couple of my pics with you...

Aren't these incredible - if you click on the images you should get a bigger picture to see the detail.

I also found this picture and couldn't resist showing it to you...

This is Shadow peaking over the table at me - he likes sleeping on my chair and I think he was trying to tell me to move LOL.

I didn't mean to worry anyone with my last post, some personal stuff happened but the main reason for me not being about was my pc got a really nasty virus and it took months to get it fixed (huge thanks to Chris, my OH - he's a smart cookie).  We only got the last bit of it working yesterday.  Talk about withdrawal symptoms LOL.

Finding My Way Back with a Map

Hello there

I hope there are still some of you out there still reading my poor neglected blog.  I'm not gonna go into the details but a lot has been happening here but as everything has settled down and I've still been crafting so I'm back to  share some things with you.

My first post is a birthday card I made for my future FIL.  He loves to travel and loves old maps so this one was pretty straightforward.

I matted some old maps DP onto some black card, layered it and used some photo corners.  As usual I made a matching envelope. 

If you can see the detail on the circle map you'll see it mentions Australia - I thought this was appropriate as my future BIL lives there.

I promise you won't have as long to wait for my next post ... :)
