Party Animal for a 20th…

Hello

If you live around my part of the world I hope you are managing with the extremes of weather we have been having. Cold one day hot the next! We wouldn’t like it any other way.

Anyway I have a few things to share

ABS Party Animals (487x640)

This is a card I have made by request from my eldest daughter.  I used Annabelle Stamps Party Animals and coloured with markers (SU and Tim Holtz), layered and mounted on to my card front.  I die cut the “20” using Memory box classic numbers die and a second time with fun foam. A touch of glossy accents to finish off.  The recipient of this card is after a new puppy!

I am linking this up to the 30 Day colouring challenge here

This is my second card for the challenge. I hope to have one or two more to share before the end of the challenge.

It has been particularly busy. Mr M has his last day of formal classes on Friday and we are then off to Graduation dinner. Then it is a little study time before the exams start.  As his year is coming to an end mine is getting busier. As a pre school enrolment officer it is busy finalising numbers and groups for 2016.

A little knitting share

Not just socks - for Kaitlin 2015 (640x478)These were made using Moda Vera not just socks yarn and the pattern on the back of the ball band. These were requested by Ms E as a gift for a friend later this month.

This is my very first pair of socks. I shared these with my Wednesday group today and some thought I had been very clever and changed the wool to create the pattern. I must admit the wool is varigated and knits up to this pattern.

and these

Hermione s Everyday socks - Tash (640x478)

These are a work in progress. I have used this pattern – Hermione’s Everyday socks which can be found on ravelry as a free download here. Thank you to Erica Leuder. I have also used the notes from here thank you.

I was requested to have this pair finished by this coming Friday as a gift for one of Ms E’s friends. Unfortunately I wont make that deadline. I work tomorrow and then I have a meeting for my enrolment officer job tomorrow night.

I will come back and share when they are complete.

Two more pics before I go

orchid 2 (520x640)

orchid 3 (478x640)

These are pics of the only orchid I kept of my Mum’s after she passed.  It has flowered every year I have had it and I don’t do anything special to it and hardly remember to water it. It normally sits under a tree near the fence!

Thanks for stopping

Until next time

Cheers

  1. Thanks for sharing that ABS image – I have used that in the past, and it’s lovely to see it again! Your socks are amazing – the variegated wool has knitted up to a lovely pattern. What a precious orchid you have – flowering so regularly for you! Enjoy the Melbourne weather Vicki – I am too!

  2. Wow lots of photos to share. Don’t remember the dog from Annabells, its so cute. Love your card.
    Love the sox, I cant knit full stop. Tried once and the yarn was so tight on the needles we had to cut it off with a knife lol. Obviously it made me too tense. Yours looks brilliant.
    What a beautiful orchid and how brilliant that it continues to flower and look so beautiful even when you forget to water it.
