A few things to share….


Popping in to share a few things I’ve finished/begun recently.

First up are some cards.

I couldn’t stop at one! I was very lucky to receive this Aletnew stamp and die set from a fellow blogger recently with a lovely handmade card. It brightened my day.

I coloured one with alcohol markers, one with intense and normal water colour pencils and the last with normal pencils. My colouring is a little rusty!

Next I made a couple of cards using NBUS Kazazz camillia stamp. I coloured these with the kids school water colour paints.

This one was finished with a sentiment from Jane’s Doodles.

I embossed the sentiment on this one. The sentiment is from PTI.

I have also been trying very hard to knit down my yarn stash. Slowly one skein at a time!

This yarn I picked up from the Darebin Fibre Festival last year from Swish yarns.

Cable socks! What was I thinking? This is Snowflake socks pattern from Knitpicks Toasty Toes book. And these were my first pair of toe up socks. I really liked knitting socks this way.

Miss 20 as my foot model!
This was a work in progress pic I shared on instagram.

And because I have more yarn (and more time thanks to Dan and Covid-19) I have started another pair.

A simpler pair this time. Brenda’s basic toe up socks.

Thanks for hanging into the end

Until next time stay well

  1. Always lots of interest on your posts Vicki! What a lovely gift those stamped critters were and I have to say there is nothing ‘rusty’ about your colouring! Your cable socks are stunning – great effort! Keep busy/inspired and enjoy your multitude of talents – while you keep safe and well!

  2. You have been very busy my friend, loving your cards and your ‘rusty’ colouring is divine lol. Of course those flowers are on display and very appreciated, and man oh man knitting cable socks, you are a woman on a mission lol.

    1. Ah thank you. I have a lovely show piece too 😉 After I made your card I still had stuff on my desk and decided the flowers were a good fit for my friend who had an ISO birthday.

      I really have no idea what I was thinking when I started cable socks – so much effort for something very few will see! Once I had started though I was committed! I have an embarassingly large yarn stash.
