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
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
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.
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
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
