March 4th 2016

Hi all. Sorry for being absent I got a bit on the busy side here with looking after baby hedgehogs. Well that is my excuse anyway. I had a bit of a health scare and so have decided to take a back seat with the looking after the hedgehogs, instead I can help in another way...... making things to help raise funds to help other rescues look after them.  I have also joined a few others in raising funds for other charities too. So back to doing my crocheting and card making. And here are a few items I have been busy making for charity, family and friends....

 We had a new baby girl born in the family in the new year. I made a cute little outfit to welcome her to the family and a matching blanket.
 Then my neighbour was expecting a little boy. So I made a few little items for him. I  really enjoyed making these items for the babies.

 We also had our own addition to the family here since my last posting...... This is Millie our rescue dog. She keeps us both busy and on our toes. She is short haired and so feels the cold a bit. So I made her a sweater. I have also joined a Knit and Natter group at our local library. We meet on two different days of the week. And it is fortnightly..... but I end up going every week. :) I am hoping to learn to make a pair of socks.
    I have also found my mojo again with my card making too. I did make our Christmas cards again this year and a few birthday cards. I have been getting a few new dies for my die cutting and this is the results.
We have a new craft shopping channel here and I have fallen for Creative Expressions and the team of crafters they have. These are from Sue Wilson's dies. Another American who I really admire her work. And if you would like to check out her cards which are works of art you can visit her blog too. She has loads of ideas and videos of how to make her cards. Don't blame me if you get hooked too. :)
