Knitted Jumper

At the beginning of last year I started knitting a jumper for my Grandson. I finished knitting it back in July but then couldn't be bothered to sew it together as I hate that job. Well last week I git round to it and here is the finished product.

The only trouble is, it's too small for Leon now so I am going to have to wait to give it to my new grandson that is due to be born any moment now. It will probably fit him on a couple of years time :-)

Friend's Birthday Cards

Well not been keeping up to date with my blogging but then I haven't really been making cards either this year apart from those at workshops and due to my sister being down last week I did miss Clair's last one. 

However I did make 2 cards this year, both for my friend Pam who turned 65 at the end of January. At the beginning of January I received a call from Pam's hubby asking me if I can make a card for him. My mojo had disappeared ( still on hols I think!!) but I racked my brains and then remembered that I had some images from Twiggy & Toots and used that image. The greeting was done via CAP as was the pink bow which has been decoupaged. Grey and pink backing papers were used and finished off with grey ribbon and gems. The card is 8 x 8 in size.



Then I had to think of a card from me. I had a couple of ideas but wanted something simple but sophisticated. Hopefully I achieved it with this card. This was designed in CAP using the 'Secrets' kit. This was printed off and then matted onto black card and added some gems.

Latest Workshop Card

I am a bit behind on all my blog posts at the moment. Opps!! Haven't been dong much crafting as trying to give the house a spring clean. I am a bit of a hoarder when it comes to paperwork so I have had to be good and get rid of a lot of it, (hubby's payslips going back to the 80's - gas boiler service papers going back to when we first moved in the house back in 1994 ). I have had to be very brave and throw them all out!

Anyway as I said not time to do crafting but have been to workshop and here is the latest card we did. When I first saw the card on Clair's blog, I wasn't impressed as I don't do cupcakes but when I was making it I really likes it and I liked the way it turned out.


We made a matching tag and I decided to make it into a card for one of my great niece's birthdays.

Tuesday's Monthly Workshop has started

Tuesday card workshop started last week and here are the 6 cards that we made. I have to say that I loved all the cards this month, so much that I wanted to order all the stamp sets :-) but I didn't!! Although I did order the plane stamps as they are so versatile.

All the cards are little notelet size which I think is a great size to work with. All products used are Stampin Up, although I have added a few gems to the cards from my stash.

Saltdean Craft Workshop has restarted.

Well haven't started off very well with my blogging this year so far, I have so much I want to do craft wise but I just don't seem to have the time. I will make the time though!. Thank goodness for my craft workshops I attend. At least I know I'll make a card/cards there :-)

Talking of which my Saltdean Workshop with Clair  started up again last week, and it was great to be back there.  We are in a new venue and have a bit longer time for the class as we are known to chat a bit!

Here is the first card that we made. A lovely one to start the year off with. Used Stampin Up and MFT stamps and punches.

Weigh In Day

Well I hold my head in shame because I have put on 1/2lb. I thought I had been good this week but when I look back I know that I haven't. I am now going to make a concerted effort to do better this week. I will be going back to the gym and doingmore exercise.

I have decided that I need to change my slimming class as my original consultant has left and can't seem gel with the new one that has taken over so I am changing days and classes.

Hopefully I will have better news next week.

Initial Weigh in

Just a quick post to let you all know I have had my initial weigh n following Christmas and me demolishing every piece of food in the house and having a lovely cream tea this afternoon (sandwiches, scones and cakes mmmmmmmm) I only put on 3lb over the two weeks of Christmas. I do weigh at least 1/2 stone more than  did this time last year (mainly due to my holiday and Christmas) but it could be a whole lot worse!!

Will keep you updated on how I do!!
