Doodled Kingfisher

Hello

Sorry I have been absent this week, it’s been quite a few days with a huge workload and a silly puppy suffering an eye trauma….he seems to be improving now thank goodness.

Anyway, a little doodle to share today of a kingfisher.  It’s not finished yet.

Trusty Teal Dragonfly

Hello

I have been doing some quick cards recently and I fancied doing something a little more involved.  So I reached for a selection of my favourite stamps and collage stamped a background.  Not surprising I reached for my trusty teal inkpad.

The crochet lace is a length I had made previously and I also found the perfect beaded dragonfly to hang in the aperture.

Pink Butterflies

Hello

I really enjoyed making my ATC at the weekend in bright colours and it inspired me to continue the pink theme with some stamping.

I regularly fall back on a combination of pink and yellow but I tried to make this one bright and invigorating.

I used stamps from Chocolate Baroque and a Sizzix die.

A quick Thank You card

Hello

I always make a point of making my children send their “Thank You” cards after Christmas and Birthdays as I think it is a nice thing to do and is so often overlooked these days. I remember when I was a child and it was almost obligatory to write a note but now I don’t seem to receive “Thank You” notes which saddens me, so I always nag until it is done.

Here is one card I made for my Auntie all ready for my boys to write in.

A simple card but one that I know will be appreciated.

Pink Blanket of Granny Squares

Hello

“A change is as good as a rest” they say, so I was thrilled when my friend asked if I could make her another blanket for her baby but this time bigger to fit her cot.  Her babies cot and room is very subtle and neutral but there was a sparkle in her eye when she suggested something pink.  Now pink is always out of bounds as I am a purple girl, so I promptly went to select a few shades of pink to commence a blanket. I made my selection; bright pink, pale pink and oops a purple one but it did have a pink fleck in.

With my recent project for my boys involving larger time consuming squares I opted for smaller squares, plus I thought this would work better for a smaller blanket anyway.

I chose to do a granny square I did many years ago when I bought my first house and filled it with afghans.  A very simple granny square but very effective as it creates a “rib” effect by anchoring the treble around the post instead of using the chain at the top.  It is also very dense and warm.

I managed to get the blanket finished over Christmas and needless to say, she was thrilled to bits with it. It’s always a pleasure to make things when they are appreciated and always a pleasure to go and have cuddles with her little baby who is now crawling.

I hope you like it.
