Happy New Year to each one of you
Well – here we are in 2018. I do trust that this will be a really special year for you, my friends. I hope you have some lovely plans for the year, which you will see come to pass.
My workdesk hasn’t seen a huge amount of action yet this year – but I did sit down yesterday and make lots of thankyou cards – then wrote my letters. Batch-make, I’m afraid, simple, but hopefully acceptable to the recipients! Apart from that, all I have done is put my crafty presents on the desk ready to find a home for them!
I am SO looking forward to making that robin kit! I love playing with felt! Some dies, ribbon, cord, and a punch. My family decided that Nain (that’s me – a Welsh Grandma) needed to have a stocking from Santa this year!! Filled with some lovely fun items – each member of the family had chosen one item! The three bigger dies were from Mr and Mrs D – love that wise men die! Have borrowed Mrs D’s in the past…
Told you the cards were simple! Each one was slightly different – coloured card, size, border…
Having spent a few days with my whole family, my younger daughter gave me this glorious blanket crocheted by her MIL, to send to Uganda. She had been really busy on our behalf… because…
… yes, she had also knitted this lovely cardigan for one of the children! Some months back she had asked if I had “any spare wool” that needed knitting up! Well, I ask you, fancy asking that of a crafter! Of course there was wool in my stash! So, I put together a lovely big bag of wool – and bingo! Blankets, jumpers, cardigans – all set for Uganda. Thank you Sue!!!
So, that’s me, my friends. Not really terribly active yet after a lovely Christmas break. But – I have to stir my stumps pretty smartish now! I spoke with the owners of the hotel in church on Sunday. They have a conference coming in the 2nd week of February – and would like a rack full of cards! That means at least 60… Hmm! May be buried under the usual mound of clutter by next week, then!!!
Take care my friends. God bless you in 2018.
